    yes, I believe this data is fake. Why, paano pumasok ang Fr. urious College as no 14 instead of the University of the Cordilleras? Check the performance of University of the Cordilleras sa data ng PRC at CHED to confirm na sila dapat ang nasa 14 slot

    University of Southeastern Philippines yan not southern. Like ko ang university na yan. Kasi sa 100 students na nag enroll 30 or less lang ang gagraduate. Laglagan na kug laglagan. Deserving students will shine. XD

    Why is it that Bicol University not in the list. Almost every exam BU has a passer, not only passer but placer.
