The Civil Engineering (CE) Licensure Examination of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) registers the most number of board exam takers every year that falls under engineering, coming from more than 250 civil engineering schools across the Philippines.
Although the average national passing rate annually stayed around 40% from 2016 to 2019, the number of takers increases at least 10% every year. Based on available data, more than 13,700 civil engineer hopefuls took the CE Board Exam in 2015, and this later ballooned to more than 23,900 in 2019. This means that it gets more difficult to pass the test when there are more takers each year but the passing rate does not change.
But what does that mean for those who clinch the highest grade in the CE Board Exam? Just one thing: they are smart enough to outperform the thousand others in getting the most correct answers.
Below is the roster of the number one passers in the CE Board Exam from 2015 to 2019. It is followed by a table of the passing rate every year and the list of the top 1 of the same exam covering the same period.
