Engineering student who always get low marks in college, almost become a topnotcher

Being an average student in college, engineering student Enrico Escobar never thought that one day he will be one of the board passers who will obtain an impressive rating and would almost become a topnotcher.

Enrico graduated with a course Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in 2020 from Cavite State University. According to him, when he was in college, he was not as smart as his friends and classmates.

Oftentimes, his grades would play around 70 or a little bit higher. He would find it hard to study his lessons because he has no companion or study buddy during his college days. 

When he graduated, Enrico did not have much time to review because of his work not until he resigned on March 16. 

“Kaya kahit di ako nag-top, feeling ko topnotcher na rin ako sa naabot ko kahit sa kokonting panahon para mag-prepare.”

But to his surprise, Enrico was still able to get higher marks with an average of 88.70 - a few digits closer to the two other board passers who ranked 10th place with a rating of 91.55 percent. 

An "almost", indeed.

Despite not being able to reach the topnotch list, the newly licensed engineer is still very happy because of the unexpected results of his exam.

When asked about his advice to students who will be taking the board exam in the future, Enrico said that they should focus more on areas that they find difficult and listen to their mentors in their respective review centers during their final coaching.

“Mag-focus ka sa mga alam mong mahina ka. Internalize the concepts. Sa preboards or quizzes, isulat mo sa hiwalay na papel kung saang topic ka nahihirapan.”

“Totoong mas alam nila [review centers] kung paano ka papasa ng board exams. Makikinig nang maige sa final coaching.”
