Student who always get 'tres' in college, ends up being a board topnotcher


They say, "failures make you better." This seems to be true as a student from the University of Sto. Tomas was made and kept motivated by his low grades before landing in the list of board topnotchers.

Newly seasoned healthcare professional Francis Jacob Paras is the top 5 in the 2021 Medical Technologist Licensure Examination with a rating of 87.50 percent.

Paras admitted that he is just a regular and average student. Mostly, his grades were 3. Although it still means "passed," it is still considerably low. 

However, Paras did not let himself be discouraged with his poor remarks in school. Instead, his low grades became his inspiration and motivation to bring out the best out of him in the board exam.

“To pass and top the boards was the flame that ignited my will to study, but my interest in learning and relating everything I learned to real-life situations were what pushed me and motivated me to keep on studying every day," said Paras.

After months of extensive review, Paras was very happy to achieve his goal of acing the board exam.

“Di man maayos ang grades ko at puro tres man ako nung college, pero bawing-bawi pala nung nakapag-boards na ako."

For average students like him, Paras reminded them that grades do not define one's worth and that failure should ignite their desire to be the better version of themselves.

“Failures and low grades don’t make you less of a person than those with higher grades. Use that failure to further motivate you to bring out the hidden potential hiding in each and every one of us.”
