Passing the ECE Board: Hurdles and Gratitude

The Quezon City University (QCU) commended John Paul Nalla, Joshua Cervantes, and Zoren Santiago for passing the October 2021 Electronics Engineering Licensure Examination.

The Professional Regulation Committee (PRC) released the results of the Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) board examination. Of 1,484 candidates, 710 passed. It was an overwhelming joy for the three QCU ECE students to be among those who passed the ECE exam.

According to Nalla, patience is going to be a major factor before reaching the goal. Having passed the ECT exam first, he was about to take the ECE board exam when the pandemic hit, which made him unsure whether to take the test, “Akala ko mga 2 weeks, 3 weeks matatapos na yung pandemic pero hindi kaya nag doubt na ko kung magtatake pa ba ako,” He said.

Decision wasn’t the only problem he had. Nalla was placed into conditional remarks for not reaching the mathematics requirement. Fortunately enough after the results came in, it was a relief for him that all the hardship paid off, “Iba yung saya sa dalawang taon na paghihintay. Andami kong natutunan talaga,”

Likewise, Cervantes also shared his experience of becoming a licensed engineer. He reflects upon all the sacrifices he has made and explains how his technical training has enabled him to learn fast and have clear objectives towards reaching his goal.

Although he passed the three other subjects in the board exam, it wasn’t enough as he was also given a conditional remark. He did, however, pass on his second attempt.

QCU taught him the value of hard work and diligence. “To achieve what you want, it requires sacrifice,” he said.

Both ECE board passers expressed their gratitude to God, their loved ones, professors at QCU, and most of all to the “OPLAN Rehab” who encouraged them to continue. (OPLAN Rehab is the name of their group according to Nalla).“Hindi naman talaga kailangang matalino ka, tiyaga at consistency sa pag-rereview lang ang kailangan,”

Santiago stressed. While he describes himself as an average student, his perseverance enabled him to reach his goal of becoming a licensed Electronics Engineer. Santiago mentioned that taking the board wasn’t what he planned to do but was influenced by his parents, “Gusto kong patunayan sa mga magulang ko na pwede silang magkaroon ng sariling engineer,” he said. God, his friends, and the professors at the university are among the many things he is grateful for.

Three other graduates from the same program passed the ECT exam, earning QCU a 37.5% passing rate on the ECE board exam and a 100% passing rate on the ECT licensure examination.
