Let's consider this shameless pluggging...

You've graduated from high school. Do you know what to do for the next four years?

This statistics is a result of the study conducted by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), based on the average passing in the board examinations of all courses of all universities and colleges in the Philippines.

This study is concluded every 10 years. The following is the result of the first study from 1992 to 2001. Five schools come from Luzon, two from the Visayas and three from Mindanao.

1. University of the Philippines (Diliman Campus/Luzon)

2. Silliman University (Dumaguete City/Visayas)

3. Ateneo de Davao University (Davao/Mindanao)

4. Ateneo de Manila University (Manila/Luzon)

5. University of Sto. Tomas (Manila/Luzon)

6. Mindanao State University (Marawi/Mindanao)

7. Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (Manila/Luzon)

8. Saint Louis University (Baguio City/Luzon)

9. University of San Carlos (Cebu City/Visayas)

10. Xavier University (Cagayan de Oro/Mindanao)

I mean, why go study in a smog-infested metropolis, when you can do all that under all this sun, seeing all that surf? And go whale-watching or scuba-diving or mountaineering on the weekend? And living life on the ridiculous side of cheap, too? (Come on, movie tickets here cost P35.)
