Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

EIGHTY-SIX grad­u­ates from the Bacolod City Col­lege (BCC) have passed the Li­cen­sure Ex­am­i­na­tion for Teach­ers (LET) given in Septemb e r.

BCC, which is run by the city gov­ern­ment, has con­sis­tently ranked among the coun­try’s Top 10 in pass­ing per­cent­age and has also pro­duced top­notch­ers in the pre­vi­ous years.

“I have al­ways con­sid­ered BCC as my flag­ship project be­cause I know the fu­ture of our chil­dren hinges on their de­grees. And it makes me even prouder that while we have the cheap­est tu­ition at only P30 per unit since 1997 up to now, we can give them qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion,” Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia said.

BCC was founded in 1997 dur­ing the first term of Leonar­dia as mayor. It has al­ready pro­duced a to­tal of 10,056 grad­u­ates from 2000 to 2018.

BCC Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment head Elias Alias said that in the re­cent LET re­sults, they have 42 passers in Bach­e­lor of El­e­men­tary Ed­u­ca­tion (BEED), 26 in Bach­e­lor of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion (BSED) ma­jor in English, and 18 BSED ma­jor in Math­e­mat­ics.

Their BSED Math­e­mat­ics has 100 per­cent pass­ing rate (all 18 tak­ers passed), BSED English has 81.25 per­cent (26 of 32 passed), and BEED— 62.68 per­cent (42 of 67 passed).

Alias said the pass­ing rate of BCC el­e­men­tary ed­u­ca­tion this year was 58.3 per­cent, while the na­tional pass­ing rate was 20.08 per­cent. For sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion, the BCC pass­ing rate was 70.14 per­cent, while the na­tional pass­ing rate was 48.03 per­cent.

More­over, BCC ranked 23rd in the Top 24 Best Per­form­ing Schools in the Philip­pines out of 4,500 col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties of­fer­ing ed­u­ca­tion cour­ses, Alias added.

Mean­while, ac­cord­ing to Col­lege Ad­min­is­tra­tor Ma. Johanna Ann Bay­o­neta, in 2016, Ma. Fa­tima Ofra­cio, who grad­u­ated cum laude with a BEED de­gree, ranked 9th in the Let-el­e­men­tary level, among 77,466 ex­am­i­nees, with a gen­eral av­er­age of 86.40.

Bay­o­neta also said that aside from Ofra­cio’s feat, BCC is also the only col­lege in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal that was in­cluded in the Top 10 Per­form­ing Schools in the 2016 LET, af­ter post­ing an 81.67 per­cent pass­ing rate (49 passers out of 60 ex­am­i­nees). In 2008, Ja­son Azuelo, who also grad­u­ated with a BSED Math de­gree, ranked 14th in the Let-sec­ondary Level, she added.

BCC has its main cam­pus in Barangay Ta­c­ul­ing, with ex­ten­sion class­rooms in Barangays Sum-ag and Este­fa­nia.
