Among the passers were Accountancy, Business, and Management strand teacher, Mr. Romer V. Parreñas, CPA, alumni Elaine Margaret Deslate, CPA (JHS Batch 2016), Isabella Jade M. Escubillo, CPA, (BS Accountancy Batch 2017), Niel Angelo E. Puertollano, CPA (JHS Batch 2015), Marianne Fe S. Peronce, CPA (BS Accountancy Batch 2022), Goldy May Silva, CPA (SHS Batch 2018), and Fredrick C. Wee, CPA (SHS Batch 2019).

As an accounting teacher of the institution, Parreñas acknowledges that his class discussions have played a big significance in enhancing his comprehension of the subject matter.

“To be honest, I was not fully prepared, but I prayed hard. Acknowledging my shortcomings during the preparation, I realized that achieving your goals is not just for yourself but for those who believe in you, so no matter how tough it gets, keep persevering,” shared Parreñas.

Recognizing the school’s pivotal role in the success of its alumni in the CPALE, these individuals have built a strong foundation for their achievements, with the institution playing an integral part in their accomplishments.

Peronce, an alumna of HSCI’s Bachelor of Science in Accountancy program, reflected on her rigorous experience in taking the exam and shared that the journey of taking the CPALE was very challenging, but it was a challenge that anyone can win through motivation, self-confidence, and hard work.

“Learn to love the process, because 99.9% of the time, you will be in the process. Concentrate on your personal development and progression at your own pace. Lastly, I want all aspiring accountants to take pride because no one goes through this as hard as CPAs,” Wee, an alumnus of SHS Batch 2018, added when asked of his message to aspiring accountants.

The Professional Regulation Commission released the results with 2,740 passers out of the 8,734 examinees and a national passing percentage of 31.37 per cent. The exam is held in the months of May and October as the ultimate test of competence for aspiring public accountants in the country.
