Miraclene Moltio and Angela Cauilan, fifth year BS Accountancy students, represented the University of Baguio (UB) in the 15th National Accounting Quiz Showdown held at SGV & Co., Makati City last July 15.
The quiz covered all six subjects in the CPA licensure examination: auditing, management advisory services, taxation, regulatory framework for business transactions, financial accounting and reporting, and advanced financial accounting and reporting.
Competing against other students from the different schools in Region 1 and CAR, Cauilan finished at rank 16 while Moltio landed in the 22nd spot.
Over a hundred participants gathered for the event, which was organized by the National Federation of Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants. The activity is held annually in line with the celebration of the Philippine Accountancy Week.
The UB participants were accompanied by their adviser, Carren Cheong, a faculty member of the UB School of Business Administration and Accountancy. – Glydel Ann Daniel
