PGNV awards P200k to board exam 1st Placer
Mr. KHARAM BARICAUA MOLBOG, RMT, a graduate of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) who topped the August 2022 Medical Technologist Licensure Examination with a score of 91.90%, received a check in the amount of P200K from officials of the Provincial Government of Nueva Vizcaya (PGNV) led by Governor Carlos M. Padilla and Vice Governor Jose V. Gambito during the flag hoisting ceremony sponsored by the Governor’s Office held on April 3, 2023 at the People’s Stage-Quadrangle, Provincial Capitol.
The financial award is by virtue of Ordinance No. 2022-224, otherwise known as “An Ordinance Granting Cash Incentive To A Novo Vizcayano Topnotcher In Any Professional Licensure Examination, And Appropriating Funds Therefor”. RMT Kharam who hails from Solano, Nueva Vizcaya is the first awardee under the said PGNV ordinance.
He is currently enrolled in the UST Medical School and was also part of the Team that won the Inter-Medical School Pharmacology Quiz Contest held last March 3.
The future Cardiologist who humbly said that he doubts if he could repeat his accomplishment offers one piece of advice to those taking board exams, i.e., “Preparation starts on the first day of classes. Absorb everything you learn.”
