Top Stories | Out of 26 competing schools nationwide, students from the College of Accountancy (COA) bag the 8th place in the 15th Alfredo M. Velayo Cup “PRISMATICA: Reign of the Brightest Hues,” an Online National Accounting Quiz Bee, sponsored by University of Santo Tomas last March 13, 2021 via Zoom.

Bryan James Abarera, Catherine May Dela Vega, and Nesrene Bergancia composed the team representing University of Saint Anthony (USANT) in the said event, where they participated in an elimination round and a quiz bee. Elimination rounds filtered the participants through questions based on board examination subjects which resulted to 10 finalists competing in the quiz bee as the final round, where a correct minus wrong pointing system was applied.

After the four-hour long intellectual grapple, Abarera, De la Vega, and Bergancia managed to garner a total of 300 points in the final round, putting them on 8th place in the competition and defeating 18 other participating schools from all over the country.

This national feat once again affirms the department’s commitment to providing quality education to produce competent Certified Public Accountants.
