QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – If you are planning to enrol in law or accounting course at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, you are advised to make alternative plans.
Beginning next semester, U.P. Diliman is abolishing its law and accounting courses.
The difficult decision was reached today by the U.P. Board of Regents after the tax-funded state university failed to place in the top ten in the most recent Bar and the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) board exams.
“We cannot in conscience continue to offer these courses when none of our graduates 🎓 make it to the top ten board examinees,” the board said.
U.P. students are expected to stage a rally at the Diliman campus this week to protest the decision by the Board of Regents.
Well, that’s what U.P. students are good at. Rallies.
