VMUF also posted a 100-percent passing mark this year.

The Professional Regulation Commission identified the board topnotchers as second-placer Star Grace Gonzales of Calasiao town, with an average of 84.25 percent, and ninth-placer Sarah Grace Pioquinto of Malasiqui, with an average of 81.25 percent.
