IT is confirmed. I belong to the older generation not only of students but of teachers. In my time, it was rare to graduate with Latin honors, more so as summa cum laude. Not anymore. At UP Diliman alone, there are 147 who are graduating as summa, more than the total combined number from 2018 until 2021.

In fact, in addition to them, a total of 634 are graduating cum laude, while 652 are graduating magna cum laude, for a total of 1,433 who are graduating with Latin honors.
