The student who obtained the highest grade in the University of the Philippines (UP) since World War II, Tiffany Grace Uy, has earned praises once again after placing fifth in the recently concluded 2020 physician licensure examination.
Uy has graduated as valedictorian with a cum laude at the UP Manila College of Medicine. She became popular because of her record-breaking General Weighted Average (GWA) in 2015.
In June 2015 interview with CNN, Uy said that the honors she received are not her end goal.
“For me, scoring high grades or getting titles isn’t fulfilling at all, because I’m still a powerless individual,” she said.
