Philippine Pharmacists Licensure Examination (PPLE) Score Indicators: A Cebu School Experience
Florencio Villester Arce, Jr.*, Gerard Lee Lo See, Yolanda Chua Deliman
This study aimed to explain the relationship of quantitative and qualitative indicators to Philippine Pharmacists Licensure Examination (PPLE) performance, identified indicators which can predict PPLE performance, and explored reasons for unsuccessful performance. A descriptive, correlational study was employed on the performance of 259 USC pharmacy graduates from 2010 - 2014. Statistical analyses were done using Pearson Correlation and Model Regression Analysis. Results revealed that Average Course Cluster GPA, Semestral GPAI-2, Semestral GPAIII-1, Male gender, USC IQ Scores, and Private Sectarian type of high school were found to have moderate positive relationship with PPLE average. These indicators were developed into a model with a predictive rate of 55.20%. The model can predict a BS graduate´s performance in the PPLE. Lastly, the reasons for unsuccessful attempt as perceived by the examinees were lack of preparation and being pressured by family members despite their unpreparedness to take the PPLE that led to their failure.
