Saint Louis University in Baguio City (89.91%) made the 4th rank on the list for 2019, ahead of Bicol University-Legazpi (86.10%) at 5th rank, University of the Philippines-Los Baños (83.67%) at 6th, Cebu Institute of Technology University (80.86%) at 7th, and University of the Philippines Visayas-Iloilo City earned the 8th spot with an 80.50% overall score.

Rounding out the remaining two places for the first top 10 performing schools are the Mapua University-Manila (80.36%) at 9th rank, and Visayas State University-Baybay (79.50%) at 10th.

Each school was ranked according to a methodology that assesses five indicators: board exam passing rate, number of examinees, top performing examinees, accreditation, and faculty-student ratio. In this ranking, the school was checked its accreditation status in chemistry and chemical engineering programs.

Of the 144 colleges and universities featured in the chemical technician school ranking, many are state colleges and universities, including a total of 3 public schools in the Metro Manila.

To rank the schools, we took the passing rate of chemical technician licensure examination in October 2019, the number of examinees, and top-performing examinees as the overall board exam performance, and faculty-student ratio and accreditation status of the chemistry/chemical engineering programs as other criteria. Note that the passing rates we used for the 2019 chemical technician licensure examination were at least 70% (unlike to the PRC’s 80%), and a minimum of 20 examinees (unlike the PRC’s 50 minimum examinees in the October 2019 Chemical Technician Licensure Examination).

Read on for an overview of this year’s best colleges and universities for chemical technicians, starting with a look at the top 10.
