21-year-old Cebu student tops CPA exam

05/25/2010 - CEBU CITY, Philippines —A 21-year-old woman, whose family owns a flower business at Freedom Park here, has topped the 2010 board licensure examinations for certified public accountants with a score of 93.14 percent.

Gecel Cabucan Codera, who graduated magna cum laude in Bachelor of Science Accountancy from the University of San Jose Recoletos (USJR), said she was inside the Basilica del Santo Niño when her reviewer informed her by mobile phone of her feat at 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

Four other examinees from the city—two also graduating from the USJR, one from the University of Cebu (UC) and one from the University of San Carlos (USC)—were among the top 10 in the list of successful examinees released by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

Nino Martin Arcenal Juntong of the USJR placed third with 92.71 percent, while both Mark Solatorio, also of the USJR, and Rene Boy Monsida Lebores of the UC were in sixth place with 92 percent.

Ritchie Zanoria Tejana from the USC was 10th with a score of 91.14 percent.

In an interview over station dyLA, Codera said she could not believe landing on the No. 1 spot, considering that it was a difficult examination.

Codera said she went to the Sto. Niño Church because she wanted to be alone on the day the results were to be released. “I could not help but cry inside the church,” she said.

Codera is the second of five siblings. Her parents, Reynaldo and Gina Codera, are engaged in buying flowers in Freedom Park, Cebu City and supplying them to Tacloban City. (Inquirer.net)
