    CONGRATS to the new passers! 

    The BIG QUESTION is: What now? 

    Ganun pa din ba ngayon tulad noon?  Kahit na walang patutunguhan basta’t me titulo at pasado sa board, OK na?  Malaking kasayangan kung ang ASSETS at RESOURCES na ito ay hindi mapakinabangan ng bansa.  Malaking aksaya ng pera’t panahon ng mga nakapasa sa board KUNG hindi magagamit ang pinag-ipunan nila ng lakas at talino at sa ibang trabaho sila mapapasok, tulad ng call center at OFW-DH.  Sana, may magawa kaagad ang pamahalaan para mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga bagong CPAs upang makatulong sa pagpapa-unlad ng kayamanan ng bayan.

    Congrats to all who passed. In my time, hardly 10% passes this difficult (probably the hardest) board exam.
