Wrap up

"It has been a test of my application to combine applications and online classes; it is also difficult to maintain self-confidence because there are thousands of students at the same time," Mendoza said of her experience in submitting applications.

She added that although it is difficult to be calm in applying, it is important to maintain faith and self-confidence throughout the process.

Serafica, on the other hand, encouraged active participation in extracurricular activities that can be helpful for those who also plan to try.

Applications can be submitted using the Common App, a website open to those seeking to study at various universities abroad.

Meanwhile, PSHS congratulates all the students from various PSHS campuses who have been given scholarships to advance their studies at various universities around the world.

DOST Fortunato de la Pena has also revealed that a student from PSHS - Cordilleran Campus has obtained the highest average score of all students from PSHS.

"The highest average was obtained by a student from Pisay Cordillera Administrative Region ( CAR ) Campus whose GWA is 1.03 from a grading system where 1.00 is the highest. A total of 49.55% of the graduates graduated with honors, one of the highest percentage of honor graduates in Pisay's history," de la Pena wrote in a post.
