Six-Year Performance Trend in Customs Broker Licensure Examination of a State University in the Philippines


Objectives: To analyze the six-year performance trend of a Philippine state university in the Customs Broker Licensure Examination and compare this performance with those of other schools. Methods: It is a quantitative research; statistical tables and graphs were used in data presentation and analysis. Data were mined from the database of the government agency in-charge of professional examinations. The schools considered for comparison are the top ten performing customs administration schools in the Philippines for the period 2011-2016; six of which, including the subject school, are from South Luzon and Metro Manila and four are from other regions. Findings: The subject university’s performance in the Customs Broker Licensure Examination for the period 2011-2016 is considered very satisfactory with its annual passing percentage way above the national passing percentage by 50% to 160% higher. Said university is the best-performing customs administration school in its region and second overall in the country in terms of licensure examination performance in the past six years. However, the subject school has decreasing passing percentage and the difference between this and the national average is also decreasing. Its competitor schools in the region and nearby region had been performing better and catching up with its performance in the last two years. The gap between the passing percentage of the subject school and the country’s leading customs administration school increased while its margin over the other top performing schools decreased in the last year. Applications/Improvements: It is, therefore, necessary that the subject university should design strategic measures to further enhance its performances to hold the lead in the region and be the best-performing customs school in the Philippines.
