2014 CMA QUIZ BOWL RESULTS

Insights - Quiz Bowl Scores - FinalAfter two weeks of carefully checking the answer sheets we have now finalized the list of top performers who are eligible to receive the contest prizes which include CMA Program scholarship for the top two slots for each category and student memberships to the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).

Scoring on the essay section was tough because a vast majority of the participants’ handwriting were found to be, literally, “sketchy”. Partial credits were given to incorrect answers which showed computations that somehow demonstrated knowledge on the topic tested in the essay, i.e. Activity-Based Costing a.k.a. ABC.

There were some participants who fared very well in the essay and overtook candidates who scored way ahead in the multiple-choice questions (MCQ) section but poorly in the essay. Equally so, a handful of participants scored very well in the MCQ part but obviously did not put any effort to provide decent answers to the essay questions. Essay answers were scored for clarity, logical presentation of response, and proper application of the ABC concept to the case under consideration.

University of the Cordilleras stalwart, Ms. Judy Bayawa, topped the BSA category, nosing out second-placer Ms. Janelle Quezada from De La Salle University-Dasmarinas by a very slim margin.

No. 1 Ms. Anna Dorothea Reyes and No. 2 Mr. Dan Joseph Sorilla, both from De La Salle University-Dasmarinas, topped the non-BSA category, besting a field of 36 other hopefuls from Cavite, Cabanatuan and Baguio.

Two 4th year BSA students, Ms. Stephanie Solomon from the University of Baguio, and Mr. Hero Salcedo of the Colegio de Dagupan, are being recognized in this event and will be awarded medals and modest cash prizes for showing up strong in the BSA category.

In the college professors category, veteran CPA reviewer and UB Dept. Head Mr. Rhad Vic Estoque capped a stellar performance by consistently showing the way in both the MCQ and essay sections. Ms. Jasmin May Baniaga, Accountancy Dept Head of the University of the Cordilleras, came in second by banking on a fantastic run on the essay, while Ms. Krystal Jane Ortega of the Lyceum of the Philippines University-Cavite is not to be denied recognition for tallying a very close third.

Here are the names of the top performers over a field of 190 students from the two main categories, given in alphabetical order.

Based on the final tally we believe that given the ample time to prepare for the quiz contest at least more than 50% of the participants would have earned above “360”, the scaled score required to pass the CMA examinations.

The list of names who participated in the Quiz Bowl will now be submitted to IMA for the issuance of Certificates of Participation.
