Student Testimonial – Jerakim Luad

In the early days of the semester, it was hard to cope with my studies. I encountered different hindrances such as lack of resources and connectivity problems. However, temporary lang pala ‘yun. I got inspiration from my family, classmates, and friends. I am aware of the struggles of my fellow learners, especially when trying to exhaust means to study when there is no stable Wi-Fi available. I discovered NBSPI’s LMS to be friendly: the minimum requirement is for a smartphone to have access to an Internet browser. Puwede na ang mobile data o PISO-net. Modules are downloadable and can be answered offline. Tumutulong din ang school maghanap ng paraan for students na wala talagang phone. I know some classmates who had their modules printed instead.

As for me, an IS student, virtual learning makes me eager to learn more and to strive harder for me to pass all my subjects. I am also one of the AKLAT/ EDUKAR Scholarship recipients. The school administrators and personnel were also instrumental in securing my scholarship. Tinulungan nila ako to process my requirements seeing that I am qualified for the scholarship program. Isa rin ito sa nagustuhan ko sa NBSPI. The faculty and personnel are very approachable and helpful. There is a genuine concern for students’ welfare while encouraging us to excel academically.
