J. M.
◈ Studied BS in Accounting Technology
◈ At Saint Louis College - City of San Fernando
◈ Graduated 2015

list bulletWhy did I choose Accounting Technology: I actually enrolled BS-accountancy, but changed to BS in Accounting Technology after I failed.

list bulletAbout my college education: On my first years in college, I actually enrolled BS-accountancy. first years of being an accountancy student goes well with my major basic accounting and partnership and corporation accounting, until such time financial accounting came in, that was our first screening subject and the screening grade must not below 78 to be able to qualify for the next sem. Back then I was not used to the hardship that an accountancy student must go through to be able to pass the screening grade because I admit that I am used to spoon feeding when I am in high school and first years of being an accountancy student. It was totally different and it was really hard for me to adopt a new way of studying. Our professor didn't teach rather encourages self study, our mode of class discussion in our room was through reporting and what she only does is like a facilitator. So to cut the story short, I failed the subject and resorted to accounting technology. I graduated last years sy 2014-2015.

Accounting is fun, it made me think critically. There is a lot of things to know specifically on business environment that you cannot learn from other courses. Accounting is challenging, it is hard to master the accounting treatment regarding topics because it is quite broader more than you think of those 10 letters that compose ACCOUNTING. If you are able to master this subject, you really deserve an award or self reward because it is really a great achievement

list bulletMy current job: I'm now taking BS Accountancy hoping to become an accountant.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Be patience and you really must love books.
