Update: The list of top 20 schools which was depicted on the photo is fake as Norman de Guzman, OIC of PRC’s Public Information and Media Relations Department denied that they have released such result. Thanks to reynthology.blogspot.com for letting me know about this. I want to apologize to the readers of this blog for the misleading information that this post has imparted to all of you.
