While no one landed in top 10, the University has been posting a 100% passing rate since 2016. The last to occupy first place among the passers was John Martin Cirio in 2022.

UPD also ranked first among the three top-performing schools, the only one of them to have a 100% passing rate. An institution must have fielded five or more examinees and gained at least an 80% passing rate to qualify as a top-performing school.

According to the Professional Regulation Commission, 242 of 351 examinees passed the examination that was held in the National Capital Region, Baguio, Butuan, Cebu, Davao, and Legazpi.
