    I might add, however, that the curriculum of MBB has changed over the years. Most of the major subjects have been taken over by the MBB department. Dati advanced biology courses namin sa IB pa. I believe it's harder to earn higher grades if the exams are standardized and departmental. I also noted last tiem that there's no more Physics73, Chem154 and Math55 courses (??), which were usually the killers in that curriculum. In our time bihira ang summas, we had only 2 magnas and a couple of cum laudes. actually MBB per se is not that difficult, and the professors are very kind when it comes to grades. what made the course difficult was the amount of biology, chemistry, math and physics courses we had to go through before we could take on MBB majors. The rest was relatively easier.

    It is this and/or there are more bright students taking up MBB.

    ^ i'm not belittling those who graduated with honors, i'm just saying that MBB has been a bit easier with the curriculum change. bio11 and 12 are basic courses, it's not that hard to get 1's there. chem 153/154 is physical chemistry, which i think is a must in molecular biology, physics 73 is fun and math55 is exciting. ;D math17 is harcore?? haha

    bakit ka affected? mbb ka ba?

    don't be so proud. i've heard that humility is a prerequisite to genius. on a side note i don't think MBB is that much different to biology in terms of "difficulty" and many biology professors are terror teachers in the traditional sense of the word. in my experience i've gotten lower grades in advanced biology courses than in mbb courses. mbb professors are kinder imho.
