“I never thought that I would top the bar. It was a shock. It was surprising. I tried my best during the exam, but the result still came as a surprise,” Miranda reportedly said.
Meanwhile, it is indeed purely coincidental that the topnotchers are Miranda and Plaza, which when combined becomes Plaza Miranda, a public square regarded as the center of Philippine political discourse prior to the imposition of martial law in 1972 (Wikipedia).
