Topping the 2017 Medical Licensure exam is the son of a tricycle driver who is also suffering from a cataract.

Karl Emmanueal Cueva Mercader from the University of Perpetual Help System Dalta-Las Pinas emerged as top from a total of 813 passers.  Mercader got 88.58 percent.

During a press conference at his alma mater, Karl said that he literally went through the eye of a needle just to finish his course in Medicine. Medicine is considered as one of the longest and most expensive courses in the country.
