FindUniversity.ph conducted the first ranking of Philippine universities based on relevant, up-to-date, and measurable data. In their 2015 ranking of Philippine maritime schools, they based it on aggregated passing rates of each school in all maritime board exams that their graduates participated in.

The PRC has 6 different maritime board exams namely: OIC of a Navigational Watch, Officer-In-Charge of an Engineering Watch, Second Marine Engineer Officer, Chief Mate, Master Mariner, and Chief Marine Engineer Officer. FindUniversity.ph aggregated the results from those board exams, ranked each school in each board exam, and then aggregated the rankings for each school, to come up with a weighted board exams ranking for each school.
