Due to the pandemic, Duterte led the graduation rites through video communications application Zoom. He also told the graduates to celebrate despite the current situation the country is facing due to the pandemic.

I suppose that all of you are imbued with these values. Duterte also reminded graduates that people would keep an eye on them as they become part of the state forces. I share your exhilaration.

The procedures and traditions surrounding academic graduation ceremonies differ around the world. In India the graduation ceremony is commonly known as convocation. At the universities and institutes, the graduation ceremonies are formal affairs, which include an academic procession by both the academic heads and the students. The students usually get dressed up in a formal attire, wear a form of academic dress - usually a gown that is worn open in the front, sometimes accompanied by a square hat. They will have a procession of the academic staff and graduands, a valediction and then they are handed the certificates by the chief guest.
