SC: Nearly 92% completed last day of 2022 Bar exams

The last day of the 2022 Bar examinations was attended by nearly 92% of all registered examinees, according to the Supreme Court.

The SC Public Information Office said 9,183 out of 10,006 bar examinees took and completed the tests on Sunday afternoon.

This translates to a 91.77% attendance rate, which is lower than 9,190 or 91.84% who attended the third day of this year’s bar exams.

During Sunday’s afternoon session, there were 823 absent applicants, with 304 of them recorded in the Ateneo de Manila testing center.

This was followed by the University of Cebu-Banilad in the Visayas with 82 examinees and Ateneo de Davao University in Mindanao with 75 examinees.

The SC had earlier said that examinees who will be unable to take the Bar exams due to Severe Tropical Storm Paeng may apply for a refund of their fees.

Meanwhile, a total of 9,184 out of 10,006 or 91.78% of applicants were present on Sunday morning, with the ADMU testing center recording the highest number of examinees with 2,225.

The Sunday exams covered Remedial Law I in the morning, Remedial Law II (with basic tax remedies) and Legal Ethics in the afternoon.

The first three days of the examinations were held last Nov. 9, Nov. 13, and Nov. 16.
