The Supreme Court (SC) of the Philippines announced that 1,913 out of 5,990 or 31.94% passed the bar exams that were given during the four Sundays of November 2011 at the University of Santo Tomas (UST).
It is the 2nd highest passing rate this millenium next to the 32.89% rate in 2001. The highest passing percentage of all time was in 1954 at 75.17% and the lowest was in 1999 at 16.59%.
The complete list of bar passers will be released tomorrow, February 29, 2012 at 2PM as the results are still being audited.
Last year’s examinations witnessed the first time it was held in November instead of September, UST instead of DLSU as its venue, and the introduction of the multiple choice type of questions.
We will also be posting the results tomorrow via a PDF file so stay tuned. Please like, share, or tweet this post. Thanks!
