MANILA, Feb 19 (Mabuhay) – The much-awaited results of the October 2012 Bar Exams will be released before the Holy Week in March.
This was announced by the Supreme Court Public Information Office in a text message to reporters on Tuesday.
“As per Justice Martin Villarama, chair of the 2012 Bar exams, barring unforseen circumstances, results will be out before Holy Week,” said the SC PIO.
More than 5,000 law school graduates took the Bar exams during the four Saturdays of October at the University of Santo Tomas along España Boulevard in Manila.
The number of examinees last October was lower than in 2011, in which 6,200 law school graduates took the exam.
It was the second time that the exams was held at UST, where security had been tightened since the grenade attack during the Bar exams in 2010 when it was still held at the De La Salle University along Taft Avenue. (MNS)
