2022 BAR EXAM RESULTS — The Supreme Court has announced the release date of the 2022 Bar examination results.
ABS-CBN News reported that the Supreme Court announced on Tuesday that the results of the 2022 Bar exams will be released on April 12, 2022.
In a press briefer, the Supreme Court Public Information Office (SCPIO) said that 2020/21 Bar Examinations Chairperson Justice Marvic Leonen asked for a special en banc session on April 12 “for the purpose of considering his report on the first-ever digitalized and regionalized Bar Examinations and the release of its results.”
“Release is on April 12 once the results, as per the report of the Bar Chair, are approved by the Court En Banc,” SC spokesperson Brian Keith Hosaka clarified.
The 2022 Bar Exam results are usually announced after it is approved by Supreme Court magistrates.
A total of 11,378 Bar examinees took the Bar exams last February 4 and 6, after a two-year postponement because of the coronavirus pandemic. This figure is equal to 96.5% of the 11,790 law graduates who applied to take the Bar exams and is the highest number of Bar examinees so far.
“The oath-taking of the successful Bar examinees is scheduled on May 2, 2022,” the SCPIO said. “The venue, time, and other details of the oath-taking shall be announced later.”
So far, this is the quickest turnaround for checking of the Bar, just a little over 2 months since the Bar exams concluded, and also the first time that the Supreme Court shifted from handwritten examination in one testing center to a digitalized format using a dedicated software in 31 testing sites across the country.
In light of COVID-19 restrictions, the Supreme Court opted for a 2-day exam spaced one day apart instead of the traditional 4-day exam on Sundays.
