    This was announced last year by Associate Justice Marvic Leonen, 2020/2021 Bar chairperson, saying "everyone is now a bar bet."

    In the past, only the list of successful bar passers and topnotchers were released by the high court.


    In addition, instead of announcing bar topnotchers, the Supreme Court will recognize examinees who recorded “exemplary performance” in the licensure test.

    Leonen said this is in consideration of the different circumstances that two batches of examinees went through amid a pandemic.

    The Supreme Court will release the list of bar exam passers after the special en banc session on Tuesday, April 12.

    A total of 11,402 examinees completed the bar exam on February 4 and 6 in 31 testing sites scattered in 22 local government units across the country. This was after several postponements in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic.
