Bar Exam Results & Topnotchers 2011 (for September 2010) released!

The Philippine Bar Exam Results for September 2010 have been released just today, March 17, 2011, by the Supreme Court of the Philippines thru LCD monitors installed at the Supreme Court front yard and also on its official website.

The said bar exam, which is a professional licensure examination for lawyers, took place in September 5, 12, 19 and 26, 2010, with a total of 4,847 examinees, the least number of examinees in the last 8 years.

And it also resulted to a lowest passing percentage ever during the last 8 years.

Only 982 of the 4,847 examinees passed the exam. That's 20.26%!

The first two topnotchers in the 2010 Bar Exams both came from Ateneo de Manila University. On top is Cesario Antonio Singzon Jr with 89% followed by Filemon Ray Javier with 86.95%.

Singzon is now the 20th first placer from Ateneo de Manila Law School and his 89% grade ranks him 71st among the 98 first-placers from 1919 to 2010. He ranks higher than former Executive Secretary Ronaldo Zamora (86th, 87.3%) and 2010 Presidential Candidate Gibo Teodoro (93rd, 86.185%)

All the Top 5 are actually "Atenista". The 3rd placer Paolo Carlo Tolentino (cousin of my college friend / batchmate Jenny Vie Hobayan) graduated from Ateneo De Naga University, high school and college, but he obtained his Law degree from the Arellano University School of Law (AUSL).

9th placer William Benson Gan was also among the topnotchers (6th placer) in May 2006 CPA Board Exam. Such a genius!
