Bar Exam Results 2012 (for November 2011): Ateneo grad topnotcher among 1,913 passers

The results for the Philippine Bar Exam held last November 6, 13, 20 and 27 at the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) have been released today, February 29, 2012, by the Supreme Court of the Philippines.

About 6 thousand (5,990) law graduates took the Philippine Bar Exam last November 2011, and 1,913 of them passed or equivalent to 31.94%.

If the 2010 Bar Exam resulted to a lowest passing percentage ever in the last 8 years, the 2011 Bar Exam meanwhile was the exact opposite, resulting to a highest passing percentage ever in the last 8 years and even in the last 10 years.


And just like in the last bar exam results, Ateneo de Manila University's School of Law rules again as two of its graduates took the #1 and #2 spots again on the latest list of Bar Exam Topnotchers or Top 10 passers.

  1. Walang UP sa top 10 2012 Bar Exam. Expected naman. Remember yong UP college of law stude na summa cum laude lumusung sa baha, sinisi mga tao, di daw sya in-inform. Mga bobo, lugi gobyerno.
