Bar Exam Results 2014 (for October 2013) have just been announced at noon today, March 18, 2014, by Supreme Court Associate Justice and Bar chairman Arturo "AJ" Brion thru a presscon held at the Supreme Court of the Philippines.

According to Brion, there were 1,174 passers out of 5,293 examinees who took the October 2013 Bar Exam. That's 22.18%, an improvement from last year's Bar Exam which had only 17.76%.
