BAR 2019 & 2020: VERY REASONABLE EXAMINATION

The chairs of 2019 Bar exam, Associate Justice Bernabe and 2020 Bar exams, Associate Justice Marvic Leonen, assured a very reasonable examination.

In a statement of Chairperson Bernabe during the Legal Education Summit,
The usual wide scope of the Bar examinations allowed too much unpredictability that tended to throw the examinees off balance.
I have earlier intimated, the bar exams should not be made intentionally difficult for extraneous reasons. Institutional measures should be set to ensure that the Bar remains true to its purpose as the licensure exam for the legal profession. It should be a fair test of the candidate’s aptitude and readiness for actual legal practice.
Chairperson Leonen added, to quote,
It will be very reasonable. Any intelligent, coherent justice will want the Bar to simply be a qualifying exam. It is not an exam to find out the most brilliant of lawyers. It is only an exam to add into our ranks those lawyers that deserve to practice.
BAR EXAM 2019 RELEASE OF RESULTS

As referred to previous years lawyers' licensure exams, Bar exam 2019 results are expected to be released by Supreme Court in more or less five months (April - May 2020) after the exams.

Teacher in Heaven - LET Passer passed away a day after the release of results

It took four months of review for the board exam and three months of waiting for the results for Ms. Jessa Ganigan to only celebrate just a day of her success. On December 1, 2019 the LET results came out and Ms. Jessa Ganigan is one of the successful passers of LET September 2019, but on the following day her parents regretfully informed everyone through a Facebook post that their daughter have passed away.

Jessa Bustinera Ganigan is described by her parents as an epitome of perseverance, because her kidney failure condition and poverty did not stop her from reaching her dreams to become a licensed teacher.

Ms. Ganigan is a resident of La Union Province from where she was born and raised. She is the eldest daughter among the three children of Mr. Angelo Ganigan a farmer and Mrs. Melody Ganigan a housewife. Her parents did not surrender in life especially for the education of their eldest daughter. Ms. Jessa was first admitted to the hospital back in June, 2018.

Since then, she had been undergoing blood tests, ultrasound and she was even admitted in intensive care unit. Despite of the challenges, she was able to finish her baccalaureate degree.

During her LET review, her parents did not fully support the idea of her travelling regularly just to attend review sessions because Jessa is under hospital treatment and dialysis every week; nevertheless, she never failed in attending every review class, because of her strong conviction that she will get that license.
In her dying breath, she expressed her gratitude to CBRC, from which she attended review for LET, for boosting her motivation to ace the board exam.

Jessa plans to undergo kidney transplant after passing the board exam, unfortunately her body grew tired and weak due to chronic renal failure stage 5. “Her body may have given up but her spirit fought until the end” as her parents narrated her final testimony.



To Ma’am Jessa B. Ganigan, as we pray for your eternal repose, we will continue celebrate your success from here to heaven.

Stage 4 Cancer Patient, now a Licensed Professional Teacher (LPT)

Every cancer patient has a story, they may share common fears, nightmares, and doubts but no two journeys are the same. “Gusto ko pong sabihin sa lahat ng tao na kahit ano man ang sitwasyon nyo sa buhay, mahirap man, may kapansanan o maysakit/may cancer. Wag po kayong susuko sa buhay. Patuloy lang po kayong mangarap at kumilos. Magtiwala lang po kayo sa inyong sarili at sa Diyos. September 29 kami nag Board Exam kasabay ng Birthday ko at ngayon dumating yung Gift ni Lord sakin.”

These were the words uttered by Jessa Marie S. Malate, a newly passed Licensed Professional Teacher as she made her way through the Licensure Examination for Teachers held September 29, 2019.

Malate was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2008 when she was in first year high school.

She felt devastated as she thought that her life was about to come to an end. She was doomed and couldn’t bear the reality of how she got sick. She used to very active in school and joined numerous extracurricular activities. Due to her diagnosis all these activities have brought to a halt. She also stopped going to school for a year to concentrate in her treatment and promote healing.

Malate has undergone cancer treatment including chemotherapies and surgeries. She went through multiple needle punctures and debilitating signs and symptoms of the disease such as weight loss, and severe nausea and vomiting before she was cleared for discharge. On the other hand, she resumed joining school activities and graduated high school with Honors. Malate remained symptom-free and lived a normally healthy life until 2014 when she was struck by another horror. She woke up one morning with severe stomach pains and paralysis, she was rushed to the hospital and her laboratory and diagnostic work-ups revealed that her cancer has relapsed and has metastasized to the liver.

“5 years ago nung sinabi ng Doctor ‘Pwede nyo na pong ilabas sa Hospital si Jessa, dahil walang Doctor ang mag oopera dyan dahil bilang na araw nyan mamatay yan! Wala na kaming magagawa!’” Ang sabi ko sa sarili ko noon Kung wala silang magagawa, Ako meron!”

Doctors were afraid that there would be no available treatment for her as her cancer has progressed to its final stage. Malate was dazed of how she was going to continue and pursue her dreams. She didn’t want her life to end. She knew that she has a purpose in this world and giving up is not a part of it.

Despite her condition, she refused to give up. Through her faith in God, she found a naturopathic doctor who utilizes alternative medicine for her cancer treatment. She gradually regained her strength and went back to school. She then graduated Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in Southern Luzon State University in Polilo Quezon.

“Hanggang ngayon po may cancer parin ako at patuloy na naniniwalang gagaling pa ako at maraming makakatulong sakin despite of my situation. Hindi ako nagpatinag, hindi sumuko, patuloy na lumaban, nagtiwala sa Diyos at nangarap at tinutupad ang pangarap kahit may Cancer at ngayon ay isang ganap ng Teacher. Malaking tulong sa akin ang Carl Balita Review Center dahil marami po akong natutunan. Nainspire din po ako lalo sa mga lecturers. Sinabi ko po sa sarili na sana maging katulad din nila ako na maging magaling na lecturer at makainspire pa ng maraming tao. Kaya po nagreview ako ng mabuti at nagtiwala ng buong puso”



Cancer can take away our physical abilities but it can never touch our mind and soul. Cancer can be debilitating and frustrating but with faith in God, compliance to the treatment, and self-love,  miracles can happen.
