About Bar Exams

The Philippine Bar examination is an annual licensure exam conducted by the Supreme Court of the Philippines through the SC’s Bar Exam Committee. This is the only licensure exam for professionals not regulated by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

November 2022 Bar exams are the 120th licensure exams for all aspiring lawyers.

Bar exams are dubbed the most challenging professional exams in the Philippines. From 2010 to 2019, only a 27% average passing rate was recorded. The difficulty in passing is mainly attributed to the growing volume of Philippine cases and statutory laws.

Meanwhile, the highest passing rate was recorded on Batch 2020-2021, having a 72.28% passing rate.

Candidates who have failed three times in the bar exam are not permitted to retake it unless they re-enroll, pass the regular fourth-year review classes, and attend a pre-bar review course in an approved school.

    Useless bar exam reforms from the SC. The release date of results is the same even if it was conducted digitally, regionalized, and with THREE EXAMINERS PER SUBJECT. How inefficient. What’s the purpose of reforms then.

  • Muslima Mar 22, 2023 @ 3:23

    I hope the results will cone out earlier.. on shaa Allah. Allah is good. The Almighty. Islam is the only religion. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the last messenger of Allah(swt). May all those who read this be guided. And read Qur’an or its English translation pls. To save yourself from Hellfire and earn Paradise. Ameen

      Yeah right. All religions claim that and yet religions have started major wars and have caused the death of millions. Tell that to the victims of religious zealots and bigots. Remember 9/11?
