543 examinees backed out on first day of Bar exam
Of the 8,701 examinees who were originally approved to take the 2018 Bar examinations, only 8,158 showed up on the first day of the test at the University of Sto. Tomas in Manila last Sunday.
With this means that 543 examinees backed out for whatever reasons.
“Per Bar Confidant Office, 8,158 took the Bar last Sunday,” Atty. Ma. Victoria Gleoresty Guerra, chief of the Supreme Court Public Information Office, said as she cited data from the Office of the Bar Confidant.
