Congratulations to 1,310 examinees who passed the 2008 Bar Exams. The stress of waiting is over.

Congrats to Judy Lardizabal from San Sebastian College who garnered an average score of 85.70 percent. I know that all Lardizabals are related so am I am happy for my distant relative.

My husband wrote a series of interesting entries on the Philippine Bar Exam this year:

The 2008 Philippine bar exams composed of a record-breaking 6,533 examinees. Each examinee harbors in his or her heart the burning wish to be among the 20% or so who will make it or roughly 1 out of 5. While the arduous trek is done, the takers are in the unenviable position of not knowing whether they have arrived at their longed-for destination. The results will not be released until another 6-7 months and the agony of waiting is oftentimes more painful and distressing than knowing the news outright, whether it be good or bad.

Update: Results will be released on April 3. See News below from the Supreme Court.

Be updated for the List of the 2008 Philippine Bar results when it arrives:

    isnt it that the chief’s birthday would be on may11?
    that would be his retirement date right?
    does it follow that the bar results would be released near that birthdate, considering that the 2008 batch of examinees is the largest?

    • waitinggirl

      it’s confirmed. when u look at the Supreme Court Website, the results will be out April 3 (fri)

  • I hope you all make it. I know the tension of waiting. Though I did not take the bar exams, I saw my husband stressed out as he waited in 1990 (can’t remember the date now) for the bar results.

    I will try to get the bar results posted here in this page as soon as the Supreme Court releases it. It can be hard to access the Supreme Court site once the results are released.

    Good luck everyone

      Congrats to the 1300 lawyers.

      MANILA, Philippines – Some 1,300 law graduates passed the 2008 bar examinations, a source at the Supreme Court told the Philippine Daily Inquirer Friday.

      The figure is more than 20 percent of the 6,364 who took and finished the four-Sunday examinations in September last year.

      In the 2007 bar examinations, 1,289 out of 5,626 examinees passed for a passing percentage of 22.91 percent.

      The highest passing percentage since 2000 was the 31.61 percent posted in 2004.

      Formal announcement of the bar results is expected at 4 p.m. on Friday shortly after the committee on the bar examinations finishes “decoding” the answer sheets and matches them with the names of the examinees.

  • MSUan 2nd Bar Topnotcher

    Hurray to all MSUans! Mindanao State University soars high to heavens! Our very own Mylene Amerol-Macumbal placed second with only a margin of half of 1 percent in average score of the Top 1 Judy Lardizabal in the 2008 bar examinations whose results just came out Friday.
    Mylene got 85.65 percent, .05 percent lower of Judy’s 85.70 percent. In the legal circle, it already a tie. Mylene is, too, Top 1 junior of Judy. Congrats to the two of them, the creme de la creme of the 1,310 passers representing 20.58 percent of the 6,364 law graduates who took and finished the four-Sunday examinations in September last year.
    To the flunkers, better luck next time guys!
    Mylene might have taken the study rigors of that ex-campus nerd – now Ombudsman for Mindanao Humprey Monteroso who studied many of his law books under the grooves of the pine trees and bushes of the golf course in the campus on so cool, foggy early mornings. Don’t ask me I graduated MSU-Marawi in 1985. MSU is proud of you, Mylene, for reminding all and sundry that MSU remains to be the topnotch university of Mindanao.
