The Supreme Court has announced that 1,913 (31.9%) of 5,990 examinees passed the 2011 Bar exams, the 2nd highest passing rate this millennium.
The highest was in 2001 with a 32.89% passing rate.
The lowest was in 2002 with only 19.68%.
Court spokesman Jose Midas Marquez said: “The large part of that can be explained by the reforms undertaken in the 2011 Bar Exams.”
Marquez said the results are being audited manually and will be announced at 2 p.m. tomorrow, Wednesday.
