Xavier University will have 240 slots while Mindanao State University- Iligan Institute of Technology will have 250 slots open for applicants who will take the Bar Exam this November 2021.
The Office of the Bar Chairperson made the announcement of 24 testing sites nationwide to reduce the examinees’ travel and accommodation expenses, as well as minimize their transit to comply with public health guidelines in view of the pandemic. Examinees will have to select their local testing center through the Bar PLUS (Personal Login Unified System). To make the Bar Examinations more inclusive to all examinees, venue-matching will not be on a first-come, first-served basis. Instead, applicants from remote areas will be prioritized. Locations within the Philippines will be ranked from the least to the most remote, and the Bar PLUS will first process the choices of the applicants from the most remote locations.
Applicants may select their chosen local testing centers only after their applications have been approved by the Supreme Court En Banc.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court encouraged all examinees to be fully vaccinated before November. Read BAR Bulletin No. 22, series of 2021 below.
