MANILA, PHILIPPINES — On Wednesday, August 24, the Supreme Court (SC) announced that the regionalized and online bar exams for 2022 will take place on November 9 (Wed), 13 (Sun), 16 (Wed), and 20 (Sun).
The Bar Examinations Committee’s chair, Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin S. Caguioa, stated that “unforeseen situations and eventualities” may need a change in the dates.
Caguioa stated that they would keep using Examplify, a secure exam delivery technology, following the SC’s transition to the digitization and the success of the 2020–2021 Bar exam, the first digital and local test for aspiring lawyers.
Examinees will use this program to utilize their own devices in a location of their choosing while being watched by live proctors and closed-circuit video cameras.
It is also recommended applicants often check their BAR PLUS-registered email and accounts for the list of applicants who have been conditionally and unconditionally accepted.
The Bar chair further stated that more guidelines for using Examplify and other questions, such as test venue selections, will be made known in a later bulletin.
The 2022 bar examinations will contain eight subjects and use a three-examiner policy, according to a previous bar bulletin from Caguioa.
The SC has made available its syllabi for civil and mercantile law, criminal law, political and international law, labor law, remedial law, and legal ethics.
Last August 15, the SC ended the application period for the 2022 Bar exams. –WhatALife!/Brix
