1863

Davao City — The first batch of JMarian barristers passed the first-ever digitized and localized 2020/21 BAR exams. Out of the 26 takers, 4 are declared exemplary passers: Jeremiah Caballero, Jayson Camasura, Jonah Presto, and Jhon Dave Macatol.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, released the results of the 2020-21 Bar Examinations. SC Associate Justice Marvic Leonen, the chairperson of the exams, reported 8,241 out of 11,402 examinees passed, part of which are the 26 JMCFI barristers. This is equivalent to a passing rate of 72.28 percent, which is higher than 2019’s 27.36 percent, he said.

JMCFI – College of Law is hailed as the no. 1 out of 61 law schools in the Philippines with 11-50 candidates for first-time takers; no. 4 out of 25 law schools in the Philippines for having an exemplary performance for schools with 11-50 candidates.

The latest exams happened after almost two years of waiting due to the global health crisis.

Unlike in previous batches, there was no traditional announcement of the top 10 passers. Instead, the Supreme Court recognized Bar examinees with “exemplary performance,” or those who got an average grade of 85 percent or higher.

Law schools were also ranked based on two levels: the percentage of passers and based on the number of examinees with exemplary performances.

This is the quickest turnaround for the checking of the Bar so far, just a little over 2 months since the exams concluded.

This was also the first time that the Supreme Court shifted from a handwritten exam in one testing center to a digitalized format using dedicated software in 31 testing sites across the country.

The oath-taking of the successful Bar examinees is scheduled for May 2, 2022.
