MANILA, Philippines — The Supreme Court (SC) is set to release the results of the 2017 Bar examinations before the end of this month.

At least two insiders in the High Court bared that the justices have set a special session in the last week of April for the Bar results.

A total of 6,750 law graduates took the grueling Bar exams in November last year at the University of Sto. Tomas, facilitated by the high court’s committee on the 2017 Bar exams chaired by Associate Justice  Lucas Bersamin.

In the 2016 Bar exams, a total of 3,747 law graduates passed or 59.06 percent of the total of 6,344 takers who completed the exams. It was the second highest passing rate in the history of Bar exams since 1954, when the passing rate was 75.17 percent.
