The SC did not release the number of law graduates who applied and have been admitted to take the 2022 online Bar examinations.
Nonetheless, the SC reminded the examinees “to monitor their Bar PLUS dashboard to view their final LTCs.” It said that “all venue assignments are final and requests for changes of venue at this point will no longer be entertained.”
At the same time, the SC reminded that Oct. 21, 2022 is the deadline for registering and installing Examplify on the laptop the examinees will use, and taking of the Sample Examinations 1 and 2.
“By said date, examinees are advised that they must have already installed Examplify on their laptops and must have uploaded answer files for both Sample Examinations 1 and 2. Those who fail to comply risk the deactivation of their Examplify accounts,” the SC said.
“Examinees are strongly encouraged to download and install Examplify, and take both Sample Examinations on the same laptop that they will be using for the 2022 Bar Examinations. These measures are necessary to ensure that the laptops examinees will use to take the Bar
Examinations meet the minimum system requirements for Examplify to properly operate. By complying with these requirements, examinees can expect Examplify to run seamlessly, or without major technical issues or concerns,” the Bar bulletin said.
It also said that additional information needed by examinees may be sourced thru:
