[The original post] We noticed a few comments/discussions regarding the 2011 bar exam posted in entries relating to the 2010 and previous bar examinations. Let’s centralize all discussions on the 2011 bar exams in this post — bar examiners, guidelines, tips, suggestions, bar questions, answers and, ultimately, the bar results. This post will be expanded and updated from time to time. Fee free to share your news and tips with everyone. Good luck and God bless to the 2011 bar examinees.
Added (5 February 2012): When is the release date of the 2011 bar exam result? Some say it’s February 8. Some say, well, some other dates (Macario made a list of the potential release dates). Re-posting what I wrote in the comments below:
To all, good luck and God bless. Allow me to share some notes based on the previous bar exam threads:
1. Tempers flare with more frequency and more intensity as the “judgment day” draws nearer. It sounds sick, but it’s a way to determine that the release date is imminent.
2. There will be lots of release dates thrown around. Some will quote “well-placed” sources. Many tend to disregard “unassuming” sources, and these sources will turn out to be the most informed. Separating the chaff from the grain is difficult and frustrating for many. There are so many things that could affect the “final” date of the release. Nevertheless, as someone previously noted, the dates will slowly dovetail as the “true” release date becomes more certain.
3. The agony of waiting for the bar exam result is a rite of passage. Many would make insensitive comments because they haven’t experienced it. On the other hand, many who’ve gone through it, victorious or not, deliberately make the experience more intense. Again, it’s sick, but it’s fun. In what other country do you have this? Truly, it’s more fun in the Philippines.
So, sit back and try to relax.
