      1. Whoever dragged the name of

        PROFUGO, Lyra Carissa M.,

        I wish I could tell you that you were right in cursing her for making such comments. Unfortunately, she didn’t post any crap here. I suggest that you first verify whoever the hell you are mad with before accusing someone.

        An innocent barrister whose name was inadvertently got cussed out by a reckless man deserves peace if not apology.

        As for the person who’s confident enough to share her thoughts on how well she did on first Sunday, I hope your luck won’t wheel around.

        Passing the bar is not all about what you know and how you performed during the exams, you need prayers and luck too. I hope you all make it but before you do, don’t waste your precious time. Adding stress won’t do any help and mind you, you still have a long way ahead.

        Two more Sundays to go. Godspeed barristers!

      2. How dare you drag the name of my innocent friend who has done nothing to any of you! How sure are you that the “Carissa” who posted here is the same as my friend Lyra Carissa Profugo? As if she is the only “Carissa” who took the bar exams this year?!?!

      3. apparently upon checking shes the only “carissa” on the 2016 barlist. control f it.

        given the benefit the doubt that somebody else used her name, apologies are in order.

        will you blame me if i felt belittled merely because i wasn’t fortunate enough to graduate from ” prestigious” schools, law students and barristers from the province deserve respect in the same level with you guys from the metro.

      4. doti,

        mali na pinost mo ang pangalan ng isang tao kung wala ka namang matibay na patunay na siya nga nag post ng komento sa itaas

        at sino man ang admin ng site na toh, sana ni-regulate nyo ang pag post dito..

        wala kayong alam sa tindi ng mga emotions ng isang nag re review at mabasa niya ang name niya sa bagay na hindi niya ginawa..

        pare pareho tayong Pinoy at kung papalarin magkikita kita tayo sa proposeyong ating tinatahak..

        respeto nyo kay Miss Profugo na tahimik na nag rereview at tinutupad ang pangarap pero pinuputakti ngaun ng mga tanong kung siya nga ba nag post ng komentong yan..

  3. Be careful though. The facts in those case-based questions might ring bells for those familiar with the cases.. but there are those particular facts in some of the bar questions which raise issues different from the case (especially in Poli).

    It’s possible na u are tempted to just answer with the court’s ruling in that particular case pero ibang target answer sa particular issue pala ang hinahanap.. (except na lang siguro of course ung mga definite SC ruling such as meaning of “capital” etc, and what is what is na yan)

    The bar questions, while case-based, ultimately call for nothing but “one’s knowledge of basic principles..”, sabi nga sa guidelines. The examiner could possibly consider how u argue really, using the basics.

    Kaya sa mga kagaya natin na taga province who were at a disadvantage, diskarte na lang yan

  4. Carissa, masyado kang discriminating at mayabang. I am certain na d ka papasa with that attitude. U r not d examiner to conclude na pasok mga sagot mo. Stop judging provi skuls.

  5. Pag bar examinee ka, easy lang po. The day the result is out will be the time to say you are confident with your answers or the exam was easy.

    The bar exam is a one-on-one exam not only about your knowledge of the law but also a test of your character as in Matthew 22:14 “Many are invited but few are chosen”. It is an exam that both the examiner and God will check your performance. It is not an exam that will make you compare yourself with others. Your strategy might be applicable to you but not to her.

    Stay humble within yourself because the end of the bar exam is not on the 4th Sunday but on the day you will see your name in the list of passers.

  6. Ang bar exam ay parang basketball yan merun four quarters yan….ang larong basketball walang nanalo sa first quarter sa fourth quarter malalaman ang mananalo….ganyan din ang bar…first quarter pa lng yan di pa dapat mag celebrate…

  7. Wala nmang ngsasabi kung ano ang best na strategy. Point is, examinees who have no idea na ung mga cases na un ang lalabas should find a way to calm themselves. Marami talaga nagsasabi na madali lang exam, na nasa reviewer or lecture na ganito ganyan. Some might even bother, at this point in time, trying to get hold of reviewers or read cases thinking na lalabas dun mga possible questions.

    Kaya remedy na lang is just stick with what you know within the confines of what u’ve reviewed. Convince yourself that you’re on the right track, if only to maintain ur focus. Nanjan na e, exam period na.

    If sumabit man now then that’s it, confirmed na di talaga effective your strategy. Lessons learned. Try again next and strive to get better.

  8. Yung mga cases, hindi naman bago. Ung mga ginamit na arguments when they come up with the ruling, same lang din sa mga napag aralan na during law school. Basic answers for tricky questions. So don’t worry about it.

    Watch out for commercial, pwede rin may mga one or two cases jan. Grandfather rule, etc.

  9. Kapag second taker n like me, at sablay p din Ang strategy sa pag aaral, mapapatanung k n Lang Kay Lord Anu Po ba ang daan NA para sa akin? Pero dahil andito na lalaban pa din kahit minsan nawawalan na ng hope at puro fears na Lang nararamdaman. Kailangan maging mukhang matatag, lalo n sa harap ng mga taong sumusuporta at umasa na sana this time makuha na at maipasa na ang bar exam. Sakit sa puso. Pinakamahirap yung gnitong pakiramdam.???

    1. Laban lang. Ako nga pang 3rd ko na to. Tumigil pa ako ng 14 years. Yes, 14 years before i decided to take another chance. I bought new books and codals pa for the bar subjects. Sobrang hirap. My memory is already failing me, but im still here trying to be firm. Kaya, laban lang kapatid.

  10. Majority ng nagcocomment dito either law student or law graduate. Wag masyado mapagpatol sa mga comment na sa tingin niyo wala kwenta or yun tipong nang-aasar lang.

    Kaya nga anonymous name ginagamit nila kapag nagcocomment ng hindi maganda because its either hindi nila totoo name yun to mislead you or masira kayo sa focus.

    On the issue of bar exam, the important thing to remember is to identify the relevant from irrelevant issue. The presentation of answer in a logical, simple yet grammatically correct english. Kaya nga may suggested at alternative answer sa bar. Its a matter of presentation.

    3 more sundays, give your best and believe that you can make it. Relax and pray.
