  3. what i learned about the bar is you should read the mind of the examiner. Spotting the issue is the paramount concern. Dapat pareho kau na iniisip ng examiner kahit na mali ung sagot mo kung nakuha mo ung gusto nya itanung malamang bibigyan ka ng mataas na score. Madami na din aq narinig from personal experience na basta alam tinutukoy or pareho kau ng wave length ng examiner matutuwa xa.

  6. Hoping and praying to make it. I worked hard for it with passion and dedication from law school to the bar proper. After tye fourth sunday, I was so happy and thankful that I was able to finish it. I was so happy at that point not because I knew that I will pass the exams but because I knew I was able to give my very best. I will accept whatever may be the result because it will just show whether my best is good enough or not to become member of the legal profession. Good luck to all and may God bless us all!
