Schedule (click each subject for the syllabus):


  1. Let’s pray that the examiners will be lenient in checking the exam. The exam was too long particularly Commercial. Nakatulala lang ako nung nag ring na para sa last 5minutes, wala ng pumasok na information sa utak ko I was answering the questions about copyright and trademark. D ko tuloy na analyze masyado ung tinatatanong. In addition, the characters in the problem have the same letters..huhuu

  2. Mercantile was very challenging for me too. Those loooong facts, confusing names, and sub questions made me cry after the exam. Exhausting talaga yung Merc.

  3. I thought Civil was okay but when I tried to read again the question, that was hard and tricky.
    May the examiners this year bar exams’ would be kind enough in considering our answers. Let’s continue to pray for the best.

  4. Indeed. All subjects were extremely difficult. Even the noted lecturers who are considered experts on their field were not able to forecast the questions as cited by Judge Campanilla in his FB post. The 2018 Bar exams was special. In fact the chairman instructed the examiners to craft questions not patterned from the previous bar exams. Decided cases were intertwined in one problem i.e the case of Cagandahan and Silverio in Civil Law. The case of PP vs. Luz mixed with PP. vs Dela Cruz in POli and a lot more.

    Let us pray for the best. To God be the Glory.

    1. Malawak ang scope ng exams but it is within the syllabus namn…talagang tricky ang mga questions. It might appear that it is leaning towards one principle but it turns out na hinde nmn applicable.

      1. Yes I agree.

        Assoc. Justice del Castillo was consistent with his statement when he visited our examination rooms and it drew cheers.

        ” I will tell the examiners to be lenient in checking your booklets, in case of doubt it will be resolved in your favor”

        Can you share the statements of Justice MDC when he visited your rooms?#hopeful#worthtobeshared

  5. I can attest to that. During the 3rd Sunday,on or about 7 :45 am, the Chairman went to our room accompanied by Theodore Te and he said na he instructed the examiners to be considerate because he wants to have a higher passing rate for 2018.

      1. Sana. This is not official. Be that as it may, Let’s pray for the examiners that they will be kind and merciful in checking our exam booklets. To God be the glory.

  6. One, two, one, two, three, four
    Shed a tear ’cause I’m missin’ you
    I’m still alright to smile
    Girl, I think about you every day now
    Was a time when I wasn’t sure
    But you set my mind at ease
    There is no doubt you’re in my heart now
    Said woman take it slow, and it’ll work itself out fine
    All we need is just a little patience
    Said sugar make it slow and we’ll come together fine
    All we need is just a little patience (Patience)
    Mm, yeah
    I sit here on the stairs
    ‘Cause I’d rather be alone
    If I can’t have you right now, I’ll wait dear
    Sometimes I get so tense but I can’t speed up the time
    But you know love there’s one more thing to consider
    Said woman take it slow and things will be just fine
    You and I’ll just use a little patience
    Said sugar take the time ’cause the lights are shining bright
    You and I’ve got what it takes to make it
    We won’t fake it, I’ll never break it
    ‘Cause I can’t take it
    Little patience, mm yeah, mm yeah
    Need a little patience, yeah
    Just a little patience, yeah
    Some more patience, yeah (I’ve been walking the streets at night, just trying to get it right)
    A little patience, yeah (Its hard to see with so many around
    You know I don’t like being stuck in the crowd)
    Could use some patience, yeah (And the streets don’t change but maybe the names)
    (I ain’t got time for the game ’cause I need you)
    Gotta have more patience, yeah (Yeah, yeah but I need you)
    All need some patience (Ooh I need you, whoa I need you)
    Just a little patience is all you need (Ooh, this time, ah)

  7. Make me a channel of your peace.
    Where there is hatred let me bring your love;
    Where there is injury your pardon, Lord;
    And where there’s doubt true faith in you.

    Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
    So much to be consoled as to console;
    To be understood as to understand;
    To be loved as to love with all my soul.

    Make me a channel of your peace.
    Where there’s despair in life let me bring hope;
    Where there is darkness, only light;
    And where there’s sadness, ever joy.


    Make me a channel of your peace.
    It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
    In giving to all men that we receive;
    And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.
