A friend messaged me a day before this supposedly new bar exam format broke out. According to her,one of her friends from PLS told her that their dean informed them (graduates) of the new bar exam format, date and venue. The dean told them that the said format and venue was already approved and that the SC Resolution will be released on "April 16". However, the exam date is yet to be approved. -just sharing-

there is yet no official statement from the Supreme Court. let's just wait and see.
