Unfortunately, I got a grade of 74.09 but i'm quite satisfied with what i got kahit bagsak ako kasi konti na lang papasa na ako. Then last 2011 I took the exams again which was an MCQ type and i got a grade lower than what i got in 2008. Mas nahirapan ako sa MCQ. Siguro depende yan sa tao eh.
redpula wrote:essay or mcq what matters is that there must be consistency to the examination, it seems like the supreme court justices constantly configure the passing rate without much consideration that a single tweak in its percentage will definitely alter the review pattern of the examinees. Also, isn't it that the mcq was to "modernize" the bar examination, against establish and valid concern of not reading the entire answer of an examinee due to his/her unreadable penmanship, that there is no other alternative answer, supposedly this is to measure whether he/she knows the answer or not, it is not the fault of the examinees if an examiner is not adapt to test construction, the supreme court can only blame itself for that, there must be a committee for this kind of exam, and they cling dearly to the old fashion method of a single examiner per bar subject, again, they are changing the exam every year. They should consider that there is no such thing as constantly being turned in a genie pig, names has faces and failing the exam were already been inculcated since the very first year in the college of law. Calling CJ Serreno, let not your 18 years in the supreme court come to past without looking into this yearly exercise of wait and see attitude dictated by the chairman of the bar exam committee, please be consistent as to the real bar exam structure. As we law students rely primarily on our perseverance and hardwork to pass the ever changing bar examination.

Justice Brion's plan is to have 20% MCQ only and 80% Essay. Looks like every year ay iba ang format, trip trip ng chairman?
