He said the rule was lifted after the SC en banc adopted a recommendation by a study group to lift the five-strike policy starting on the bar exams in 2014.
The five-strike rule states that one cannot take the bar exams for more than five times.
“The five-strike rule says if you fail it three times, before you can take it for the fourth time, you have to comply with certain conditions. And if you fail it for the fourth time, take it for the fifth time, you have to comply with certain conditions. Beyond that, hindi ka na pwedeng kumuha. Now that is lifted,” Te explained.
He said the lifting of the rule cannot be applied to this year’s examination as the list of probable bar candidates has already been published.
