topnotcher? hard work pays but you also have to be real smart. I'm busting' my ass out in law school and my prof said I will pass the bar but he doesn't think I can be a topnotcher while a classmate of mine seems to be taking it easy (but of course he studies) everything seems so easy with him and he manages to get high scores........sometimes a man must know his limits.....

Hey the bar exam is not necessarily the same with the exams in law school. So even if you are not considered as one of the "pambato" of your school, there is a chance to you will top the bar.

that being said, I must emphasize that preparation for the bar does not commence during bar review but during your 4 or 5 years in law school.

The best advice I could give is to master the basics. As the bar approaches, there is a tendency for law students to worry about the "crazy" questions that always find its way to the bar exams. But then again, these crazy questions are fewer compared to the questions that deal with the basics. Moreover, there is a big chance that the examiner will be asked to give generous bonus points for these crazy questions.

Master the basics. Master the codal/law and be familiar with jurisprudence. Don't waste too much time reading too many commentaries. One simple commentary per subject is enough.
If you know the law by heart (meaning you know when it is applicable and what are the exceptions under the law or jurisprudence), then you can come out with an intelligent answer to almost all bar questions.

Hope the foregoing is helpful.

thank you po for this very useful advice. Does one's law school count in becoming a topnotcher? How about us enrolled in the provincial schools, do we have a chance?

I believe so. University of the Cordilleras alreay produced two bar topnotchers (one in 1998 and another in2006)...

Faith in God and prayers are the only keys. Of course, you have to share your part by reviewing/studying to the fullest.[b]
