Bar Passers 2022


The complete results of the 2022 bar exam are out online on Friday, April 14 after the special en banc session.

Caguioa previously said that bar exam results will most likely be released in the last week of April 2023. This was mentioned by Caguioa during his lecture as shared by former Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute Technology (MSU-IIT) law dean Alizedney Ditucalan.


The November 2022 Bar Examinations covered the following core bar subjects and their respective weights:

1. Political and International Law (with related tax principles) – 15%

2. Labor Law – 10%

3. Criminal Law (and practical exercises) – 15%

4. Commercial Law – 10%

5. Civil Law I – 15%

6. Civil Law II (and practical exercises) – 10%

7. Remedial Law I – 15%

8. Remedial Law II (with basic tax remedies) and Legal Ethics – 10%


Bar taker will have to earn at least 75% as total weighted score to pass. This score is the product of Bar subject’s relative weight and raw score as a percentage of the maximum possible score.

While a bar examinee is “deemed to have passed his examinations successfully if he/she has obtained a general average of 75%,” the SC en banc has the discretion whether to make adjustments, as it did in the previous Bar Examinations to lower the bar exam passing percentage.

Note: In the 2019 bar exam, passing percentage was lowered from 75% to 74%.
