The results of the 2007 Bar Examinations were released last March 29, Saturday, and as soon as the word got out, the supreme Court webpage got clogged with browsers who were downloading the list of the successful examinees. According to the official press release, 1289 examinees passed the exams – out of 5,626 examinees. That gives 22.91% national passing rate.
The first and third placers are from Ateneo de Manila University, while the second placer is from the University of the Philippines-Diliman – which has two other passers (# 7 and 10) in the Top 10. No school from the Cordillera, Cagayan Valley and the Ilocos Region figured in the Top 10. The topnotcher is a female - Mercedita L. Ona. There are only two males in the Top 10 (# 5 and 8).
From the province of Kalinga, a number of examinees made it to the list of passers: Marian Kristine Ambatali, Maria Florinia Binalay, Julio D. Barcellano Jr., Ceferino Calsiyao Jr., Jinky Fianza, Venus Torbela, Ford Tuazon, Mediatrix Tumbali and Ananias Christian G. Vargas.
