Some 9,916 Bar examinees out of 10,075 approved applicants are expected to take the 2022 Bar Examinations on November 9, 13, 16, and 20.
Supreme Court spokesperson Brian Keith Hosaka revealed this on Monday in a message to reporters.
This year’s Bar exams will be held in 14 local testing centers across the country.
The Bar exams will be held in the following testing centers:
National Capital Region
San Beda College in Manila, De la Salle University along Taft Avenue, Manila Adventist College in Pasay City, Ateneo Junior and High School Complex in Ateneo de Manila University, and University of the Philippines in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
St. Louis University in Baguio City, De La Salle Lipa, and University of Nueva Caceres in Camarines Sur.

Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro City, Ateneo de Davao University, and Ateneo de Zamboanga University.
Meanwhile, Hosaka said that the 159 law graduates whose applications to take the 2022 Bar Examinations were approved but at the last minute withdrew them would have to send a formal notice to the Office of the Bar Confidant (OBC) citing the reasons for their withdrawal.
“I don’t know the reasons for their withdrawal to take the 2022 Bar Exams. Yes, I believe a formal notice would have to be sent by them to the Office of the Bar Confidant,” Hosaka said.
