The SC still could not confirm if anyone had requested to reschedule the bar exams | Rare Techy
MANILA, Philippines – It was not clear as of Monday whether or not anyone has formally applied to delay the 2022 bar exams in light of the damage caused by Typhoon Peng, the Public Information Office of the Supreme Court (SC-PIO) told reporters on Monday.
“I think it is premature to say that the OBC (Office of the Bar Confidant) has received a formal request or petition considering the official holidays,” SC spokesperson Atty. Brian Keith Hosaka said.
“I will have to wait to answer your question on November 2,” he said.
The death toll from Typhoon Peng has reached 98, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

Using the hashtag #MoveTheBar2022, social media users are calling for the bar exams to be rescheduled, saying, “No Barsibs get left behind.”
The exam will be held on November 9, 13, 16 and 20.
Hosaka said 9,916 examinees are expected to take the bar. This number is down from the 10,075 applicants initially approved.
