No notice of admission yet? ‘Don’t panic’, Office the Bar Confidant tells examinees
MANILA, Philippines—“Do not panic,” the Supreme Court’s Office of the Bar Confidant (SC-OBC) has advised Bar examinees who have not yet received their Notices of Admission.
“In the next three days, the Notice of Admission will be sent to your Bar PLUS-registered e-mail address,” read the notice.
Once the electronic mail is received, the SC-OBC said bar examinees should download the “Undertaking,” which must be signed and submitted to the head proctor on the first day of the exams.
“Do not panic if you do not receive the e-mail immediately. Kindly note that examinees will not receive their Notices of Admission all at once,” it added.
If there is still no e-mail by January 27, the SC-OBC said the examinees might download both the Notice of Admission and Undertaking using the Bar PLUS account.
For instructions, the SC-OBC said, “You may check the User Guide on how to obtain these documents at https://sc.judiciary.gov.ph/23984/.”
“So as not to overwhelm the system,” bar examinees are advised to access BarPLUS on Jan. 27 from 4 a.m to 7 a.m for those in Mindanao testing centers; 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. for those in the Visayas; 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for those in Northern Luzon; 1 p.m. to 4 p.m for those in Southern Luzon and Quezon City; 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Manila and Pasay City; and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Makati City and Taguig City.
“If you miss the timeframe allotted for you, please access Bar PLUS during off-peak hours.”
The Bar examination is set for February 4 and 6.
