The Second Week of Bar

Thank you Atty. Lacierda for reminding me. I went to Bea’s school early today to get her report card. Let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised at her grades. At least she did not get her mother’s recessive genes…

So you made it through the first Sunday of the bar exams. If you didn’t I guess there is no point in reading this.

Anyway, the second Sunday is actually more of the same. The advantage is you’ve been through the first week so you must be more comfortable about it right now. You may want to review my tips last week in taking the exams in general.

What subjects are your going to take? Civil law and Taxation?

Oooooohhhhh! In my personal experience, I concentrated more on Civil law since I was weak in Taxation.

In Civil law, I guess the bulk will be in Persons and Family Relations. Article 26 of the Family Code on foreign obtained divorce is a good bet to be there… but I’m just guessing…

For tax, however, you better just brush up on jurisprudence on the VAT (and EVAT). I know the recent case will not be included but there are old cases upholding its constitutionality. Also local taxation (again, a guess…)

I only have a few things to tell you from this point on.

1. Don’t give up.

You’ve come this far. What’s another three Sundays?

2. Pray/hope for a fair exam.

I mean for questions that are in the syllabus and not from another planet.

So at least if you don’t know the answer, you can only blame yourself for not covering it.

3. Again, relax
