The Manila Police District (MPD) said today it expects the last Sunday for the 2018 Bar Examinations to remain peaceful. The first three Sundays were reported hassle-free.
However, due to the expected huge volume of supporters trooping to University of Sto. Tomas, heightened security remains in the area. MPD added that a portion of España Boulevard from Lacson Avenue to P. Noval Street would be closed to traffic by 3 p.m. to accommodate the supporters and the exam-takers expecting to mill around and talk about the gruelling exams they’ve been through.
A total of 8,701 aspiring lawyers took the exam this year, a record highest in recent years according to Supreme Court.
