BAGUIO CITY – A son of a taxi driver in Baguio City beat the tall odds when he became the country’s first visually impaired bar examination passer.

Anthony Mark Emocling of the University of Baguio Law School was among the 3,992 passers of last year’s bar whose results came out Friday.

Emocling graduated cum laude in political science also at UB.
