Chill… and get off Twitter: Leonen gives advice to Bar examinees
Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen has one word of advice for 2017 Bar examinees–“Chill!”
In his twitter account, the magistrate reminded examinees that the Bar examination, known to be the most difficult licensure examination in the Philippines “tests your ability to comprehend the problem, spot the issues, identify the legal provision and its basic interpretation.”
“You should be studying not reading twitter or Facebook. Smile,” he said.
But a day before the examination, he said examinees should “eat well, sleep well, make peace with your god or meditate.”
“Focus on your present,” he said adding that the focus is to be able to answer the questions one at a time, not on being fixated to top or to fail.
There are 7,227 candidates approved to take the 2017 Bar exam. This year’s chairman is Supreme Court Associate Lucas Bersamin.
