UB Law Grad Chalks Exemplary Mark in the 2020-2021 Bar Exams

Atty. Deneb Daydora, a Magna Cum Laude graduate from the University of Bohol (UB) and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), is among the 761 Bar passers recognized by the Supreme Court of the Philippines as having earned an “exemplary” mark after obtaining a grade of not less than 85% and not more than 90% in the 2020-2021 Bar Examinations. According to Associate Justice Marivic Leonen, Chairperson, 2020/21 Bar Examinations.

Dean Gregorio B. Austral, UB College of Law, disclosed UB’s new lawyers as Atty. Marsha Boniel, Atty. Deneb Daydora, Atty. Prima Sumodobila and Atty. Jean Tubac. An average of 72.28 percent or 8,241 out of 11,402 examinees have successfully hurdled the Bar exams, which were given last February 4 and 6 in 31 testing sites across the country.

For the first time, the Supreme Court shifted from the traditional handwritten exam in all its testing centers to a digitalized format using dedicated software. Unlike in the previous Bar results, there was no announcement of the top 10 passers. The Supreme Court only recognized Bar examinees with “excellent performance,” having obtained grades higher than 90 percent, and those with “exemplary performance,” with an average of 85-90 percent. Law schools were also ranked based on the percentage of passers and the number of examinees with exemplary performance.

The oath-taking of the new lawyers is set for May 2, 2022, at the SM Mall arena.
