It was a proud moment for West Visayas State University when alumna Allana Mae A. Babayen-on placed 4th in the recent Bar examination. This AB Political Science Magna Cum Laude garnered an impressive score of 88.75% in what is deemed as the “hardest examination in the country”. The results were released by the Supreme Court on May 3, 2017 wherein a total of three thousand seven hundred forty seven (3,747) lawyers passed the 2016 Bar exams out of six thousand three hundred forty four (6,344) examinees, or an overall passing rate of 59.06%, the highest in 16 years.
“When I saw my name on the top 10 list of Bar passers, I laughed and cried at the same time! I thanked the universe for the fulfillment of a dream that I worked hard for. I immediately called home and talked to my family”.
