(UPDATED, 10:00 PM of 19 SEPTEMBER 2023 )

The annual Bar Examinations will be held in different locations across the country this September 17, 20, and 24, 2023. In line with this, Mayor Maila Ting-Que of Tuguegarao City has announced the suspension of classes in all levels as well as work in government offices in her constituency since Cagayan State University has been chosen as one of the local testing centers for the bar exams.

In Metro Manila, San Beda University–Manila, University of Santo Tomas, San Beda College–Alabang, University of the Philippines–Diliman, University of the Philippines–Bonifacio Global City, and the Manila Adventist College were designated as testing centers.
