MANILA, Philippines – A law graduate of Notre Dame University in Cotabato City was surprised that she is the fourth-placed topnotcher of the 2011 bar examination.
Rosemil Bañaga, a certified public accountant, was stunned with the result since it was her first time to take the bar exam.
“Hindi ko talaga ini-expect kasi nahirapan ako sa exam na ‘yun,” said the 42-year-old Bañaga.
Bañaga also took a degree in accountancy at the Notre Dame University in Cotabato City.
This is the first time that a law graduate from the Cotabato university made it to the top 10.
Aside from Bañaga, 6 other law graduates from Notre Dame passed the 2011 exams. -- Report from Lerio Bompat, ABS-CBN News Central Mindanao
