MANILA — Two junior officers of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) are set to become lawyers after passing the 2019 Bar examinations.

In a Facebook post, the BFP-National Capital Region lauded Fire Officer 3 Marco Arpon and Fire Officer 1 Kim Austine Padilla for being among the 2,103 passers of the Bar exams, held at the University of Santo Tomas (UST) during all four Sundays of November last year.

"The entire Bureau of Fire Protection National Capital Region extends its warmest congratulations to its new lawyers who passed the November 2019 Bar Exams," the bureau's regional office said. 

The Supreme Court released on Wednesday the full list of passers, led by Mae Diane Azores, from the University of Santo Tomas-Legazpi.

The passing grade this year was pegged at 74 percent.
