What the yotz?!?!
Damn. Civil Law was okay, but Taxation was a humdinger. It was so much of a humdinger that the Bar Chairperson extended the allocated time by an hour, and according to the watchers, that virtually never happens. It didn't help that much though if you didn't have any idea how to answer the questions.
After I left, I couldn't help but notice a couple of female barristers somewhat teary-eyed after leaving their examination rooms. Other barristers wore glum expressions and traversed the halls with their heads bowed.
And I thought I was taking this exam seriously.
Outside, it was the only thing being talked about. Everyone, regardless of school, was seemingly blindsided by the questions asked in Taxation. People I hardly knew were asking me how I did, or sharing their thoughts about the exam. Reactions varied from depression, to anger, to hysterical laughter.
What can I say? These are the Bar exams we're talking about. Expect the unexpected. And the unexpected certainly manifested itself in this particular Sunday.
Me, I just answered the questions to the best of my ability. That's all anyone can hope for given the circumstances.
Now we dust ourselves off and move on.
Two more Sundays and four more exams to go.
And then I go back to work.
