Attend to your personal needs before the FIRST BELL (7:30 A.M., 1:00 P.M. or 1:30 P.M., as indicated above). 11.At the sound of the FIRST BELL, no examinee will be allowed to leave the room. All books and notes should then be placed in front of the room. An examinee will be considered cheating if caught with notes or codigos during the examination. 3 Instructions for the Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) Portion: 1. Write your name and signature on the MCQ ANSWER SHEET using a sign pen or fountain pen. Then, with a No. 2 pencil, write your B.E. Number in the boxes provided and shade the circles corresponding to your B.E. Number. Study ANNEX B for Marking Instructions. NOTE: The scanning machine cannot read improperly shaded numbers or numbers not shaded with a No. 2 pencil. Also, shading the wrong B.E. Numbers may result in your scores not being credited to you. So please be careful when filling up the answer sheet. 2. Make sure the answer sheet you have is for the correct exam, i.e., Mercantile Law answer sheet for the Mercantile Law exam, Criminal Law answer sheet for the Criminal Law exam, etc. 3. Before the SECOND BELL, and with the questionnaire facing down, check if your questionnaire has the correct number of pages. 4. Begin answering only at the sound of the SECOND BELL (8:00 A.M., 1:30 P.M. or 2:00 P.M. as indicated above). Indicate your answer by shading completely the appropriate circle corresponding to the letter you have chosen. (Refer to the marking instructions in Annex B.) 5. Avoid erasures on the answer sheet. If you need to make corrections, erase completely the answer you want to change. 6. Do not explain your answers in the MCQ portion of the exam. You will not earn any credit for that. 7. Keep the answer sheet clean. Do not make any unnecessary marks on it. Do not fold, roll, scratch, crumple or tear it. 8. You may write on the questionnaire and use it as scratch paper but make sure to transfer your answer to the answer sheet. Provide ample time to transfer the answers if you choose to do this. 9. Budget your time. For the major subjects, you will have 2 hours to answer 100 MCQs and another 2 hours for the 10 essay questions. For the minor subjects, except legal ethics, you will have 1 hours to answer 75 MCQs and another 1 hours for the 10 essay questions. The last exam (legal ethics and practical exercises) will consist of 50 MCQs and the trial memorandum writing test. It will last for 3 hours. NOTE: The exam is designed so that the MCQ portion will be answerable within half of the total allotted time, i.e., within 2 hours for the major subjects and 1 hours for the minor subjects. The MCQ portion for the legal ethics exam, however, is designed to be answerable within 1 hour. 10.Answer first the MCQ portion completely before going to the essay portion.
