ADDU got a high overall passing rate of 73.30% (33 out of 45), with 14 re-takers, compared to the national passing rate of 25.97% (1,731 out of 6,665).

The AdDU School of Law was awarded the fifth top performing law school in the country by the Legal Education Board last December, with an average passing rate of 53.02 per cent. The result was based on the cumulative Bar Exam results of different law schools from 2012 to 2014 as certified by the Office of the Bar Confidante of the Supreme Court.

The passing grade was set at 75%, unlike for the past two years where the Supreme Court lowered the passing rate to 73%.
