Nielson Pangan: 96th in class, No.1 in 2013 bar exams

Nielson Pangan did not expect to top the 2013 bar exams, but from what he and his classmates were trained in the UP College of Law, they were more conditioned to become good lawyers.

In a GMA News TV interview, Nielson said, he was shocked by the result.
Hindi ko talaga inasahan. Until now I am shocked. Hindi ko alam kung anong nangyari
Pangan is also glad that UP kind of redeemed itself.
I am really happy for my school for placing the top again to redeem ourselves. Maraming nagsasabi na nawawala na ang UP, but here we are and I'm really proud of my school
We were reminded na galingan namin, pero from the start, ang focus namin is to train to be good lawyers. So minsan, wala nang pakialam sa Bar. Parang ganon ang dating... But our batch tried to excel rin
Nielson Pangan is the first lawyer in his family. His father and two brothers are engineers by profession.

Nielson was in fact, ranked 96 in his class in UP College of Law. The 2013 #1 bar topnotcher admitted he was just an everage student. He racalled the bar exam:
[The Bar Exam] was very difficult and even in law school, I was an average student lang naman. Yes [I was only rank 96 in the batch], I think nasa bottom half pa nga ako n’on. So to top [the Bar] was unlikely talaga.
Nielson Pangan is now working under a corporate law practicing firm Migallos and Luna Law Offices.

Congratulations Nielson! (Source, Source)
