To continue PhiLSAT or not?

The Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the Legal Education Board (LEB) to explain its memorandum centralizing entrance examinations in law schools. The high court required the LEB to answer a petition filed by retired Makati Regional Trial Court Judge Oscar Pimentel questioning the conduct of the Philippine Law School Admission Test (PhiLSAT).

The petition questioned the constitutionality of Republic Act 7662, the Legal Education Reform Act, which became the basis for the issuance of LEB Memorandum Order No. 7 for the conduct of PhiLSAT.

Pimentel, a member of the University of Sto. Tomas faculty of Civil Law, urged the high court to stop the implementation of the LEB order.

The first PhiLSAT examination was held on April 16 in seven pilot sites: Baguio City, Metro Manila, Legazpi City, Cebu City, Iloilo City, Davao City and Cagayan de Oro. See complete list of PhiLSAT passers here.

A total of 6,575 out of 8,074 pass the first ever Philippine Law School Admission Test. For the first PhiLSAT, the passing grade was adjusted to 45% as consideration because the examinations have limited review materials. 

What do you think should be the decision of the SC? Should the entrance exams be centralized?
