Halls booked, loaded and ready to go?
The Bar Council of India (BCI) said today that over 13,000 candidates applied to take the second All India Bar Exam (AIBE), which is set to take place on 24 July after it was postponed by a month in May.

BCI chairman and solicitor general Gopal Subramanium said in a statement released on the BCI website today that preparatory materials had been dispatched to “over 13000 applicants for the AIBE”, with admit cards set to be dispatched on 13 July 2011.

The exam would take place on 24 July between 11:30 am until 3 pm.

More than 5,600 candidates out of 19,800 failed the first AIBE of 6 March 2011 but today’s BCI statement did not explain how many of the 13,000 applicants for the second exam were retaking the first test.

The registration deadline for the second exam was 24 June.

According to the BCI, a list of 300 applications that were completed incorrectly have been published on the BCI website. Those candidates could still provide correct their application by 10 July in time for the 24 July AIBE, according to the BCI.
