470 All India Bar Exam ‘passes’ become ‘fails’ for ‘technical reasons’

AIBE 4: Technical fail, inconvenience regretted
AIBE 4: Technical fail, inconvenience regretted
Nearly five hundred candidates who were previously notified they had passed the fourth All India Bar Exam (AIBE) held on 9 December 2012, had actually failed the exam, announced the Bar Council of India (BCI) on the official AIBE website, with Hyderabad candidates being the hardest hit.

The notice, which is available via a link called Notification on AIBE-IV at the bottom of the http://www.allindiabarexamination.com/ website, stated:

1. Notification on AIBE-IV candidates whose result was amended from “Pass” to “Fail”

Due to technical reasons we found discrepancies in the result of many candidates. We looked into this issue and rectified the error. After rectification we found some of the candidates who were previously declared as “Pass” were originally “Fail”. We verified it by manual checking of the answer sheets of such candidates. The list of such candidates is available here. Kindly visit the link and if you find your name in this list kindly apply for next AIBE. In case of any query kindly feel free to contact us. Any inconvenience caused is regretted.

The Excel spreadsheet list contains 470 names of candidates from Guwahati, Cochin, Chandigarh, Aurangabad and Hyderabad.

Hyderabad candidates make up more than half the list with 283 names.

A BCI official confirmed the notice on the website but was not able to provide further details on the cause of the discrepancy.

The notification also adds a further clarification on finding AIBE results, which were first published in late January.

2. Notification on Searching the Result for AIBE -4
The candidates who have given the All India Bar Examination on 9th December, 2012 through Undertaking have to check their result using their Enrollment number only. In case any candidate fails to get their result i.e. either they find their result as “Withheld” or “Not Found” then they are instructed to send the following set of documents at the earliest on the following e-mail id : .
