Breaking: The second All India Bar Exam (AIBE) has been postponed by one month to 24 July, to avoid a clash with other exams and encourage further applications.

The AIBE, which was slated to take place on 26 June following the completion of the first exam in most states except Chennai on 6 March, would be held on 24 July said the Bar Council of India (BCI) today in a press release.

It explained: “The BCI has received various requests from candidates/SBCs to postpone the next AIBE to allow for more candidates to take the AIBE and allow certain candidates to appear for various judicial examinations to be conducted across the country.”

The registration deadline for the second AIBE will be 24 June, according to the BCI.

Practice certificates

Candidates who passed the first AIBE and are still waiting for their certificates of practice would receive these by the end of this Month, added the BCI:

Certificates of Practice for all candidates who successfully cleared the AIBE held on March 6, 2011 are currently being despatched and will be available for collection from the concerned SBCs (where the candidate is enrolled) from May 30, 2011 onwards. Candidates are requested to collect their certificate of practice from the SBC and to contact the SBC for the same.

Note: Certificates of Practice will not be provided for any candidates who have not provided the BCI with proof of their enrolment with an SBC as well as candidates who had provided incorrect DDs etc.– any candidates that have not yet done so are requested to send across the same to the BCI urgently. Candidates are also requested to look at the list of application discrepancies and data mismatches that have been put up on the BCI website.
