BCI to release Sunday’s AIBE-IX results in eight weeks

'Balanced' paper? 'Smooth' organisation? How was AIBE 9 for you?
'Balanced' paper? 'Smooth' organisation? How was AIBE 9 for you?
Sunday’s All India Bar Exam’s (AIBE-IX) results will be released tentatively before 15 April, the Bar Council of India (BCI) notified on its website today.

The notification states:

“The Aibe IX was conducted on 6 March 2016 Suc[c]essfully at 62 Center[s] across India.

‘The result for the same would be released tentatively before 15 Th April 2016.’”

A Delhi University 2015 law graduate who was attempting the AIBE for the first time on Sunday said that the question paper was “pretty balanced”. “It was as most of the open book question papers are supposed to be. You could open the bare act and find the answers but some questions needed some level of application of mind also. Three hours were sufficient to attempt the exam. Some questions were tricky and on first look may seem wrong but weren’t likely inaccurate.”

The candidate said that the exam’s organisation at the centre – which was in Noida for this candidate – was also smooth, with the seating plan available before the exam began. Though some candidates faced initial difficulty because of the roll numbers on their admit cards not being printed properly.

The candidate also said that there were no instances of cheating heard of and that most candidates had turned up at the centre with “big trolleys full of bare acts in luggage used at the airport” because the BCI does not allow the use of electronic bare acts.

This edition of the AIBE had been postponed by almost three months from its original schedule.

The AIBE – VIII results were published six weeks after the exam was held.
