The Bar Council of India (BCI) has begun uploading results for the fourth All India Bar Exam (AIBE).

The 9 December AIBE, which was cancelled for all candidates appearing in Jaipur and some appearing in Bhopal, will now be held on 13 January at Jaipur and Jabalpur, respectively.

The exam on 9 December was cancelled due to shortage of question papers, after candidates without an admit card appeared at the centre. 1600 candidates had reached the Jaipur venue where 700 were expected, and 1200 reached Bhopal’s centre where 923 were expected.

For Sunday’s exam, the BCI has provided admit cards to 1,281 candidates at Jaipur and 1,059 at Bhopal. [Notification]
