BCI ramps up bar exam difficulty, grads fail to finish ………. (Legally India)0
Graduates sitting for the 2012 All India Bar Exam (AIBE) were greeted on Sunday with a tough question paper, as the Bar Council of India (BCI) has said it would slowly increase the standard.
Every one of nine exam takers quizzed byLegally India said that the difficulty of the three-and-a-half-hour 100-question paper had increased in comparison to the sample mock exam.
“It was long and boring,” said one, while another added: “Hardly anyone could finish answering in time. On an average, most of us were able to attempt around 85 questions.” Another exam taker claimed that the exam was “no cakewalk” and that ‘part B’ of the paper on ‘interpretation principles’ took most time to complete.
“It was tougher than the model paper,” agreed another on Twitter. “Last year my friends took 2 hrs to complete the paper. This year almost everyone took 3 hrs.”
