What is the AIBE exam?

The AIBE is a benchmark examination which tests an advocate's ability to practice law anywhere in India. The examination tests skills sets like the candidate’s analytical abilities and understanding basic knowledge of law. Candidates who qualify in the exam are awarded "Certificate of Practice" by the Bar Council of India.

The 3 hour 30 minutes long exam is available in 11 languages, and includes 100 multiple choice questions (MCQs) of one mark each; there is no negative marking.

An interesting feature of the exam is the result doesn’t mention either the sectional or total score. Instead, it is simply reported as pass or failed.
