The candidates who test positive for COVID-19 are required to inform the test conducting agency about their inability to attend the examination. Such candidates will have to send a corona positive report via email responseteamaibe@gmail.com before the date of examination, reads the notification.

The notification adds that COVID positive candidates can request to carry forward their fee which will be considered by the monitoring committee. The outcome of the monitoring committee will be informed only after the conduct of AIBE XV (15) 2021.

It may also be noted that the helpline email given above can only be used for registering the issues related to medical and health emergencies. Other types of requests should be sent through the appropriate channels.

Last year, the BCI did not conduct AIBE due to the COVID-pandemic. And, after repeated postponement, it has now been scheduled to be held on January 24. Law graduates may also note that the council has released the application form of AIBE XVI (16). The AIBE XVI (16) 2021 will be conducted on March 6, 2021.
