 Only around 71 per cent of candidates in the first All India Bar Exam (AIBE) result which is declared today,are declared qualified, where the final grading for pass marks was a flat 40% according to a Bar Council of India (BCI) press release, which would mean roughly 6,300 graduates enrolled for the exam would have to retake it including Chennai graduates.
Despite opposition and court cases against it, the first-ever All India Bar Exam (AIBE) was successfully conducted on Sunday, 6th March, 2011 across 45 examination centres. The object of the exam was to  assess capabilities at a basic level, and is intended to set a minimum standard for admission to the practice of law; it addresses a candidate’s analytical abilities and basic knowledge of law. The notification bringing the All India Bar Examination into force was passed by the Legal Education Committee and the members of the Bar Council of India at duly constituted meetings on April 10, 2010 and April 30, 2010.Except for three centres in Chennai, which saw lawyers staging protests. The exam, saw 98 per cent turnout. It went off extremely well, except for some trouble in Chennai, where pproximately 1,600 candidates did not manage to take the exam. For them it will now be held on March 27. It is a great step towards the reform of legal education in India.
 The pass percentage amongst male and female candidates is nearly the same and “Candidates who were unable to pass the AIBE, they will be allowed to take the next AIBE . The release did not state how many candidates not counted in the 71 per cent pass rate did not pass due to non-attendance or failing to achieve the correct score.
The results can be seen from the BCI website, . The same is also available at the state Bar Councils of different states.
Low pass percentage in a very elementary paper reflects the actual standard of the legal education in India.Now  it is quite clear that there is some problem somewhere in the model of legal education. The result reflects that 29% fresh law graduates are below minimum standard. Now we have to think seriously and refine the whole system so the same thing may not be repeated in future. 
In this ambiguous moment of joy and sorrow The Technolexindia wish each passing candidate all the very best for their legal career ahead.
