Questions related to AIBE
in aibe 2020 . i named correctly in box but wrong in bobulles. i made it correct by using whitner to 2 bobulles sir using of whitner in answer sheets will leafs to whitheld or disqualify help me sir
If you have not filled details in OMR correctly, then that may be a problem for you in evaluation of your answer copy. However, since you have corrected the details by using whitener, then it is at your own risk whether your answer sheet will be correctly evaluated or not. But for now do not worry much as students do make such mistakes but if it is neatly corrected then chances of getting disqualified is less.
in aibe 15 omr sheet in self declaration in i column had mention only my name not father name too is it also a reason to disqualification
See if there is the column for Father's name in the OMR sheet of AIBE XV or it is required to fill the Father's name and you have not filled it out then this might be the reason for disqualification, because generally the candidate is supposed to fill out all the details required in the OMR sheet and there is a software through which the OMR sheets are scanned for making result so if it found any incomplete OMR sheet then it will throw an error and might disqualify the candidate for incomplete details. But if there is no any requirement for Father's name then you don't have to worry because the main thing is the OMR sheet should be completely filled with correct details.

Thank you for your immediate replies. There is an assumption that AIBE is required for enrolement for Law Graduates passed only after June 2010 onwards. AIBE is NOT required for Law Graduates paaased out before June 2010 and may go for direct enrolement without AIBE. Plz clarify.
yes, the statement you mentioned is correct. AIBE examination is mandatory for all law graduates and advocates who enrolled themselves after 2010 in state bar council (SBC). If candidate qualifies this exam, he/she will be awarded with "Certificate of Practice" by the Bar Council of India. This notification of AIBE was passed during a meeting in April 2010, therefore candidates who enrolled themselves before 2010 do not need to write AIBE.
