Nationwide Tech Disaster Hits Bar Exams

A technology disaster struck multiple states yesterday as bar examinees found themselves unable to upload their completed examinations by the deadline.  The unhappy affected examinees were forced to try resubmitting their exams repeatedly over the course of the evening, upsetting many plans to rest and prepare for the second day of the test.

ExamSoft, the company that provided the software involved in this incident, has compiled a list of states that have moved back their submission deadlines in response to their examinees' difficulties.

Local examinees taking the Texas Bar Examination were not affected yesterday; the first day of the Texas exam was scheduled to end around lunchtime, and the examinees that experienced problems were testing in states where Tuesday’s exam was supposed to be submitted in the evening.
