Bar Council of Maldives have postponed the first ever bar exam in the country to November, after reiterating multiple times that there was no reason to delay the exam.
In a press release by the council a couple of days ago, the council said that the bar exams required under the Legal Profession Act could not be postponed due to a lot of financial and administrative work done over the past three years to hold the exam.
However, in the statement released on Tuesday evening, they said the exam scheduled for June 25 has now been postponed for November 19.
Students that had withdrawn their name after registering to do the exam on June 25 will not have to register again for the postponed exam.
Registration for the postponed exam will be opened at a later date.
Even though nearly 1,000 people qualify to take the exam, approximately 200 people registered for the exam. The bar council exam fee is MVR 10,000.
