What some have claimed is “Barmaggedon” are the issues with ExamSoft, an exam software company, which have left hundreds of students up late at night trying to upload their exams to the server.
Above the Law reports that there is an “unknown number of bar exam candidates – surely thousands” that have typed and completed their bar exam yet cannot upload their exams to the server. This poses a major problem as most states have uploading deadlines that require their state essay exams to be uploaded by a specific time. Some, but not all, states have delayed the uploading deadline given these issues. Michigan has extended the deadline until 11:00 PM tonight.
There have been a number of tweets to ExamSoft that express the frustration people are having. Here are a few of the latest:“Congrats, ExamSoft! You have just been selected as my next torts final exam question!” “Simultaneously getting “failure” and “success” emails from ExamSoft, what is this a new #mailboxrule?…” “Examsoft did a great job hiring the team that built the Obamacare website.” “Pretty grateful I’m not a social media manager for ExamSoft today.”
Someone even took it a step further and posted a Craigslist ad titled “Bar examinee seeking sexy single to upload exam with – m4w -25 (Buffalo).”
We are very sorry if you had to spend your night dealing with these issues – rather than reviewing, relaxing, or sleeping. If you have had to deal with the unfortunate and unnecessary stress from ExamSoft, try to clear it from your mind and get ready to conquer the MBE today! We will post any updates we receive to the ExamSoft debacle.
