Candidates from the OBC or open category must achieve a minimum score of 45 per cent to qualify for the exam. For SC, ST, and specially-abled candidates, the passing score is set at 40 per cent. Individuals who pass AIBE 18 will be awarded a Certificate of Practice (COP) by the council which is necessary for practicing law in India.
