A survey of those who took New York’s first-ever online bar exam last week suggests that technical problems were more widespread than officials have indicated.

Among the nearly 500 survey respondents, 41% said they experienced Internet or software disruptions during the Oct. 5 and 6 remote exam. That’s in contrast to early data from the New York State Board of Law Examiners that indicated just 20 or fewer examinees experienced technical problems. (More than 30,000 people took online bar exam nationwide on those days, and bar examiners have hailed the test as a success, saying nearly everyone was able to complete it successfully.)
