Persons failing SC Bar no longer are allowed to review and seek re-grading of papers

The state Supreme Court has revised Rule 402 SCACR. Applicants were allowed to review and seek re-grading of their papers if they failed a section. The Court is now doing away with this re-grading:

In our opinion, the internal review process conducted by the Board is more than sufficient to insure that any error in grading is determined before the examination results are released. Therefore, we have decided to delete the current provisions allowing for review and re-grading after the results are released, bringing this jurisdiction in line with the overwhelming majority of other jurisdictions.

This is highly unfortunate... Especially given the fact that the cut-off score for almost every state's bar examination is becoming higher and higher.
