Gone are the days when you would see a string of people strolling with a suitcase, entering an exam hall. They would take out humongous books only to find one the answer in the index (that too in the front and not the back one).

Here is a screenshot of the notification. Sadly, that’s the only proof available online. Such record-keeping for a profession that relies on precedent.
