Testing software provider ExamSoft Worldwide Inc. says a processing issue has caused a delay for some bar exam takers in multiple states in submitting their answers.

Thirty-year-old Maggie Watson says she took the Minnesota bar exam in St. Paul. She says she tried for hours to submit her answers before they went through.

Knotts says the issue does not affect exam takers' content. He says all the states that had not yet received all exams extended their deadlines.

The Boca Raton, Florida-based company also has offices in Dallas and administers bar exams in 43 U.S. states.
