First of all, handwriting your bar exam is not necessarily a competitive disadvantage. Lots of people handwrite their exams and plenty of them pass the bar exam each year. No one has a "right" to demand to take their exam on a laptop. For example, in CA, if you don't register as soon as registration begins it is possible that all of the seats at the laptop test locations will be taken and the person will have to take the exam at a handwriting location.

That being said, the problem might be that the computer software used for writing the bar exam is very rigid to prevent cheating. It may be that taking the exam at a different time than the rest of the test takers is not allowed by the software in order to prevent people from looking at the questions ahead of time and/or altering their answers afterwards. The software is not created by the Bar, it is created by an outside company who creates a new version for each bar exam. It may be that the software was already created an installed by a large portion of the exam takers and would be too cumbersome (or impossible) to change by the time the software company was notified by the Bar committee about Tisha B'Av.

There seems to be typo, but regardless, the bar exam does fall out on Tisha B'av, July 24th.

You have me totally mystified by this because this Tisha B'av will occur on Tuesday, JULY 24th (and not 25th). You can verify this on your own calendars.

May HaShem please change Tisha B'Av to a time of celebration
with the rebuilding of Our Holy Bais HaMikdosh.
