5 Weeks Until the Bar Exam

There are 5 weeks until the February 2019 bar exam.

Every day you must chip away at the large amount of material, taking manageable bites until you have mastered that bite and go onto the next one. As someone has once said, how do you eat an elephant – with one bite at a time. In other words, take smaller sections of the vast material, learn it and then take another section of the bar exam and learn that section, until, before you know it, you have learned the law, practiced your questions and are ready to sit for the bar exam.

Always stay in the moment of that day, because if you look too far ahead, you will waste precious time worrying about the large amount of material you must learn or how fast the time is ticking before the bar exam.

Taking the bar exam is not a sprint. You cannot do everything in one day. Do not drive yourself to exhaustion thinking that you must skip meals, skip the gym, skip sleeping in order to prepare yourself for the bar exam. You cannot run down your body or your mind. Take regular breaks so that you can come back refreshed and ready to learn.

Remember, it was the tortoise that won the race, and not the hare. And to quote the tortoise, “slowly does it every time”.

Make this your best 5 weeks ever and know that you have put everything on the table to become a lawyer.

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute knows that taking the bar exam as a repeat taker can be an isolating experience. The MBE & UBE Testing Institute helps the student keep motivated and confident through interaction with an MBE & UBE Testing Institute’s bar tutor.

Answer the Call of the Question in the Order Given

Many bar exam essays have specific issues in the call of the question that sets out what the bar examiners want you to answer. For example, in a torts question, the bar examiners want to know what the causes of actions are for a) Tom, b) Dick and c) Harry.

Each bar exam grader has a rubric that she follows when she grades her batch of essays. The rubric starts with a, then b, then c. Don’t make the bar exam grader’s job harder when she has to hunt for the answer because you started with Harry, then Tom, then Dick.

Your goal is to make it easy for the bar examiner to grade your essay and for you to get the maximum point total as you can get. If the bar examiner can’t find what she is looking for because you have mixed up the order of the call of the question, you may be cheating yourself out of hard-earned points because she can’t find it.

Follow and answer the call of the question exactly as written.

North Carolina’s State Specific Portion of the UBE

We have had a lot of our students ask us about the North Carolina state specific portion of the UBE. Like New York when that state turned UBE, North Carolina will have a quiz on state specific law for the students to pass before they can get their license. All general applicants and transfer applicants seeking licensure to practice law in North Carolina must successfully complete the North Carolina State-Specific Component of the Uniform Bar Examination.

The North Carolina State-Specific Component is an online course, covering the following 6 subject areas of the law: Estate Planning & Administration, Criminal Law, Family Law, Real Estate, Torts, and Workers’ Compensation. The course contains video presentations for each subject area. Each video is approximately one hour in length. Each subject area video presentation must be reviewed in its entirety. Upon completion of each subject area video presentation, you will be presented with 3 quiz questions. You must answer all 3 questions correctly in order to advance to another subject area. If you do not answer all three questions correctly, you will be required to review the subject area again in its entirety and then successfully complete a new 3 question quiz. That’s all there is to it. However, an important note is that you can not provide or receive any assistance to complete this quiz nor can you disseminate the link for assess to the course.

Our suggestion is to do the quiz after the bar exam and as you are waiting for your results. This way you will have no obstacles to licensure once you pass the UBE.

Stay Motivated

Along with your belief that you will pass and remaining positive, you must stay motivated. Studying for the bar exam is drudgery at its finest. Day-in and day-out, every day, minutes and hours pass by as you struggle to learn, review and to practice. Sometimes you wonder why you are putting yourself through this misery.

That is why you must stay motivated. What is your incentive to continue studying and to pass the bar exam? You went through 4 years of colleges and the last 3 years going to law school to come to this juncture in your life. Among a desire to do good for others and the love of the law, you went to law school mainly to provide a good living for yourself and/or for your family.

Don’t forget those reasons for why you went to law school, for why you are studying for the bar exam and why you need to pass and become the lawyer you have always wanted to be.

Do not look at it from a longer time perspective – as in, its 5 weeks to the bar exam. Take one day at a time, following your study schedule and be satisfied with the gains you make from day to day. Motivate yourself to get through the material today, not tomorrow. Be happy about the progress you make today only. Then start afresh the next day. You’ll worry about tomorrow, when it comes. Motivation comes in small bites when you are studying for the bar exam.

Practicing MBE Questions

In order to do well on the MBE, you must know the fine distinctions of the law. You can study those fine distinctions by studying your outlines and then by working on questions.

It is not enough for you to work on the questions, review the answers and then move on. You must understand why you picked the right answer or the wrong answer. That is why you must read the explanation carefully, reading each answer choice explanation, whether right or wrong.

If you missed the question, ask yourself why you missed the question. Did you miss it because you didn’t know the law, didn’t know the facts or didn’t know the “trick” of the question? Sometimes with cursory reading of the fact pattern, you miss certain clues of law, certain facts that now seem important or even a confusion of what actually happened in the fact pattern. Sometimes you misapply the facts to the law.

Analyzing the question and the answer choices will help you understand if there is a pattern to your misses or if there are holes in your analysis.

6 weeks until the Bar Exam: Where Should You Be Today?

There are 6 weeks until the bar exam. Where should you be today?

Follow Your Schedule

By this time you should have set a realistic work schedule that allows for lecture time, review time, practice time and relaxation time.

Maintain your concentration level by varying your study activities, i.e. if you are reading an outline and losing focus, start practicing questions.

Know Your Law

You should be trying to commit to memory the black letter law. Knowing the law means that you internalize the material in such a way that you truly “own” it and can spit it out on demand. This does not mean that you recognize the material or it seems familiar to you. The bar exam requires you to know the rules with precision and specificity and to have a solid understanding of the rules.

Continue to do practice questions, essays and performance tests.

Know Your State Bar Exam

You should know your bar exam like the back of your hand. Everyone must prepare for the MBE, but you should know the ins and outs of your state exam. Tailor your studies to your state exam.
