Black Friday: Bombing the Bar Exam

With California coming out last week, and as we have reported in previous blogs, the bar exam pass rates have plummeted across the country.

In California, passage rates for the exam in July hit the lowest point since 1986, with just 46.6% of total applicants and 60% of first-time test takers passing.

In New York, the passage rate for first-time test takers dropped 4 percentage points since the July 2014 test, from 74% to 70%, hitting the lowest point since 2004.

Passage rates also dropped in Washington, DC, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

The average score on the MBE on the July bar exam fell 1.6 points from the previous year, reaching its lowest level since 1988, according to data provided by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. The mean score on the July bar exam was 139.9, down from 141.5 in July 2014.

Many students go into the bar exam not understanding the magnitude of the exam and the proper methodology needed to pass.  Further, the additional MBE subject has trended lower MBE scores nationwide.

Nevertheless, there is one inescapable conclusion – you must pass the bar exam.  The MBE Testing Institute can help you succeed and guide you through the areas that will help you pass the bar exam and begin your life as a lawyer.  Don’t wait until you take the bar 2 or 3 or even 5 times – get help now and get the bar exam behind you.
