If you have read MBE & Testing Institute tweets and blogs, you know that 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. The mean scaled score on the February administration of the MBE fell to 135, down 1.2 points from the previous year and the lowest average score on a February administration of the test since 1983. That is a 33 year low for the MBE.
The MBE scores have been systematically lower since the NCBE has made its changes.
This has resulted in state scores that have been consistently lower than in past years. Florida, Kansas, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, West Virginia, to only name a few states, saw lower pass rates in their July or February results.
This overall decline may be the new reality or may be a future trend.
The MBE & UBE Testing Institute works only with repeat takers and we have personal knowledge of the struggles that the students face when they have failed the bar exam. If you are a repeat taker, please contact us to learn about our P.A.S.S. system.
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.
