The July 2016 Bar Exam: 4 Weeks until the Florida Bar Exam Results

The wait is almost over. There are now only 4 weeks left until the Florida bar exam results will be released on September 19th. Try to relax – your results are beyond your control now. We will release the results as soon as we get them.

As we can see, the Florida bar exam is changing.  In the last 3 bar cycles we have gotten issues that normally only appear in the multiple choice sections.  A few bar cycles ago we had a little wills thrown in, we have gotten criminal law and criminal procedure and federal constitutional law seems to be the hot topic..

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute will be conducting a  Florida Substantive Subjects and Writing Essay Seminar after the bar exam results have been released and prior to the February 2017 bar exam. This all day intensive seminar is for first time bar takers, repeat bar takers, foreign educated lawyers and any person looking to improve on his/her Florida essays for the Florida Bar Examination. This seminar will address writing and substantive subjects on the exam. The Seminar will be conducted by multiple law professors who have taught in several Florida law schools on the Florida bar exam.

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute will also be holding teleseminars and webinars on the Florida bar exam.

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.

The July 2016 Bar Exam: Is the Bar Exam More Difficult?

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 July 2016 Bar Exam: MBE Scores and the New Reality

The MBE scores have been systematically lower since the NCBE has made its changes.

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 July 2015 results were also down 1.6 points from the previous year, to 139.9, its lowest point since 1988.

The NCBE believes the downward trend is likely to continue for at least a couple more years.  We do know that performance on the bar exam has continued to dip down to levels we have never seen and it appears that this is not an aberration, but a new realty.

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute can help you increase your MBE scores.

The reality is that  you must pass the bar exam.  The MBE & UBE 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.
