The July 2014 Bar Exam Results: Missouri Statistics and the Lower MBE Scores

Please look at our seminars, MBE programs and Bar Exam Tutors at www.barprofessors.com.


There have been rumblings that the MBE was much harder than last year and that the pass rates will dip this year. Missouri is the first state that really gives us the information we need to see how the other states will fall out.

Missouri has released its bar exam results for July 2014. The pass rate is 84.8%. The pass rate for first time takers was 87.5%. The pass rate for second time takers was 30%. The pass rate for third time takers was 42%.

For those keeping track, here was the statistics from last year: The pass rate was 88.6%. The pass rate for first time takers was 90.5%. The pass rate for second time takers was 46.7. The pass rate for third time takers was 33.3%. The overall pass rate went down by 2% and the first time pass rate went down by 3%. It seems like many states’ pass rates are down by about 2 -4% pass rate – was it the MBE that is bringing the pass rates down?

Let’s move on the MBE pass rates coming out of Missouri.

For the overall takers, the MBE average was 143.22. For first time takers, the MBE average was 144.12 For second time takers, the MBE average was 125. 11. For the third time takers, the MBE average was 128.25. The total average was 143.51.

Here are the statistics from last year: For first time takers, the MBE average was 146.89. For second time takers, the MBE average was 129.05. For the third time takers, the MBE average was 126.43. The total average was 146.01.

There you have it – a clear 2-3% difference from last year. The MBE does appear to be lower this year.

Federal Civil Procedure, the February 2015 Bar Exam, and the Bar Professors Seminars and Tutorials on the MBE and Federal Civil Procedure

Please look at our seminars, MBE programs and Bar Exam Tutors at www.barprofessors.com.

The MBE has undergone a dramatic reconstruction with Federal Civil Procedure to be tested starting on the February 2015 MBE. The exam will add 27 multiple-choice questions in the area of Federal Civil Procedure, while the remaining subjects will be reduced to 27 questions each, with contracts, having 28 questions. The total number of questions tested will be 200. This change is the most significant in the last 30 years. These changes will present new challenges for the repeat bar taker in strategy, approach, preparation and test taking techniques. In response, Bar Professors has redesigned its instructional delivery, addressing this important subject in its curriculum development. This addition and reapproach will help the repeat taker be most effective on the MBE. For Federal Civil Procedure, 75% of the questions will cover: jurisdiction and venue, pretrial procedures and motions and 25% of the questions address federal courts, appeals and review, jury trials and verdicts and judgments. This addition to our MBE Program will include:

A detailed outline addressing tested areas
• One-on-one instructional tutorial
• Federal Civil Procedure multiple-choice questions
• Feedback on factual and legal analysis that “turn” the call of the question
• Specific test taking techniques unique to Federal Civil Procedure

Bar Professors has created a specific program for its students addressing this newly tested subject. Please go to our website, http://www.barprofessors.com for more information.

In addition, Bar Professors will be conducting MBE seminars, with special emphasis on Federal Civil Procedure, in the fall. Please go to our website, http://www.barprofessors.com to sign up for these important and valuable seminars.

An MBE Tutor is so important to the repeat taker. Bar Professors can help you overcome the difficulty of the MBE test and help you to a successful score.
