The July 2018 Bar Exam: Repeat Florida Bar Exam Takers: A Review of Your Bar Exam Scores

The Florida bar exam results have come out and all the repeat takers have gotten their letter telling them the breakdown of the scores. Here is the way the grading is done in Florida.

Grading the Florida Bar Exam

The MBE & Florida sections are weighted equally on the Florida Bar Exam. A combined weighted score of 136 is required to pass the Florida Bar Exam. It doesn’t matter if your score in one section or the other is below the 136 – it’s the average score that matters. You can fail the FL or the MBE section and still pass the FL bar exam if your overall score is at least 136.

Each examination paper produced by an applicant on the General Bar Examination will be separately graded. The sum of the converted section scores is the total score for Part A. MBE scores (Part B) are the scaled scores on the MBE provided by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. On the Florida portion of the bar, each essay is worth 100 points for a 300 point total. The multiple choice questions are worth 100 points total, so each question is approximately 1 point each. There are usually 10 experimental questions. The average essay score is around 40 points, requiring you to get your remaining points on the multiple choice questions.

Depending on the difficulty of the essay question and the average grade, the Board of Bar Examiners may adjust your score either downward or upward. The Board does not adjust the multiple choice questions – there are what they are and the point totals do not change.

Review your bar scores and ask yourself how you can improve your scores when you retake the bar exam in February. Obtaining a Bar Professors Florida bar exam tutor will help you pass. Many students who are repeat bar takers need a bar exam coach to help them improve their writing and analytical skills so they can properly navigate through the Florida bar exam. Remember, the Florida bar exam is unique and more difficult to pass than other jurisdictions. This structured, personalized program is the key to passing the bar for repeat takers.

The July 2018 Bar Exam: Retaining a Bar Professors Florida Bar Exam Tutor for Repeat Takers



Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

We have been talking with students since Monday. The questions we’ve been asked more frequently is “what should I do if I was unsuccessful on the Florida Bar Exam?” First, let the shock of failing the bar subside with a few days of reflection. Clearly, this may be one of your greatest disappointments, but don’t let it control or define who you are. You can pass the bar exam in February 2019. Get right back up and say, “I will pass in February 2019.”

Ok, now let’s start. Do not repeat the same class, study plan or approach you used the last time. It did not work. Coming close on the bar is good only in horse shoes. One size does not fit all. Hard work and having a study plan and study strategy will pay off. Say to yourself, “I will be a lawyer.”

You want to get the bar exam behind you and start your new life as a lawyer. Don’t dither or waste time with the “what ifs”. Stay focused and true to your goal to pass.

Obtaining a Bar Professors Florida bar exam tutor will help you pass. Many students who are repeat bar takers need a bar exam coach to help them improve their writing and analytical skills so they can properly navigate through the Florida bar exam. Remember, the Florida bar exam is unique and more difficult to pass than other jurisdictions. This structured, personalized program is the key to passing the bar for repeat takers.

Above all, never give up.

The July 2018 Bar Exam: MBE Scores Sink to 34-Year Low, Resulting in Lower Pass Rates for Some States


Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

It doesn’t look good for bar exam results July’s bar exam cycle.

The average score on the MBE hit a recent low in February, and now the average for the July 2018 test has dropped more than two points to the lowest figure since 1984.

The NCBE announced that the average score on the MBE in July fell 2.2 points to 139.5.  The 2.2-point drop in the July 2018 average MBE score comes on the heels of a 10-year low for the February 2018 exam. That average MBE score fell 1.3 points, to 132.8.

That’s just slightly higher than 1984’s MBE average of 139.21. The average MBE score suggests that pass rates will fall, or at least not improve, for July 2018 results.

There have been some upticks in some states, but generally, lower performance and bar passage is expected, according to the NCBE, especially with this lower MBE score.

In Florida, 67% of July takers passed, down from 71% a year ago. In Indiana, 62% of July takers passed, down from 66% the previous year. 86% of first-time takers in Iowa passed, down from 88%. Missouri’s pass rate was 76%, down from nearly 85% a year ago.

As we know, repeat takers fail the bar at higher rates than first-time takers. The drop on the MBE score will hurt repeat takers the most.  Repeat takers need every point they can get.

The July 2018 Bar Exam: The Weekend Wait for the Florida Bar Exam Results



Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

The Florida Bar Exam Results for July 2018 will come out on Monday, September 17th. There is no magical time it comes out, although the results usually come out in the morning, usually close to 9 am.

Florida releases the numbers, not the names of the applicants and the site reveals just pass or fail of both Part A (the Florida section) and Part B (the MBE section) and the overall pass or fail. When you look up your number there will be 4 columns: your number, pass, pass, pass. The last pass is your ticket for your law license. You can fail a section of the Florida bar, and with enough carry over points, you can pass overall. So you will see some scores, like fail, pass, pass or pass, fail, pass. That’s ok, because that applicant has passed the Florida bar exam. Look at the final column and you’ll know whether you passed or failed.

The Florida Board of Bar Examiners also releases the passing rate of the law schools a bit later. The Florida Board of Bar Examiners releases the passing rate of the law school to the law school first. Florida only releases the first time taker rate and not the repeat takers rate, and not the overall pass rate. Good luck to all Florida takers!

The July 2018 Bar Exam: Charlotte Law School’s Settlement and Passing the Bar Exam



Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

Good news for the students at Charlotte School of Law. Charlotte School of Law will pay former students $2.65 million under a proposed class-action settlement.

The school and student plaintiffs on Tuesday asked a federal judge in North Carolina to preliminarily approve the class and the settlement, saying it was the best deal the students could hope to achieve given the dire financial circumstances of the shuttered school and its parent company, InfiLaw Corp.  The judge granted preliminary approval yesterday. The class-action settlement would end 4 federal suits and 90 state court suits.

Charlotte School of Law ran a net $8 million deficit in 2017, the year it closed. InfiLaw lost more than $7 million in 2017 and $6 million through June 2018. The settlement consists of the $2.5 million left from the school’s insurance policy, as well as $150,000 directly from InfiLaw.

Now, let Bar Professors help graduates of Charlotte Law School pass the bar exam.  Contact us today and let us help you pass the UBE in February. Don’t wait, you need every day to get you over the finish line.
