The February 2013 Bar Exam Results: The MBE

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

We have seen how the MBE has “shaken” out for the February 2013 bar exam.

The average raw score for the MBE subjects is:
Evidence: 19.03 out of 33
Const. Law: 19.17 out of 33
Property: 19.63 out of 33
Contracts: 20.06 out of 34
Criminal Law/Pro: 20.07 out of 33
Torts: 21.25 out of 34

I have put the average raw score in order of hardest to easiest. As we can see this February, 2013, the hardest subjects were evidence and constitutional law; the easiest subjects were criminal law/procedure and torts. It is a surprise to see constitutional law as one of the harder subjects. In addition, from what my students told me, property did not have many future interests or mortgage questions, which was a great relief to many and pushed property into the middle range of the subjects (when it usually the hardest subject).

The average range for all the subjects is from 58% to 62.5%. These are the numbers you should be reaching when you practice your MBE questions.

It appears that the scaled score this year fits within the usual range of 12-15 extra points, depending on where you fall for the raw score. That is consistent with prior years.

If you are taking the MBE again, you will have to change your approach, strategy and preparation to pass. Try a new approach with Bar Professors. Our new cross training approach with concentration on factual distinctions in the MBE fact pattern versus the traditional method of legal extraction has increased many MBE repeat takers scores by as much as 20%. Give yourself a fighting chance to pass the bar exam in your state by improving your MBE score. Whether you are from North Carolina, Illinois, Wisconsin or any other state, Bar Professors can help you improve your MBE score.
