For February 2017, the pass rate was 57.7%. This number is not reflective of repeat takers. In fact, the repeat takers pass rate was much, much lower. Unfortunately, Florida statistics do not include repeat takers, but we know, from states who do publish those statistics, the repeat bar exam taker rate is abysmal. As an example, yesterday, Missouri released its statistics and for those repeat takers who took the bar 3 or more times, the pass rate was only 32%, down 40% points from first time taker pass rate. In Pennsylvania, the first time taker pass rate was 72%, 2nd time: 53%, 3rd time: 25%, 4 or more times, 23%. We can see that the pass rate drops for each successive time a taker fails the bar exam.

Also, we can see that the average MBE scores goes dramatically down for repeat takers. Let’s take a look at the Missouri statistics. The average MBE score for 1st time takers was 137, For 2nd time takers, the MBE score was 128.5, and for 3 or more takers, the score was 123.5. As we know, every point counts in the MBE and in passing the bar exam.
Since Florida’s pass rate was only 57.7%, we can extrapolate the repeat bar taker pass rate and it is too horrible to contemplate. Why risk this result again? Ask yourself where you would be if you failed again in July?
