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. This is especially true for repeat taker pass rates.  Alabama’s repeat taker rate was only 14%, Pennsylvania’s repeat taker pass rate for 3 time takers was 26%, 4th time takers were 21%,  Colorado’s repeat taker rate was 28%. The drop on the MBE score has hurt repeat takers the most.
