The Ohio Bar Exam: Its First UBE Exam is Off to a Rough Start

Bar Professors Provides Private/Online Tutoring for Repeat Takers for the UBE, North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, New York and California.

Previously, the Supreme Court of Ohio had announced that it would begin using the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) beginning in July 2020. This would have been the first time the UBE was tested in Ohio. The passing score was set at a high 270.

However, with Covid-19 spreading across the United States, the Supreme Court of Ohio announced on May 13 that its first UBE exam will be postponed until September 9-10. At the time of Ohio’s decision to move its bar exam, approximately 18 or 19 states had cancelled their July bar exams and settled for that September 9th date to begin their own bar exam.

But, even in a few short months, the coronavirus situation has caused some states to change once again. State after state seems to be abandoning its plans to have an in person test on September 9-10.  New York is the latest state to cancel its bar exam scheduled for September 9-10. Many are calling for a diploma privilege.

Many states are moving towards an on-line exam starting on October 5th.  Will Ohio follow this trend?

Nevertheless, it is always tough for repeat takers to start all over again with a new kind of bar exam. The passing score of 270 is on the high end of UBE scores. With the coronavirus in full swing, it’s even tougher.  A Bar Professors tutor can set up a study plan with you, discuss areas of the bar exam materials that you are not getting and keep you motivated and less isolating. Bar Professors provides one-on-one substantive lectures on all subjects with practice questions and critiques, and methods and procedures to improve your essay and MBE scores.

Bar Professors has an extensive 4 volume book set for Florida, California and the UBE, This 4 volume set was written by attorneys and law professors who are experts in law and the bar exam.
