Some States Consider Lowering Pass Scores on the Bar Exam


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

Several states are considering lowering pass scores on bar exam, making it easier to pass for students and, perhaps, addressing racial diversity problems and access-to-justice issues that have been entrenched in the legal profession.

First it was California who lowered its passing score on the bar exam. Now, Rhode Island has followed California’s lead in lowering the bar exam pass score to make the test easier to pass, a step that several other states are also considering.

The Rhode Island Supreme Court lowered the score needed to pass the bar exam from 276 to 270 and made the change retroactive to the February 2021 exam, following the recommendation of the state’s board of bar examiners.

Many states are considering a lower cut score in hopes that will increase access to justice and lawyer diversity.

The passing scores are not uniform, even in the 38 states that use the UBE. The passing scores in these states range from 260 to 280. The passing score is determined by state courts and bar exam authorities.

If you have failed the bar exam or are a foreign educated student, Bar Professors will help you. We have developed our virtual  programs for all students who will take the February or July bar exam. We are a one-on-one tutoring program that is remotely based, by telephone, by facetime, by Skype. We can help all repeat takers and foreign educated lawyers pass the bar exam.

Bar Professors has an extensive 3 volume book set for Florida, California and the UBE. This 3 volume set was written by attorneys and law professors who are experts in law and the bar exam.
