I think it's for those attending unaccredited law schools. As for what that correlates with, I leave that as an exercise for the reader. The file is here and it is grim: https://admissions.calbar.ca.gov/Portal ... 2015_R.pdf
Or, if you just want to take it. Not sure why the fuck you'd do that to yourself, but clearly people have. Is there any other benefit??? Because it looks like 14 students took it 'because why the fuck not'.
But, to piggy back, there will likely be no relevant correlation because of the vast majority of CBX takers are ABA and CA accredited (totaling 88% last July) and not unaccredited schools for which the 1st year exam is targeted. And, of the people that took the 1st Year Student's Exam, only 5% of the 272 were ABA or CA accredited. To put that into even greater perspective, approximately 0.26% of CBX takers from an ABA or CA accredited school likely actually took the 1st Year Bar Exam.
Basically, stats from the 1st year student exam mean fuck all--IMHO
