I consistently am hitting low 60% on MBE questions and did pretty poorly on the simulated MBE. I'm finding it really hard to keep going though despite knowing that slacking off here could easily result in my failing. Just really really exhausted of it all at this point. I don't know this stuff well enough and this last week is going to kill me.
But isn't low 60% pretty alright, statistically speaking? The barbri average was 61-62% correct on the simulated MBE. That puts you right in average territory, which is far from failing! They said somewhere you should only be worried if you are in the bottom 20% (I guess suggesting they have around a 80% pass rate?).
Pretty sure you'll be fine provided your essays are half decent.
60% was above average for the barbri simulates exam. 58% was average and even people with below average scores pass. You're in good shape
My state's minimum passing score is 284. The last three exams have had 64%, 65%, and 66% passage rates. I need to score somewhere around the national median to pass (and I was hoping my MBE would make up for sucking at essays).
