Ugh I finished in two hours but still had a bunch I wasn't sure about. I'm really really bad at the mbe so I'm assuming this is a bad sign and I probably got the easy one in the morning session and the hard one is still coming my way. Uuuugh I hate the mbe.

100% positive I failed and it's only halfway over. Completely fucked up the PT yesterday, and guess on over half of today's questions. I can't do this shit again.

1. nerves
2. you only remember the hard ones, and not the easy ones
3. you cannot immediately grade like you are used to, so you've never had to deal with this before

just keep that in mind.


repost! It's a normal feeling, and you'll all end up doing better than you did on the Barbri questions. It only feels harder -- it isn't actually.

Dude if you failed it means the statewide pass rate was like 5%. So either you passed or it was so hard as to lead to a complete revolution. In other words, you passed.

I feel like I narrowed every question to two and then picked the wrong one. Hate myself and want to die.

That first half was amazingly difficult. Second half was as expected, but tricky.

Second half was noticeably easier but not easy. A lot of minor distinctions between answers.

That is how I felt. There were still many that I was torn between, and not torn between because of exam stress. Legitimately torn between.

Yeah, that was really hard. I don't understand the point of testing on such fine distinctions on a test where there's no reason to distinguish between average and elite performers btw. WTF. It's just cruel.

I thought that was tough. The last 25 or so of my set were complicated. Thought the afternoon session as a whole was easier.

Not sure of the average MBE score for my jurisdiction. I'm hoping I came out with about 70% correct.

That whole thing was horrible. There was no easy half, and most of the questions were as hard or harder than Barbri's.

Obviously premature, but do we ever find out how we did on MBE // state section or do they just tell us pass/fail?

Also I had sooo many of the same answer in a row. Very unnerving.

You must be feeling pretty good if you think you got 70% correct. I got 155/200 on Barbri's simulated MBE and 83/100 on the refresher. If I had to guess, I would say I'm confident I answered 30% right today.

Anybody notice 2 or so questions almost identical to ones we discussed on here?

Maybe it's just me, but I felt like almost all of barbri/Guzman's tips were worthless. It's like the questions were written to avoid them being helpful.

Oh well, we're done!! And my state will only tell me if I pass or not, so I wouldn't even know how well or poorly I did on the MBE.
