I had a 95 Barbri midterm score and passed. Barbri's statement that you increase your MBE score by 15-20 points was spot on.
The MBE has hard as shit for everyone, but as long as you nailed the essays you will be good!
Congrats! Which state? Are your MBE and essays weighed equally?
I got a 95 on the Barbri midterm, a 105 on the PMBR one. I'm so nervous. I took two bars....I need a total of 270 on one and 276 on the other!
I took PA which weighs the MBE at 45% and the essays/performance test at 55%. PA requires 272. If you left essay day feeling good, you'll be fine. The essay graders want to give you points. BarBri was on point when they said you can pick points there.
Thank you. I need a 270 for MA and it's weighed 50-50 between the MBE and essays. I need a 276 for RI. RI's breakdown: MBE is 50%, the MPT is 9%, and the essays are 41%. I left the essay day feeling really great. I left the MBE thinking that it was hard. I had a lot of D's during the AM session, especially in the first column. I am upset with myself because I had to guess on some of the final questions, especially in the first session, so I literally bubbled in all B's for at least 10 answers before time was called. What would someone need to get on the essays, if weighed equally, to pass IF I got a lower MBE score? Also, is it possible to know by how many points the MBE was scaled? I'm not sure whether it's scaled nationally or by state...
