I didn't know the rules on a few sub-parts and either made something up or said something vaguely relevant. Trying to prepare myself for whatever is coming. I did OK on the barbri mbe, but the real thing felt awful.
I mean there are so many variables out there. What level of issue did you miss, how much you wrote on the issues you did get, what your NYMC/MPT were, how bored your grader was. No way to know.
What was your MBE?
The NYMC was a disaster, I probably did little better than guessing. Some were educated guesses, most not. MPT was fine to my knowledge. My practice MBE was around 125.
I wrote a decent amount on the issues I knew, but I'm not great at essays. I guess I'm trying to figure out what a passing effort is on the essays with an average MBE. I tried the seperac calculator but I don't know what quality of answers translates to what scores.
