This started happening once they put your score results in your accounts after the pass list was released, so I think that's what that is.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow. If you pass, awesome! Enjoy that! If you don't, take a moment to absorb that information because believe me I know, it sucks, but don't give up! :D

Even better: 670-674 gets an automatic regrade, and for the past several years all the auto-regrades have passed (because in regrading they can only add points for each question; they can't subtract points)

Are you sure about that? I thought if you got an auto-regrade, you wouldn't even know it.

That is true.

TXLawHopeful15 wrote:Seriously? Where did you hear that?


I've seen it in a number of places, but here's one I can put my hand on: http://www.ble.state.tx.us/ExaminationI ... 202013.pdf

REREAD AND PASS/FAIL RULES AND THEIR EFFECTS

Applicants with a total scale score of 675 or higher pass while those with total scores below 669 fail. All other applicants have all 12 of their essay answers, their MPT answer, and all of their P&E answers read again, but by the Board member who supervised the initial reader on the respective questions.

The re-readers may add but not subtract from the score the initial reader assigned to an answer. . . .

Texas passed every applicant in its reread zone on the Feburary and July 2013 bar exams. . . . Texas also passed almost every applicant in reread on its other recent bar exams. In short, Texas could eliminate reread entirely if it just passed everyone in the reread zone (and announced the passing score in Texas was [6]70 on the texas scale (and 134 on the MBE scale).

Image

It is not entirely clear why every (or almost every) applicant in reread passed. It could be due to: (a) the re-readers being more liberal in their grading than the initial readers, (b) the re-readers being influenced by the grades assigned by the initial readers, (c) some function of the rounding rules, or (d) som combination of these or other factors. The only way ot find the cause is to have a large set of answers graded again but by readers who are "blinded" to the scores assigned by the first batch of readers.

One of my friends said that he was 3 points short of passing. So I guess he was part of those few that just did t get enough points in the re-reading

According to the data set, everyone who gets the re-reading passes. So your friend was likely more than three points short -- maybe eight points if you wanna be technical.

Good vibes to everyone. No matter what result comes your way tomorrow, this too shall pass. :")

So, I came out with some friends, posted on Facebook for a bit, and I still feel inadequate. Less than 11 hours, and I don't have anything left but my faith. May, we all reap the fruits of our labor soon. . .

I slept surprisingly poorly last night. (Surprisingly because I've slept very well post-bar up until now).

Indeed. I even double checked to make sure you'd adjusted your clock this week.

It looks like they came out at 1:49 PM this past February. So between 1:00 and 2:00 it looks like.

That's what I'm thinking too but I'm sure I'll end up glued to my computer starting at 12 anyway
