MBE Scoring: Your Midterm and Final
The national raw score average for the Midterm MBE was around 115. On the actual exam, your raw score will be scaled, a statistical method that usually adds between 10 and 20 points to the raw score.
The national raw score average for the Final MBE Practice Exam was 120. Again, on the actual exam, your raw score will be scaled, adding between 10 and 20 points to the raw score.
For the MBE exam, we usually recommend that you aim to get about two-thirds (67%) of the questions correct. This gives you a cushion; in case you fall a little short of that goal, you will still likely be in passing range, given adequate performance on other sections of your bar exam.
Your Final MBE score is a status report of where you are in terms of your ultimate goal and a tool for improving your Exam-day performance. As Professor Chris Fromm points out in his Final Review videos, a purposeful review of the Final Practice Exam's questions should itself add several points to your Exam-day performance. Indeed, learning to avoid some common pitfalls or gaining insight into a 'Big Ticket Item' can translate into significant improvement. So, even if you are below the 120 average, you are on track to succeed if you can hone in on those extra 10 to 20 points that every one of you can find by working through the Final Review sessions, using your Final Study Plan (which will appear after you complete the Final Review) and staying focused over this last week of study. Good luck! The entire Kaplan Bar Review team is looking forward to celebrating your success!
Wait, when the hell was the Final Practice exam? I still have lectures (and only an optional "Practice Exam" scheduled for next week)! Did I miss something? Or is everyone else just on a much different schedule?
Many people have not taken the Final or interim final exams yet based on their Schedules. Don't worry!!!! I assume this is based on historical finals and person's whose schedules have had them already taking the Final...
I just wanted to post this generally in case people didn't see it on Kap's website.
