Yes they have. They even keep their own curve relative to the takers in that jurisdiction even though it's the same exam. Wish I had done more jurisdiction shopping when I found this out.

Based on the above article it would seem that the UMBE is graded by NCBE, and states grade the MEE, and MPT. Then the MEE and MPT scores are scaled to the MBE and UBE total scores are calculated by NCBE. So it would seem that each jurisdiction still controls its "pass rate" based on how they want to score the written half of the test each year. :?

If true, why have a transportable UBE score?

I read an article where someone was complaining that the UBE being graded thusly will lead to "forum shopping."

The markets aren't connected. States get a benefit by getting to control admission by subjectively grading their written exams; NCBE makes money promoting it's "multistate" exam; and grads are happy to have a test transferable to different states because of the shitty job market.
