I know for a fact that Feb 2016 was a Tuesday night (email). A co-worker just showed me the email. Says 11:43pm.



I will say ONE thing I know from having failed this sucker. Pass emails come out BEFORE fail emails. I got my "you failed" emails around 12:30am-1:00am.

I am not saying it will ALWAYS work this way. But in my last 3 swings and misses at this, that has been the case. I can only speak to my experience!


No I got my failed email at 11:38!

either bole lied or your co worker email lied.


"The Board examined 4,193 candidates during
the two days of testing conducted on February 23-24, 2016. Candidates received electronic
notification of their examination results earlier today." -> April 26th (tuesday).

Do you think the experimental 25 MBE will help or hurt us?

I'm just so worried about the essays. Corporation essay was tough

This was not the case for J16. I received my fail email at the exact same moment that my friend received his pass email.

Well then I spoke too soon! That was my experience, but again, as is with this, you an only speak of your experience! Truly, no formula.

Great question. I've been wondering about this myself. I would love some concrete, scientific study to help determine how this effects us.

if you want some great answers. Try searching. A lot of people did great analysis on their thoughts on that question.

Also, the Corps essay was tough as well as the Trusts essay. The rest were manageable, and I believe the contracts essay was very straight forward.

No I know, I'm not debating that - I'm saying what if we focus on the dates (public release 26th or 28th, meaning email release 25th or 27th) rather than the days of the week (Tuesday/Thursday) of previous email releases

For those who took J16, do you feel that the MBE for F16 was easier, harder, or about the same?

I'm caught in the middle. The F17 morning session was quite fair IMO, whereas the afternoon session was more difficult with peculiar questions.

How do you know your MBE score already? Did you also take it in another jurisdiction

Depends where you are on the curve. It is the trick NCBE use to boost the median score. More experimental question makes it harder to achieve high score, but it also make it harder to get low score.

I think it will be tonight to have the public release date on an even day, the 26th.
