There’s a banner at the top of the website with flashing announcements. It’s there. Took me a minute to find it. For some reason I thought the results came out ten weeks after the exam. Not sure where on earth I got that from.

Where did you find that they are coming out today or tomorrow?

This is my 3rd MPRE. Failed the first one due to surgery scheduled just before the exam, and being on painkillers. Passed the second, and had to take again to practice in a second state. Did Themis for videos, outline, and practice questions/test, and did Barmax and Kaplan practice questions. Passed with a 123, needed an 80. I may have over-studied, but it's better than the alternative. Congrats, everyone who passed, and to those who didn't, you'll get it next time.

To anyone looking at this in the future, practice questions, with review of why you got correct/incorrect answers was the most helpful to me. I read the outline once all the way through, and reviewed sections based on areas I was consistently missing questions in. I watched the videos, and made my own outline.

I'm a foreign attorney. Took the MPRE for the first time. I used Kaplan. Watched the lecture, read the outline and took the 4 practice tests whilst driving down the 101 highway and did 80 of the practice questions. Needed 86 and got 105.

You did all your studying while driving?

That's a little scary.

Half ass studied for 3-4 days after work before MPRE and got a 98. Not really sure how you can fail. I am not one who got a high lsat either. I felt like I practically guessed on 70% of the MPRE and I still got a 98.

Nope :cry


I PASSED!! I received a notice of certification from the Board of Examiners today, indicating that I've now passed all three exams (NYBX, NYLE and MPRE). However, I can't seem to find anything from the NCBE or anyone else about my MPRE score. I'm interested...

Anyone know where to get that? Or maybe we'll just receive an email over the next day or so...?

Glad I checked this thread, because it prompted me to look and see how I did. I got a 108. I did two Themis practice sections the night before and printed the outline and studied for ~25 mins while we were waiting to go in the room.

For people who are taking the second bar, I definitely felt like just looking at some practice questions and the answers was enough to get the job done.

Score of 123

I took Themis for California Bar Preparation (waiting on those results, yikes!) and got a free MPRE prep course with the bar review course. I read the outline twice and completed all of the practice tests twice. It was worth the effort. California requires a score of 86 and I got a 123. I am already licensed in Texas (many moons ago) and the California Bar made me take the MPRE again because I could not produce a copy (as in a paper copy) of my previous MPRE score when I became licensed in Texas.

Anyway, I was very nervous about the score. On exam day, a fellow test take was thrown out of my class (literally) for some undisclosed violation and the frakas kinda messed up my mojo. AAAAAAnd, I received a parking ticket at the testing location. And when I saw my score of 123, I didn't think I passed because I thought it was based on a percentage - so paranoia ensued. For the entire morning, I was moping around thinking I did not pass. I was already checking for the next test date, etc. Then I checked the California Bar website and it indicated I had a passing score. So, tumultuous day for me, but it ended well. I highly recommend Themis for the MPRE study materials. Good luck to all!

Congrats! I took Themis as well and thought it was quite good. Got a 111.
