I passed - 338/168.3.

My Themis stats overall, IIRC were:

Overall MBE MCQ: 75%

Practice exams ranged from 71-80% (so in line with MBE MCQ average).

Graded essays were mostly 4 and 5s with a few 6s.

I'm new here. I sat for the bar in July/took Themis. I got a 257/9 points shy of the pass score in NY. I am finding this immensely painful to do again and dont know what I should do precisely because I was so close to passing and I'm not sure what I should maybe spend extra time on this time around. I have all the lecture handouts filled out from the summer so I've been re-listening at accelerated speed and my assessments suggest that I'm doing fine listening to lectures in that manner. So, any tips or suggestions on how to not drive myself insane and up my score would be incredibly greatly appreciated.

...Seriously, this is painful.


I understand your pain, I was in a similar boat. It took me 3 attempts to pass both parts.

1st Attempt - 132.4 /112.7 = 245
2nd Attempt - 137.4/119.5 = 257
3rd Attempt - MEE only 133.9

Tips that helped me:

I used Kaplan.

1. Used the pre MBE test to identify areas where I was weak in understanding the law. Did a review of the law in every key area, with an increased focus in my weak areas.

2. Studied theory first then did practice MBEs

3. Brought actual MBE test questions from NCBE website

4. Reviewed all wrong answers & spent time studying tge rationales.

5. After studying & doing MBE’s, I did practice MEEs.

6. Brought practice essay questions from NCBE.

7. On last bar attempt, I switched from CRAC to IRAC. Also practiced writing my answers exactly like in sample essays from NCBE website.

I hope this helps.

I will be taking the bar in July and I am using Themis. I was wondering, does anyone who took Themis in the past have any of the lecture fill in the blank outlines already filled in (I find those really helpful because of the examples but some of the videos can be difficult to get through)-if so could you PM them to me. Also, if any of you have any other suggestions for the MBE I would really appreciate that as well (I am in a UBE state) (what did you find was the best way to study for the MBE- i.e. watch lectures then do practice problems, not watch the lectures and just do practice problems? Thanks for the help.
