OPE as compared to actual Bar Exam

Post by seasidemama » Fri Jun 03, 2016 12:33 pm

For tests 1-4 available, those of you who have taken the bar - do you feel the opes are comparable in difficulty to recent administrations?

What did you score on the opes and what was your score on game day?

Just did OPE 1 (will be 1st time taker) and did pretty well - wondering if I should be cautiously optimistic..

Been getting ~69% on adaptibar and did considerably better on the OPE - are adaptibar q's really that much more difficult?

The released questions are MUCH easier than the questions on the actual exam (remember, the NCBE is not in the process of making your life easy). Kaplan has questions that are the closest in level of difficulty to the ones on the exam.

so you're saying they take the easy 100 questions of 190 administered and distribute as opes?

Yep. For exam, they released practice Civ Pro questions. I got about 75% of them correct. Then, when I took the bar, I got curb stomped on that section. Fortunately, my stronger subjects (Torts, Crim) compensated for that performance.
