Congratulations on passing the J19 UBE bar exam. Based on your scaled MBE score of 156, your estimated raw MBE score was about 137/175 correct (based on the last time an MBE scale was released in 2013). This means you answered about 78.3% of the graded MBE questions correctly. While you were 78.7% percentile for the J19 exam, you are in the 79.9% percentile for the MBE based on national data for the past seven July exams (to give you a smoother estimation of where you stand nationally).nrthwst4now wrote:Hi Joe -
Could you help me understand how my score stacks up?
MBE: 156 (was told in results this was the 78.7 percentile)
Based on a total score of 323, your written score was 166.7, which would have placed you in the 94.5% percentile among examinees nationwide (meaning that 5.5% of examinees nationwide would have scored better than you on the MEE/MPT).
Although NCBE does not release percentiles for total UBE scores, if I average your MBE and written percentiles, this would place you in the 87.2% percentile among examinees nationwide based on your total score of 323 (meaning that 12.8% of examinees nationwide scored better than you on the UBE). Please keep in mind this is just an estimate and may be incorrect.
On the MBE, examinees usually score close to their MBE practice scores, especially if they have done a large number of MBE questions in practice. How many questions did you answer in practice, from what sources (e.g. Barbri, Kaplan, Adaptibar, NCBE) and what was your overall % correct?
