NCBE's COVID-19 Response: Remote Bar

Post by AdminMegan » Wed Jun 03, 2020 1:27 pm

The NCBE released an update on June 1st, stating they will provide a limited set of questions (MBE, MEE, MPT) to states for an emergency remote testing option for local admission during the COVID-19 crisis. The shortened bar exam will be offered on October 5th and 6th. The shortened bar will also be offered for remote administration after the September Bar Exam has occurred, and will be offered only if an in-person bar exam is not possible.

The NCBE has stated: "This remote testing option will not constitute the full bar exam or the UBE. Scores earned on the remotely administered test will be used for local admission decisions only, and will not qualify as UBE scores. The scores will not be eligible to be transferred as UBE or MBE scores to other jurisdictions or released to candidates via NCBE Score Services."
