Also, does anyone have a source/resource that somehow lists the subjects in order of difficulty? It doesn't seem like NCBE publishes score breakdowns by topic.

Constitutional Law - 71% correct on average
Torts - 67% correct on average
Contracts - 65% correct on average
Criminal Law and Procedure - 63% correct on average
Evidence - 61% correct on average
Real Property - 60% correct on average
Overall - 64% correct on average
One reason Real Property was the hardest subject between 1995-2004 was because they were the longest questions and examinees typically do worse on longer MBE questions. However, over the past few years, it appears NCBE is trying to make the MBE questions more uniform in regards to length and difficulty. For example, while the difference between the best and worst MBE subject between 1995-2004 was 11% (Con Law 71% vs Property 60%), I calculated the difference between the best and worst MBE subject in J19 to be 4% (Evidence 71% vs CivPro 67%). Please keep in mind that my estimate for J19 may or may not be reliable, so take it with a grain of salt.
