February vs July MBE Calculator

The following calculator will estimate your scaled MBE score based on the raw score you enter. The scaled scores are based on an average of scaled scores from prior New York bar exams. The Est. scaled MBE score on a July NY bar exam is based on the average scaled July MBE score from July 2002-July 2006 along with July 2013. These are the six most recent July exams that the bar examiners released raw and scaled MBE scores. The Est. scaled MBE score on a February NY bar exam is based on the average scaled February MBE score from February 2004-February 2006 along with February 2013. These are the four most recent February exams that the bar examiners released raw and scaled MBE scores. Please note that the accuracy of this calculator diminishes with extremely high or low scores.

Please also note the pre-2013 scales were based on 200 questions - whether the scale is looser or tighter based on the currently graded 175 questions, I don't know. This article on the LSAT seems to suggest a test with fewer questions has a tighter (or smaller) scale. However, the scale for the February and July 2013 New York MBEs (the only NY exams to release raw scores based on 190 graded MBE questions rather than 200) had very loose scales compared to other February/July administrations based on 200 MBE questions. Accordingly, the estimated scale may be somewhat different, but I don't know how different, or in which direction.

I also create accurate score calculators based on prior exams to allow examinees to test various scoring scenarios and estimate their upcoming exam performance (e.g. if you are sitting for the J19 exam, you should experiment with the J18 calculator). In addition, my Seperac UBE Score Estimator will give you a good idea of your odds of passing based on the demographic and grade information you enter.

If you failed the UBE exam, I can provide you with a free 15 page confidential analysis of your scoring along with my advice. I've helped over 4,500 examinees with these free analysis reports. If you also have your written answers, I can provide you with a free 43 page MEE/MPT Analysis which will tell you a number of useful things such as how well you issue spotted. More information regarding this report is here. If you are in a non-UBE state (e.g. California), while I can't send you a score report, I can give you a breakdown of your MBE subscores. If you recently took the UBE exam and think you may not have passed, there is a post-exam form for examinees. Filling out this form immediately after you take the exam (while the information is still fresh in your mind) can help you later. For example, using this information, I track the key details of your attempt, so if you later find that you failed the exam, I will try to match your responses/statistics to whoever previously submitted the most comparable details (and later passed) to give you their advice on what worked for them. All information submitted is treated confidentially.
