## New York February 2018 UBE Bar Exam Score Calculator

NOTE: An improved version of this calculator is here. The improved version allows you to choose from multiple exams to allow you to see the different scales between exams.

The following calculator will accurately estimate a Total Score for the February 2018 New York UBE bar exam administration based on the scores you enter. There is no need to enter your Written Score - the calculator will calculate it for you. You can use this calculator to test various scoring scenarios (as one F18 examinee told me: "I probably spent 1/10 of my bar prep time on your site attempting to predict my score"). The default scores in the calculator are the average scores sent to me by failing examinees so far. For the F18 NY MEE and MPT, you would have earned a score of about 22 if you wrote nothing, a score of 52 if you wrote an exactly passing essay/MPT, and a score of 80 if your essay/MPT was one of the NYBOLE released above average answer exemplars. Although this calculator is for the NY UBE, if you took the UBE in another state and send me your scores, I can make a calculator for that state.

NOTE: If you are taking the upcoming UBE exam, I recently created the Seperac UBE Score Estimator which will estimate your UBE bar exam score based on the demographic and grade information you enter.

According to NYBOLE, the scaled score for each of the six MEE questions and two MPT questions are arrived at by converting the raw score for each question to a scale that generally ranges from approximately 20 to 80, with 50 as the mean. The candidate's MEE scores are totaled and divided by six, the MPT scores are totaled and divided by two and the resultant scores are added together to arrive at the average scale score for the written section. In computing the average scale score the MEE is weighted 60% and the MPT is weighted 40%. That average is then converted to a score distribution that is comparable to that of the MBE. The resulting figure is the candidate's total written score. A candidate's final examination score is determined by combining the written and MBE scores. The MBE scale is based on 190 graded questions. A combined score of at least 266 on a 400 point scale is required to pass the New York bar examination (66.5%). The MEE and MPT answers of each candidate who received a total score of 262 to 265 following the initial grading of all examinations are automatically reread and regraded by graders other than the initial graders prior to the release of final results in accordance with the Board's regrading policy set forth in Board Rule 6000.11. The candidate's scores were then recomputed to arrive at a final score examination score. THERE IS NO APPEAL OR FURTHER REVIEW OF THIS FINAL SCORE.
