MBE Results

I don't yet have the data for the Summer 2015 exam but it looks to have been an especially difficult one. The NCBE claims that the addition of Civil Procedure has not made the test markedly more difficult because students do not perform significantly worse on that subject than they do on any other subject. But I don't think that tells the entire story; with an additional subject added to the exam, time is pulled from studying for the many other areas tested. And the results are reflecting this change:

"The average score on the multiple-choice portion of the July test fell 1.6 points from the previous year, reaching its lowest level since 1988, according to data provided to Bloomberg by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. The mean score on this summer's exam was 139.9, down from 141.5 in July 2014."
