(a) Grading the Written Component of the Bar Examination. MEE and MPT answers shall be uniformly graded on a scale from zero to five points. In order to assure maximum fairness and uniformity in grading, the Board or its designees shall prescribe procedures and standards for grading to be used by all graders.

(b) Scoring the Written Component of the Bar Examination. The MEE and MPT scores added together constitute the raw Written Component score. The raw Written Component score is scaled to the MBE portion of the examination using the standard deviation method.

(c) Weighting of exam components. The MBE score is weighted 50%, the MEE score is weighted 30% and the MPT score is weighted 20% in calculating the Applicant’s total score.

(d) Passing grade. The Applicant’s total score is the sum of the scaled MBE score and the scaled Written Component score. The total score is based on a 400-point scale. A total score of 270 or above is required to pass the Bar Examination.

(e) Bar Examination results are final. Bar Examination answers will not be reread, reevaluated or regraded by the Bar or its designees.

(f) Number of attempts. An Applicant who has failed to earn a score equivalent to a UBE score of 270 or above after six examinations taken in this or any other jurisdiction of a U.S. state, territory, or the District of Columbia shall not be permitted to sit for the Bar Examination nor be admitted by transferred UBE score in this state except upon permission of the Admissions Committee for good cause shown.A petition providing clear and convincing evidence of good cause must be filed with the Deputy General Counsel by the retake deadline.
