How is Ube scaled?
Jurisdictions grade the MEE and MPT components. The MEE and MPT scores are scaled to the MBE and UBE total scores are calculated by NCBE. The MBE is weighted 50%, the MEE 30%, and the MPT 20%. UBE total scores are reported on a 400-point scale.
How does bar scaling work?
How Your MBE Score is Calculated Raw Scores & Scaled Scores. There are 175 scored questions, with 25 scored questions from each subject area tested (see chart below). Each scored MBE question is worth one point, for a total of 175 points. This raw score is then converted to a scaled score between 1-200.
What is the highest score on the bar exam?
What makes up a UBE Score?Your UBE score will be out of a possible score of 400. The MBE, on the other hand, is scored by the NCBE and is out of a possible 200 points. You can see that the UBE scores range from a low of 266 to a high of 280. You don’t have to get a perfect score, or even close, to pass the UBE.
Is the bar exam on a curve?

Is Barbri enough to pass the bar?
I’ve passed two bar exams using only barbri, so it’s definitely possible. I’d say watch how you are doing on the MBE sets, and if you are consistently getting better than 70%, you probably don’t need anything else (unless you want to for your own peace of mind.) I did Barbri, Critical Pass and Adaptibar.
Why is it so hard to pass the bar exam?

Do Adaptibar questions get harder?
In a sense it does because it’ll adapt to the areas that you’re struggling in. But the questions aren’t inherently more difficult, but they very well might be more difficult for you based on past performance in those areas.
Are AdaptiBar questions real?
Does AdaptiBar use real MBE questions? We do! AdaptiBar’s ever-growing database contains 1,743 licensed MBE questions used on past bar exams, including the newest batch of 210 questions released by the NCBE in December of 2017 (MBE Study Aid).
How accurate is AdaptiBar?
Yes and no. AdaptiBar gives you an accurate prediction of how you will score on the MBE. This statement was proven in a study conducted by AdaptiBar, which revealed that how users performed in AdaptiBar accurately reflected how they performed on the MBE portion of the actual bar exam.
