Failed the Illinois Bar Exam? It is still possible to pass!
If you failed the Illinois bar exam, you are not alone! The good news is, there is definitely hope you can pass! We have seen it time and time again. We recently helped two third-time takers pass the Illinois bar exam.
In fact, we just got this email today from one of our Uniform Bar Exam course takers who passed the Illinois bar exam:
Dear Meagan, Ambika, Alexandra, Rosie & the entire JD Advising Team,
I am thrilled to (finally) be able to say I passed the bar! I would not have been able to accomplish this feat without your guidance, support and the wealth of resources you provided during this program.
This is especially true regarding the one-sheets. Please make sure to remind your future students to start reviewing/memorizing them from the very beginning! They are invaluable.
Thank you again for all of your help.
We also have this great testimonial from an Illinois bar exam taker who took our Uniform Bar Exam course last year:
My score prior to taking this course was a 236. While the bar examiners refuse to release my passing score, at minimum I made a 30 point jump to pass with a 266. I took the exam twice before taking the JD Advising UBE Course. I would highly recommend using this course versus any commercial course like Barbri or Kaplan. If I could go back I would have never signed up for a commercial course. Unlike commercial courses, JD Advising provided UBE outlines that were not as dense and multiple examples after each concept that actually make sense. Since I have trouble memorizing, this was a game changer because I was mentally capable of breaking down the concept and capable of associating the concept/topic with certain scenarios for practical use on the exam. Moreover, the UBE Course provided actual bar exam essay questions from the past, allowing everyone to practice questions that will likely be brought up on the actual exam. Lastly, the best way to study for this exam is improving your essays through constant feedback, quizzes that force you to memorize, short outlines with easy to learn mnemonics, and a proper strategy to attack the multiple choice which can only be learned through this course.
I received my Illinois Bar Exam results today and I am very happy to share with you that I passed the exam. I greatly appreciate all of your help throughout this process, all of the feedback on my essays, all of the nuanced questions that you were able to answer, and the constant motivation to master this exam. I hope the rest of the class was as lucky as I was.
Remember that beginning in July 2019, Illinois is offering the Uniform Bar Exam, rather than its state-specific bar exam. Thus, you will be answering two multistate performance test questions, six multistate essay exam questions, and 200 multiple-choice questions rather than any Illinois-specific essays. (Note: the Illinois bar exam you took in February 2019 or past years was not very different than the Uniform Bar Exam — that is why we have been able to help Illinois bar exam takers pass using our Uniform Bar Exam Course!)
