February 2021 MPT Predictions
Our February 2021 Multistate Performance Test predictions as well as suggested MPTs to review, can be found below.
Note: for 2021 specifically, it is difficult to make predictions. This is because the February 2021 bar exam will follow a series of fall bar exams, which have never occurred in the past! Thus, we strongly urge you to study all MPT formats.
February 2021 MPT Predictions
On the February 2021 MPT, you will have to complete two tasks if you are sitting in a Uniform Bar Exam jurisdiction. This is worth 20% of your overall bar exam score. The Examiners typically want to see whether students can write both persuasively and objectively. Therefore, it is much more common for students to see one objective task and one persuasive task. Check out our predictions for the February 2021 MPT below.
1. Objective Memo
The objective memo and persuasive brief make up almost 70% of all tasks tested during the last fifteen years. The objective memo was last tested in October 2020. However, the Examiners typically test objective memos on consecutive administrations, so we would not be surprised to see this task appear in February 2021.
If you are unfamiliar with how to format an objective memo, take a look at our post on how to format an objective memo on the MPT. It is a good idea to know how to format an objective memo because usually formatting instructions are not provided on the exam.
To get some practice with objective memos, we suggest that you complete a few tasks under timed conditions to figure out your strengths and weaknesses. We recommend taking a look at the following MPTs, all of which are available for free on the Supreme Court of Georgia’s Office of Bar Admissions website:
- July 2016: In re Whirley
- February 2017: In re Ace Chemical
- July 2019: Estate of Carl Rucker
2. An Opinion or Demand Letter
After the objective memo and the persuasive brief, the next most common MPT tasks are opinion letters and demand letters. The last time examinees were asked to write a letter was in September 2020. We think that if you are asked to complete an objective memo for one of the tasks on the February 2021 MPT, the other task will most likely be a letter – either a demand letter or an opinion letter.
Opinion letters are generally written to clients. They provide an objective view of the possible courses of action available to them. If you are feeling unsure about this task, check out our post on how to draft an opinion letter. Demand letters generally ask the recipient of the letter to take a particular action, thus it is a persuasive task. If you are looking for tips, take a moment to read our post on how to format a demand letter.
To get some practice with letters, we suggest that you complete a few tasks under timed conditions to figure out your strengths and weaknesses. So, we recommend taking a look at the following MPTs, all of which are available for free on the Supreme Court of Georgia’s Office of Bar Admissions website:
- July 2014: In re Linda Duram
- July 2015: In re Bryan Carr
- February 2016: Miller v. Trapp
Note: Again, we want to emphasize that you should not rely solely on these predictions! You should take the time to review all of the commonly tested tasks on the MPT (objective memo, persuasive brief, demand letter, opinion letter) in addition to a few uncommon tasks. It is also worth it to review our free MPT one-sheet, our MPT guide, and our MPT Seminar if you need extra guidance.
If this is a section of the exam that you struggle with, we recommend practicing MPTs early on and each week!
