Disclaimer: You should NOT solely rely on these February 2022 MPT predictions when you study! You should review everything when preparing for the MPT. All MPTs are fair game. This is just our educated guess on what will appear on the exam, which we do for fun! Sometimes we are right. Sometimes we are not!
1. Objective Memo
The objective memo has been tested nearly 50% of the time during the last 15 years. This is the most highly tested task of all of the tasks that have been tested on the MPT. It was most recently tested in July 2021. However, it is incredibly common for objective memos to appear on consecutive administrations. Thus, we would not be surprised if examinees are asked to write an objective memo on the February 2022 MPT.
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 NCBE Study Aids website:
- July 2011: In re Field Hogs, Inc.
- July 2014:In re Kay Struckman
- February 2015: In re Harrison
- July 2016: In re Whirley
2. Persuasive Brief
After the objective memo, the persuasive brief is the next most frequently tested task, appearing on the MPT about 25% of the time during the last 15 years. It was most recently tested in February 2021. Of late, the persuasive brief has been tested every other administration. However, it was tested consecutively in previous years on about four exams and then omitted on the following few exams. Because a persuasive brief did not appear on the MPT in July 2021, it is ripe for testing in February 2022.
If you are unfamiliar with how to format a persuasive, take a look at our post on how to format a persuasive brief on the MPT. It is good to know how to format a persuasive brief because formatting instructions are often not provided on the exam. When instructions are provided, the Examiners often ask bar exam takers to add a caption or statement of facts. Do not assume that the formatting instructions for all persuasive briefs (or any task!) are the same. Please read the formatting memo, if one is provided, very carefully. Formatting memos are always found immediately after the task memo in the MPT’s File.
To get some practice with persuasive briefs, we suggest 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 NCBE Study Aids website:
- July 2012: Ashton v. Indigo Construction Co.
- February 2013: In re Guardianship of Will Fox
- February 2014: In re Rowan
- July 2016: Nash v. Franklin Department of Revenue
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 (pictured below), 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 beginning with the first week of bar prep!
