What is the MPRE pass rate?
You may wonder what the MPRE pass rate is. This data (above) is the most recent data on the NCBE’s website (though it is from 2016). If we assume the passing score is 80 for the MPRE (though it varies based on jurisdiction), then it appears that in March 77.5% of examinees scored at least that. In August 2016, the approximate MPRE pass rate was 76.4%, and in November, it was 77%. (The chart does not necessarily state the exact numbers of examinees that scored in each category, so these numbers are only approximates.)
This means that, even if the passing MPRE score is 80, close to 25% of examinees fail the MPRE every bar exam. So don’t feel bad if you fail! You are certainly not alone.
The average MPRE score has also gotten lower. In 2007, the average was 98.6. In 2016, it was 93.1. So as time goes on (and as states increase the score that is required to pass the MPRE!) it is no surprise that more and more people are failing the MPRE!
