How to Pass the California Bar Exam
Here we will discuss how to pass the California Bar Exam in detail!
The California law license is one of the most coveted licenses in all of the United States. Unfortunately, the California bar exam has one of the lowest pass rates of all the bar exams. The California Bar Exam is graded out of 2000 possible points and a bar examinee must attain a score of 1390 or above to pass. Examinees who score above 1350 but below 1390 on the grader’s first read will go into a second read. The first and second read scores will then be averaged. If the average of the two scores is 1390 or greater, the bar examinee will pass the exam.
The overall pass rate of the California Bar Exam seems to be improving. For example, the California Bar Exam had an increased pass rate for the February 2022 bar exam to 33.9 percent, which was 7.1 percent higher than the February 2020 bar exam which had a pass rate of only 26.8 percent.

When it comes to the California Bar Exam, applicants need to manage the test-taking experience over two days. For many, managing the test-taking experience over those two days is easier said than done. A variety of different factors can impact your test-taking ability, confidence, and emotions during the two-day California Bar Exam. So, how can you recover if you have a bad first day of the California Bar Exam? We discuss this in more detail below!
What If I Don’t Finish A California Performance Test?
The California performance test on the California Bar Exam gives students a “real world” assignment similar to what they would experience in a law firm setting. The performance test contains a fact pattern with a closed universe of legal materials. Test-takers have ninety minutes to construct an answer to the performance test on exam day. This means that examinees need to carefully manage their time, read the materials provided, and construct a coherent argument that addresses all the legal issues. In doing so, students should utilize as many of the library materials as possible. If you’ve already taken the California Bar Exam and you weren’t able to finish the performance test, or if you’re worried you’ll run out of time on the performance test come exam day, this post is for you!
