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.
