Alternatively, if you have your MBE subscores (e.g CA), I can tell you your raw scores: you have a copy of your essays from your F17 attempt, I will be finishing my F17 MEE/MPT analysis in about a week if you want to participate: How my MEE/MPT Analysis and Comparison work:1) If you fail the UBE exam and have a copy of your essays, you email them to me.
2) I transcribe your essays and statistically analyze them.
Can anyone explain how grading actually works on the bar for UBE jurisdictions? Are the points for every essay on the MEE added together as a raw score for the 25% and then weighted?
Each jurisdiction has their own scale for the MEE and MPTs -- (Some use 1-6; other use 1-10, New York uses 20-50 to grade the MEEs.) The MBE is scored nationally so it is always on a 200-point scale and is the same everywhere.
3) Once I have a large enough sample of essays (usually 20-30 examinees for a February exam or 50-60 examinees for a July exam), I create the MEE/MPT Analysis for that exam.4) I then email you a free 37 page essay analysis that statistically compares your MEE/MPT answers to everyone else who sent me their essays.
A sample of the J16 Analysis (37 pages) is here: ...It can be helpful to have a bar exam essay template when you begin to write bar exam essays.A good bar exam essay template can help you ensure: (a) that you connect every dot and do not miss a step (that is, you will state the rule, apply it, and conclude); and (b) it can help you approach the bar exam with confidence knowing that you know how to design your essays to get the maximum amount of points.202016This MEE/MPT Analysis is confidential – I don't share your essays with anyone and no one else sees them.All I do is transcribe your essays and make the report once I have a large enough sample.You can think of this as an “IRAC” format similar to what you may have used in law school.However, there are a few things to keep in mind when using the IRAC format because it differs from the format that law school essays follow.If you had exactly passing scores for all 6 MEE answers, this would have contributed 79.8 points to your total UBE score (which is 30% of 266).In theory, the most you could ever get in points on the MEE is 30% of 400, or 120 points (you would have to write 6 model answers).Interestingly, if you answered none of the 6 MEE essays, you would still receive about 35 points towards your total UBE score (meaning you could pass NY with a 170 MBE, above average MPTs and not a word written for the essays).If you wrote 2 exactly passing MPTS on the J16 exam (scores of 47.82), the MPT would have contributed 53.2 points to your total UBE score (20% of 266).
