Passing the California First Year Law Students’ Examination

Posted in Uncategorized on August 31, 2012 by barprofs

It is imperative that you pass the California Baby Bar as soon as possible and within the allotted three times or you will have to retake your law school classes.

First let’s discuss the grading of the California Baby Bar.

An applicant’s raw multiple-choice score will be the number of items answered correctly. Multiple-choice raw scores will be converted to a 400-point scale.

An applicant’s assigned grade on an essay question can range between 40 and 100. Total raw essay scores can therefore range between 160 and 400 points. Total raw essay scores will be converted to the same 400-point scale of measurement as that used for the multiple-choice portion.

An applicant’s total score on the examination is the sum of that applicant’s converted scores on the multiple-choice and essay sections. This step gives these sections equal weight in determining the total score. Applicants need a total scaled score of 560 or higher to pass the examination.

From the adjusted scale, an applicant needs to pass the California FYLSX by a score of 70%, which is why many students fail the exam.

However, an applicant who is required to pass the First-Year Law Students’ Examination will not receive credit for any law study until the applicant passes the examination.

An applicant who passes the examination within three consecutive administrations of first becoming eligible to take the examination will receive credit for all law study completed to the date of the administration of the examination passed, subject to any restrictions otherwise covered by these rules.

An applicant who does not pass the examination within three consecutive administrations of first becoming eligible to take the examination but who subsequently passes the examination will receive credit for his or her first year of law study only.

Students need to pass the California baby bar as quickly as possible so that you do not have to retake classes.  That is why it is important that you get a bar tutor to help you pass the California FYLSE.  Bar Professors can help you pass the California Baby Bar.  We also can help law students attending Non-ABA approved law schools.  We offer year round tutorials in the subjects tested on the California baby bar.

The California Baby Bar Exam Results

Posted in Uncategorized on August 30, 2012 by barprofs

For those first year students who are entering unaccredited law schools in California now, you must keep in mind that you need to pass the California First Year Law Students’ Exam – also known as the CFYLSE or the CFYLSX or the California Baby Bar.

The CFYLSE is a one day examination for first year students. The exam consists of four essay questions and 100 multiple choice questions.

The subjects covered in the California Baby Bar examination are Contracts (including Article 1 and 2), Criminal Law, and Torts.

 

The results for the June test came out on August 10th.  The failure rate of the FYLSE is 80%. Students fail, not only because of the lack of substantive knowledge, but because their writing and analytical skills are weak.

The next testing date is October 2021. For those students who failed the exam, let Bar Professors help you pass.

Bar Professors offers a specialized tutorial for California Baby Bar takers designed to help you pass the California FYLSE. The general focus of concentration is on legal reasoning and rule application. Our advice is to start studying for the FLYSE, four months in advance of taking the test.
