The Florida Bar Exam Results for July 2013: Repeat Florida Bar Exam Takers: Why Did You Fail And How Bar Professors Can Help You

Posted in Uncategorized on September 28, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our essay writing, MBE programs and Florida Bar Exam Tutors at http://www.barprofessors.com.

Most law students fail the Florida Bar Exam for three major reasons:

1. Repeat Bar Takers revert back to bad writing habits and poor analytical skills developed in law school

Under the pressures of the bar exam, many students revert back to bad habits. These bad habits allowed them to graduate from law school, but will be the kiss of death on the bar. Some of the bad habits include, not organizing your answer, no line by line analysis and not answering the call of the question.

Bar Professors will teach you the skills to analyze both the essays and the MBE, with improvement on better writing analysis.

2. Repeat Bar Takers have poor preparation and time management skills

Many law students start their bar preparation entirely too late, leaving most in a rush mode. For the upcoming February 2014 bar, your preparation should begin earlier rather than later. You should allow yourself 5 to 6 hours per day for studying. But more importantly, studying correctly is the key. You need to write and answer many essays and MBE questions. Your answers must be evaluated by a private tutor.

Bar Professors puts each student on a two week schedule so that the student is evaluated frequently. In addition, Bar Professors evaluates every essay the student writes and every MBE exam the student takes, looking for areas in which the student can improve.

3. Repeat Bar Takers don’t really believe that they will pass

You must have a belief that you will pass. Get rid of all negative thoughts, people and things. You must truly believe that you will pass. You must say this every single day prior to the bar and you must have the confidence to succeed.

Bar Professors knows that taking the bar exam as a repeat taker can be an isolating experience. Bar Professors helps the student keep motivated and confident through interaction with the Florida bar tutor.

The Florida Bar Exam Results for July 2013: Repeat Florida Bar Exam Takers: A Review of Your Bar Exam Scores

Posted in Uncategorized on September 27, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our essay writing, MBE programs and Florida Bar Tutors at http://www.barprofessors.com.

The Florida bar exam results have come out and all the repeat takers have gotten their letter telling them the breakdown of the scores. Here is the way the grading is done in Florida.

Grading the Florida Bar Exam

The MBE & Florida sections are weighted equally on the Florida Bar Exam. This is called the “overall method”. (Rule 4-25(a)). A combined weighted score of 136 is required to pass the Florida Bar Exam. It doesn’t matter if your score in one section or the other is below the 136 – it’s the average score that matters. So basically you can fail the FL or the MBE section and still pass the FL bar exam if your overall score is at least 136.

If you fail one section of the bar and choose to re-take only that one section in the next examination, you must score the 136 points or higher on that section. The Florida Board of Bar Examiners calls this the “individual method”. (Rule 4-25(b)). Your chances of passing are slightly lower than re-taking the entire bar again.

If an applicant attains a passing scaled score on only 1 part and elects to take the overall method of the General Bar Examination as described above, the previous passing status will not be replaced by a failing status if the applicant fails to achieve a passing score on a subsequent submission effort. (Rule 4-25.1).

Each examination paper produced by an applicant on the General Bar Examination will be separately graded. The scores of each section of Part A will be converted to a common scale by a recognized statistical procedure so that each section is equally weighted. The sum of the converted section scores is the total score for Part A. All total scores attained by the applicants on Part A are converted to the same distribution as their Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) scaled scores. MBE scores (Part B) are the scaled scores on the MBE provided by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Scaled scores are used in order to ensure that the standard of measurement of competence from examination to examination is not affected by the difficulty of the particular test or the ability of that particular group as distinguished from the general population of applicants. Rule 4-26.1

On the Florida portion of the bar, each essay is worth 100 points for a 300 point total. The multiple choice questions are worth 100 points total, so each question is approximately 1 point each. There are usually 10 experimental questions. The average essay score is around 40 points, requiring you to get your remaining points on the multiple choice questions.

Depending on the difficulty of the essay question and the average grade, the Board of Bar Examiners may adjust your score either downward or upward. There is a school of thought that a bar taker should hope for a difficult question so that the average grade is lower – thereby requiring the Bar Examiners to adjust upward. If the essay is an easy one, usually the average score is higher, thus requiring a downward adjustment. The Board does not adjust the multiple choice questions – there are what they are and the point totals do not change.

Review your bar scores and ask yourself how you can improve your scores when you retake the bar exam in February. Obtaining a Bar Professors Florida bar exam tutor will help you pass. Many students who are repeat bar takers need a bar exam coach to help them improve their writing and analytical skills so they can properly navigate through the Florida bar exam. Remember, the Florida bar exam is unique and more difficult to pass than other jurisdictions. This structured, personalized program is the key to passing the bar for repeat takers.

We have been talking with students all day Monday, Tuesday and this morning. The questions we’ve been asked more frequently is “what should I do if I was unsuccessful on the Florida Bar Exam?” First, let the shock of failing the bar subside with a few days of reflection. Clearly, this may be one of your greatest disappointments, but don’t let it control or define who you are. You can pass the bar exam in February 2014. Get right back up and say, “I will pass in February 2014.”

Ok, now let’s start. Do not repeat the same class, study plan or approach you used the last time. It did not work. Coming close on the bar is good only in horse shoes. One size does not fit all. Hard work and having a study plan and study strategy will pay off. Say to yourself, “I will be a lawyer.”

You want to get the bar exam behind you and start your new life as a lawyer. Don’t dither or waste time with the “what ifs”. Stay focused and true to your goal to pass.

Obtaining a Bar Professors Florida bar exam tutor will help you pass. Many students who are repeat bar takers need a bar exam coach to help them improve their writing and analytical skills so they can properly navigate through the Florida bar exam. Remember, the Florida bar exam is unique and more difficult to pass than other jurisdictions. This structured, personalized program is the key to passing the bar for repeat takers.

Above all, never give up.
