Derek Muller (Pepperdine), February 2017 MBE Bar Scores Collapse to All-Time Record Low in Test History:
On the heels of the February 2016 multistate bar exam (MBE) scores reaching a 33-year low, including a sharp drop in recent years, and a small improvement in the July 2016 test while scores remained near all-time lows, we now have the February 2017 statistics, courtesy of Pennsylvania (PDF). After a drop from 136.2 to 135 last year, scores dropped another full point to 134. It likely portends a drop in overall pass rates in most jurisdictions. This is the lowest February score in the history of aggregated MBE results.
