Muller: Bar Exam Scores Rebound To Highest Point Since 2013

MBEDerek Muller (Pepperdine), Bar Exam Scores Rebound to Highest Point Since 2013:

After last year's slight year-over-year improvement in bar exam scores, bar exam scores are up again. The scaled mean of the Multistate Bar Exam rose 1.4 points to 141.7, the highest since 2013, which was 144.3, shortly before a hasty collapse in scores. ...

For perspective, California's "cut score" is 144, Virginia 140, Texas 135, New York 133. A bar score of 141.7 is comparable to 2014 (141.5), 2005 (141.6), and 2003 (141.6) in recent years.

Wonderful news. No need to lower the California cut score.
