NOVEMBER 2019 MPRE SCORES: November MPRE scores are scheduled to be posted in NCBE Account File Cabinets on December 11.
Developed and scored by NCBE, the MPRE is a two-hour, 60-question multiple-choice examination covering established standards related to a lawyer's professional conduct. The MPRE is administered by NCBE and required for admission by most jurisdictions.
Coordinated by NCBE, the UBE is composed of the MEE, MPT, and MBE and results in a portable score that can be transferred to other UBE jurisdictions. The UBE is administered and graded by user jurisdictions.
Developed and scored by NCBE, the MBE is a six-hour, 200-question multiple-choice examination covering seven substantive areas of law. The MBE is administered by user jurisdictions as part of the bar examination.
Developed by NCBE, the MEE consists of six 30-minute essay questions covering up to 12 areas of substantive law. The particular areas covered vary from exam to exam. The MEE is administered and graded by user jurisdictions as part of the bar examination.
Developed by NCBE, the MPT consists of two 90-minute tasks designed to test fundamental lawyering skills in a realistic situation. It is not a test of substantive knowledge. The MPT is administered and graded by user jurisdictions as part of the bar examination.
