†Each value is a rough approximation of the score on a 200-point scale that would be required to meet the jurisdiction’s minimum passing standard. Please note that this value is not applicable to individual bar examination components, nor is it used to determine actual pass/fail outcome. In addition, local grading policies, bar exam characteristics, and other statistical factors may lead to  uctuations in these values and may affect the comparability of these scores across jurisdictions.
‡The MPRE score scale runs from 50 to 150. **See supplemental remarks for scoring details.
