Will the February Bar Exam Results Be Delayed and How Will the COVID-19 Affect the July 2020 Bar Exam?

SATs, LSATs have been cancelled or postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week, the MPRE was administered as probably the last multiple-people test given for a while.

Will the February bar exam results be delayed? As of today, the NCBE says that it anticipates no delay and will send the MBE scores to the states as scheduled. But how will this affect each state’s ability to meet, discuss and grade their bar exam results?  Fortunately, the states can do as much as they can remotely to gather the scoring and produce the results in their usual timely matter. No states have yet have announced any changes to their plans for releasing results.

Of most concern, is the July 2020 bar exam.

How does COVID-19 portend for the July bar exam?

None of us can predict how the COVID-19 virus situation will evolve, but, as of now, we are all under the same restrictions, shutdowns, and prohibitions against large gatherings, no matter where we live, be it Miami, New York, San Francisco, France, Singapore.

Each states’ board of bar examiners are now considering how to administer the July bar exam.  For example, Florida has only one testing sight, Tampa, for their testing.  It appears that states will have to consider different options to protect the students’ health, such as opening up more test sites across their individual states to accommodate our new reality.

Good luck, keep safe and keep healthy during this time.  Remember, that the MBE & UBE Testing Institute is a one-on-one tutoring program that is remotely based, by telephone, by facetime, by Skype.  We can help all repeat takers pass the bar exam.

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute knows that taking the bar exam as a repeat taker can be an isolating experience. The MBE & UBE Testing Institute helps the student keep motivated and confident through interaction with an MBE & UBE Testing Institute’s bar tutor.
