Will New York follow the UBE States Who Will Take the October Remote Bar Exam?

Illinois, Pennsylvania, Washington, DC, Georgia, Massachusetts, Vermont, Texas, New Jersey, Ohio, New Hampshire, Maryland, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virgin Islands, California are all taking the October 5th and 6th remote, online bar exam.

New York has appointed a Working Group to evaluate administering the remote exam on October 5-6 and expects to reach a recommendation by early August.

The NCBE will provide a limited set of questions (MBE, MEE, MPT) to UBE jurisdictions for an emergency remote testing option for local admission during the COVID-19 crisis. The NCBE will provide 100 MBE questions divided into two 50-question sets, 3 MEE questions, and 1 MPT item, such that the materials can be administered in four 90-minute testing sessions. Jurisdictions may choose some or all of these materials. There will be only one remote test administration on October 5–6, with the MEE and MPT questions administered on October 5, and the MBE questions administered on October 6.

This remote testing option will not constitute the full bar exam or the UBE. Scores earned on the remotely administered test will be used for local admission decisions only, and will not qualify as UBE scores. The scores will not be eligible to be transferred as UBE or MBE scores to other jurisdictions or released to candidates via NCBE Score Services. However, DC has entered into reciprocal agreements with Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Tennessee for the portability of scores earned on the remote exam.

For those repeat takers and foreign educated lawyers from Washington, DC. Massachusetts, California, and all other UBE states who will take the remote October bar exam, we can help with an extended program. Remember, that the bar exam scores from DC, Massachusetts and California were some of the lowest passing scores in February.  Don’t wait until the last minute; you need to pass in October.  It may be the best chance you have to pass your bar exam.

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute has developed our remote extended programs for all students who will take the October or February 2021 bar exam. We are a one-on-one tutoring program that is remotely based, by telephone, by facetime, by Skype.  We can help all repeat takers and foreign educated lawyers pass the bar exam.

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute has an extensive 4 volume book set for Florida, California and the UBE, This 4 volume set was written by attorneys and law professors who are experts in law and 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 online bar tutor and tutoring.
