“I am afraid to check bar exam results! What should I do?”

MPT library“I am afraid to check bar exam results! What should I do?”

We get a lot of emails and calls from people who are afraid to check bar exam results! This frequently happens when the jurisdiction posts by seat number online. All of the sudden, examinees can find out instantly whether they passed or failed!  This is convenient for examinees since they do not have to wait for a letter to arrive in the mail.

The fact that many examinees only know if they pass or fail (and cannot instantly see their score) often causes people who do not see their seat numbers on the list to think that they completely bombed the exam, when in reality they may have failed by just a few points.
