When Will February 2018 Michigan Bar Exam Results Be Released?
Wondering when the February 2018 Michigan Bar Exam Results will be released? The Michigan Board of Law Examiners states that Michigan Bar Exam results are released mid-May but in reality, they are usually released earlier than that.
Below, you can see the past release dates for February Michigan Bar Exam results.
The Barbri mock exam creates a lot of stress among students. They wonder:
- Is the Barbri mock exam harder than the actual exam?
- Can you score low on the Barbri exam and still pass the real exam?
- What “percentage” is passing on the Barbri mock exam?
Instead of asking these questions, guessing at whether you will receive a passing score, or worrying about how hard the MBE will be in comparison to the Barbri mock exam, we recommend you take a lot of the guesswork and stress out of it and use actual released bar exam questions.
That way, the only question is: Am I getting enough questions right to pass? You do not have to worry about how these questions compare to “real” questions as they were written by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) so they are reflective of what you will see. (We explain at the bottom of this post what score you should aim for on the released MBE exams.) Continue reading
