Due to the outcry that the CA Committee of Bar Examiners’ bar exam scoring practices lack justification and result in unfair test results, the CA State Supreme Court announced that it will assume the responsibility to score the bar exam effective 2018. The State Supreme Court amended the CA Rules of Court to give it the sole authority to set the passing score on the CA bar exam, a function previously exercised by the Committee of Bar Examiners.
The Fleming's Performance Exam Workshop is a brand new, four-day online course that teaches you a step-by-step method with timing and strategy techniques for the 90-minute Performance Test (MPT), using 13 sample exams with model outlines and answers for demonstration.
Writing skills, timing, and strategy will become even more crucial on the July, 2017 Bar Exam. On day 1, bar candidates will have 3 hours to write 3 essay exams in the morning session. However, the true challenge will present itself in the afternoon session when bar candidates will have 3.5 hours to write 2 essay exams followed by a 90-minute Performance exam. If bar candidates go over time on the essay exams, they will not have sufficient time to complete the Performance exam that will follow.
