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.
On March 2, 2017, the Assembly CA Legislature Committee on Judiciary sent a letter to the Honorable Tani Cabtil-Sakauyo, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of CA, with its concerns about the declining pass rates on the CA bar exam. It asked that she consider reducing the score required to pass. The Committee urged her to address the "crises" by temporarily lowering the minimum score required to pass the exam (called the cut score), while further exploring the relationship between the score and its impact on the quality of jurisprudence in the state.
As of July, 2017, the CA Bar Exam will go from what is currently a 3-day test to a 2-day test. There will be 3 parts: 5 essay questions, 200 MBE questions, and one 90-minute Performance exam. On Tuesday morning, applicants will have 3 hours to answer 3 essay questions. During the afternoon session, applicants will have 3.5 hours to answer 2 essay questions and one Performance Exam. On Wednesday, applicants will have 3 hours in the morning to answer 100 MBE questions, and 3 hours in the afternoon to answer 100 more MBE questions.
