The Committee of Bar Examiners sets the grading for “normalizing” the written and multiple-choice scoring through a formula it established for the Bar Exam and the First Year Law Students’ Exam (known as the Baby Bar.) Previously, the Committee represented that the two sections of the Baby Bar carried an equal, 50/50 ratio. However, when an examinee failed the June, 2016 Baby Bar by one point and challenged the formula, the results showed the scoring did not equal a 50/50 ratio as represented. In fact, the written portion carried more weight than the multiple-choice portion.
