Idaho - Bar exam Info
Testable Subject Areas
The Idaho Bar Examination consists of three parts: The Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), and the Multistate Performance Test (MPT). The exam is administered over two days in February and July each year during the last week of the month that includes a Wednesday.
Day 1: Essay Day
AM Session: 6 MEE questions (3 hours)
PM Session: 2 MPT questions (3 hours)
Day 2: MBE Day
AM Session: 100 MBE questions (3 hours)
PM Session: 100 MBE questions (3 hours)
Graders use a 100-point scale for assigning raw scores on all essay questions, and the raw scores are converted to a 200-point scaled essay score. The MBE is weighted 50%, the MEE is weighted 30%, and the MPT is weighted 20%. Passing score is 280 or above (140 or above is passing without MBE). The MPRE has a required score of 85, and if you take MPRE after successfully completing the bar exam, you must take the MPRE within the next two exam administrations.
