The Pennsylvania Bar Examination consists of the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) and the Pennsylvania Essay Exam. The Pennsylvania Essay Exam consists of six essay questions and the Pennsylvania Performance Test.
The essay examination consists of six essay questions that cover one or more of the subjects stated. Each essay question will include more than one subject area; however the subjects will not necessarily be tested in a particular order or appear in the same question number from one essay examination to the next. Applicants are expected to demonstrate their knowledge of Pennsylvania law (where applicable) when answering the essay portion of the bar examination. Please note that the value of an essay answer depends not so much upon the correctness of the conclusion(s), as upon the recognition of issues and the quality of the discussion that evidences an ability to apply the law to the facts presented, and to reason in a logical manner in arriving at a conclusion. Factors such as grammar, penmanship and spelling are not considered in the grading of the essay answers.
The Pennsylvania Performance Test is designed to assess the examinee’s ability to use fundamental lawyering skills in a realistic situation. Each examinee receives a “File” of source documents and a “Library” of cases, statutes, and rules. Each PPT question is designed to be answered within 90 minutes. It provides all necessary materials to answer the question and does not require the applicant to use any state-specific law.
The MBE consists of 200 multiple-choice questions that test the following areas: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts & Sales, Criminal Law & Procedure, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts. Of the 200 questions, 175 are scored questions and 25 are unscored pre-test questions. The pre-test questions are indistinguishable from the scored questions so applicants are advised to answer all questions.

My constant dialogue with the Themis staff helped me avoid feeling overwhelmed and optimized my study time. Without the personalized support, quick response time and such a flexible/adaptable program, I would've been in heaps of trouble. I still cannot fathom why anyone would pay double or triple for an inferior product. Thanks Themis!
