For example, I find that a Foreign-Educated First-Time Taker who is Asian/Pacific Islander taking a July exam who sends me his/her scores usually has an average final score between 630-640, which corresponds with the results in the Demographic Chart . Meanwhile, based on the Demographic Chart , the examinees with the highest pass rate are Domestic-Educated First-Time Takers who are Caucasian/White sitting for a July exam - these examinees have an average final score of 738 and an average pass rate of %. This means that if you are a domestic-educated first time taker with a high LPGA (above ), you are probably going to pass the bar exam irrespective of the bar review that you choose or study methods that you employ.

An applicant's raw multiple-choice score (out of 100) is converted to a 400-point scale. Each of the four essays can receive a raw score between 40 and 100 (total raw essay score range of 160-400). The total raw essay score is then converted to the same 400-point scale of measurement used for the multiple-choice portion of the exam. An applicant's total score on the California Baby Bar Exam is the sum of the converted multiple-choice and essay scores (each section is weighted 50%). A total scaled score of 560 or higher (scaled average of 70%) is needed to pass the California Baby Bar Examination.
