Interestingly, if you answered none of the 6 MEE essays, you would still receive about 35 points towards your total UBE score (meaning you could pass NY with a 170 MBE, above average MPTs and not a word written for the essays).
For example, for the J16 NY UBE exam, any MEE or MPT score above 47.82 was a passing score. If you received a scaled score of 47.82 on a July 2016 MEE answer, this was an exactly passing score.
This means if you put 47.82 for every MEE and MPT score into the J16 calculator and then 133 for the MBE, you will have an exactly passing score of 266 calculated for the J16 NY UBE exam. This would have contributed 13.3 points to your total UBE score (which is 5% of 266).
If you say Yes, I include your essays in the MEE/MPT Comparison which lets you see your answers compared to everyone else's side-by-side.
Following are very small samples of my February and July 2010 MPT comparisons: Comparison is viewable by everyone who participates in it and also by subscribers.
You can think of this as an “IRAC” format similar to what you may have used in law school.
However, there are a few things to keep in mind when using the IRAC format because it differs from the format that law school essays follow.
I have been doing these Comparisons since 2010 and never has an examinee told me their confidentiality was compromised in any way.
6) If you participate in the Comparison, I give you a coupon code if you decide to later subscribe to the full subscription site (where you can view the Comparisons for other exams) or refund if you are already subscribed.
The MPTs are always weighted at 20% The MBE is weighted at 50%.
After the scores are scaled to meet those above requirements you will get an overall score of, say, 260 or 280 or whatever and that is what you use to compare yourself to passing scores in other jurisdictions.
