Score Services

You must have an NCBE Account to request NCBE score services. If you do not know whether or not you have an NCBE account, use the NCBE Account Lookup before proceeding. Please note: MPRE score reporting services are performed only for scores earned in 1999 or later.

Each jurisdiction determines its own passing score on the MPRE. Any questions about admission requirements pertaining to MPRE scores should be directed to the bar admission agency in the jurisdiction to which an examinee is applying. Contact information for jurisdictions can be found in the Jurisdiction Information section of our website.

NCBE reports MPRE scores to the jurisdiction designated by the examinee in registration for the MPRE approximately five weeks after the examination. Examinees who would like to have their MPRE scores sent to other jurisdictions must submit a request to NCBE for an MPRE Score Report. All MPRE score services requests must be submitted through the examinee’s NCBE Account.

If you did not have an NCBE account when you sat for the exam, create an account to request score services. We will locate your score using other pieces of biographic information. You must have provided sufficient biographic information on your answer sheet at the time you tested. NCBE may refuse to provide score services if your scores cannot be identified with confidence.

Examinees who would like the scoring of their MPRE answer sheets rechecked by hand may request an MPRE Score Verification. Score verification requests must be submitted to NCBE within two months of the original test date. All MPRE score services requests must be submitted through the examinee’s NCBE Account.

MPRE scores will be released to examinees in the File Cabinet of your NCBE Account approximately five weeks after the examination.

No, not if you want to earn a portable UBE score. UBE applicants must take all portions of the examination (MEE, MPT, and MBE) in the same UBE jurisdiction and in the same exam administration to earn a portable UBE score.

Select a jurisdiction from our interactive map to view its requirements for admission by transferred UBE score. Contact the bar admission agency in the jurisdiction to which you seek admission for specific information.

Yes, provided the UBE jurisdiction accepts transferred MBE scores. NOTE: If you transfer a concurrent or prior MBE score to a UBE jurisdiction, however, you will NOT earn a portable UBE score. You must take all portions of the examination (MEE, MPT, and MBE) in the same UBE jurisdiction and in the same exam administration to earn a portable UBE score.

Yes, provided the non-UBE jurisdiction accepts transferred MBE scores. Select a jurisdiction from our interactive map to view its bar exam components and whether it accepts transferred MBE scores.

You must take the examination in a UBE jurisdiction to earn a portable UBE score. If the jurisdiction in which you tested had not adopted the UBE at the time you took the exam, you did not earn a UBE score, even if that jurisdiction administered the MEE, MPT, and MBE. You might be able to transfer your MBE score to a UBE jurisdiction and sit for only the MEE and MPT (and local component, if the jurisdiction requires) to seek admission in that jurisdiction, but you will not earn a portable UBE score if you do so.

No. The UBE is more than the sum of its components. It is uniformly administered, graded, and scored by the jurisdictions that adopt it. The fact that a jurisdiction administered the MEE, MPT, and MBE does not qualify the score as a UBE score.

Yes, provided the UBE score was earned within any time limits set by the jurisdiction regarding the maximum age of transferred UBE scores. Select a jurisdiction from our interactive map to view its maximum age for transferred UBE scores. You should contact the bar admission agency in the jurisdiction to which you seek admission for specific information.

With proper scheduling and approval by the jurisdictions involved, an examinee may be permitted to take the bar examination in two jurisdictions over a period of three days. One of the two jurisdictions must administer its local examination on Tuesday and the other must administer its local examination on Thursday. The examinee will take the local examination in the first jurisdiction on Tuesday, the MBE in either jurisdiction on Wednesday, and the local examination in the second jurisdiction on Thursday. Arrangements to use the MBE score in conjunction with two concurrent bar examinations must be made through the jurisdictions that allow concurrent use of scores. It is the examinee’s responsibility to verify that his or her MBE score will be available by the receiving jurisdiction’s deadline. NOTE: If one of the jurisdictions is a UBE jurisdiction, you will not earn a portable UBE score. You must take all portions of the examination (MEE, MPT, and MBE) in the UBE jurisdiction in the same exam administration to earn a portable UBE score; you cannot use an MBE score earned concurrently in a non-UBE jurisdiction.

If you did not have an NCBE account when you sat for the exam, create an account to request score services. We will locate your score using other pieces of biographic information. You must have provided sufficient biographic information on your answer sheet to identify your score at the time you tested. NCBE may refuse to provide score services if your scores cannot be identified with confidence.
