LawPrism's CBX Score Analysis SpreadsheetThe California Bar Exam uses scaling factors to determine each applicant's final score. These factors vary across administrations but are fairly consistent for each July administration and for each February administration.

LawPrism developed an interactive tool using Microsoft Excel that lets you see exactly how well you need to do on the three portions of the exam (i.e., MBE, essays, PTs) in order to achieve a passing score on the California Bar Exam. You may find it surprising how passable the exam really is.
