Arizona MPRE Score Requirement
Arizona requires bar exam applicants to pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (“MPRE”). You must score 85 or higher on the MPRE in order to pass in Arizona.
Scoring/Grading and Results
In order to pass the Arizona bar exam, you must score at least 273. This equates to 136.5, based on the MBE’s 200-point scale. The scores of the exam sections are weighted as follows: MEE 30%, MPT 20%, and MBE 50%. Arizona releases the February bar exam scores in May and the July bar exam scores in October.
Arizona provides for reciprocity by admission by motion or by transfer of a UBE score. You must fulfill several criteria for the Arizona committee to admit you by motion, which include active practice of law for five of the past seven years; and admission by passing the bar exam of a jurisdiction having reciprocity with Arizona. Some of the criteria required for admission by transfer of a UBE score include a passing score of 273 and not having actively practiced law for five of the past seven years.

Jennifer was unsuccessful twice with Barbri before enrolling in an AmeriBar course.
“I felt so prepared and so well-versed in every area of the law for the exam. I never felt that way with Barbri the first couple of times I took it. I can’t say enough about how well-prepared I felt and how relieved I was after failing twice to come back and just nail it after six years of absence from the law.”
