Connecticut MPRE Score Requirement
Connecticut requires bar exam applicants to pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (“MPRE”). You must score 80 or higher on the MPRE in order to pass in Connecticut.
Scoring/Grading and Results
In order to pass the Connecticut bar exam, you must score at least 266. This equates to 133, based on the MBE’s 200-point scale. The scores of the exam sections are weighted as follows: MPT 20%, MEE 30%, and MBE 50%. Connecticut makes bar exam results available approximately 10 weeks after the February exam, and 9 weeks after the July exam.
Under certain circumstances, Connecticut allows for admission without examination based on reciprocity. Connecticut restricts such admission to lawyers from reciprocal jurisdictions that fulfill all applicable requirements. Connecticut will accept a transferred UBE score of 266 attained within the prior 3 years.

Jennifer failed twice with Barbri. “I felt so prepared…for the exam. I never felt that way the first couple of times. I can’t say enough about how I felt after failing twice to come back and just nail it after six years of absence from the law.”
