Indiana MPRE Score Requirement

Indiana 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 Indiana.

Scoring/Grading and Results

In order to pass the Indiana bar exam, you must score at least 264 out of 400. This equates to 132, 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%. Indiana makes bar exam results available approximately 9 to 10 weeks after the exam.
