Allison was unsuccessful twice with Kaplan before enrolling in tutoring.

“I think having a personal tutor help to prepare me for the bar exam is the only reason I finally passed the bar. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to AmeriBar and their program.”

Indiana Bar Exam Format


The Indiana Bar Exam is administered over two days.

Day 1

The written portion of the exam is administered on the first day of the Indiana bar exam. The written portion of the bar exam consists of the Indiana Essay Exam (“IEE”) and the Multistate Performance Test (“MPT”). You will have three hours to answer two MPT questions. You will have four hours to answer the six IEE questions.

Day 2

The Multistate Bar Exam (“MBE”) is administered on the second day of the Indiana bar exam. The MBE is a multiple-choice test containing 200 questions. The MBE is split into a morning and afternoon session. Each session consists of 100 questions. You have three hours to complete each session.

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. This equates to 132, based on the MBE’s 200-point scale. The scores of the exam sections are weighted as follows: MPT 20%, IEE 30%, and MBE 50%. Indiana makes bar exam results available approximately 9 to 10 weeks after the exam.

Heidi was unsuccessful twice with Barbri before enrolling in tutoring.

“Well, the one thing I did do differently was not use Barbri… I used the AmeriBar materials and had the one-on-one tutorial for the essays. I do think it probably made a large difference in how I handled and approached my essays.”
