Missouri MPRE Score Requirement
Missouri 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 Missouri.
Scoring/Grading and Results
In order to pass the Missouri bar exam, you must score at least 260. This equates to 130, 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%. Missouri makes bar exam results available approximately seven weeks after the exam.
You may obtain admission to the Missouri Bar without examination (i.e., “Admission”), on motion, when you fulfill many requirements, which include having an active law license from another United States jurisdiction that allows for mutuality of admission without examination. You may obtain Admission if: 1) you scored at least 260 on the UBE in another jurisdiction within 24 months before you applied for Admission; and 2) you have the required legal education.

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.”
