Utah MPRE Score Requirement

Utah requires bar exam applicants to pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (“MPRE”). You must score 86 or higher on the MPRE in order to pass in Utah.

Scoring/Grading and Results

In order to pass the Utah bar exam, you must score at least 270. This equates to 135, 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%. Utah makes bar exam results available approximately two months after the exam.


If you fulfill all other applicable prerequisites, then you can obtain admission to the Utah State Bar without taking the Utah bar exam when: 1) you are a lawyer who qualifies for such admission on motion; or 2) you transfer into Utah a passing UBE score.

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.”
