Utah Bar Exam Format
The Utah Bar Exam is administered over two days. The examiners have adopted the Uniform Bar Exam (“UBE”).
The written portion of the exam is administered on the first day of the Utah bar exam. The written portion of the bar exam consists of the Multistate Performance Test (“MPT”) and the Multistate Essay Exam (“MEE”). You will have three hours to answer two MPT questions. You will have three hours to answer the six MEE questions.
The Multistate Bar Exam (“MBE”) is administered on the second day of the Utah 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.

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 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.”
