A minimum passing scaled score is 86 or higher.

MPRE® Policy: Applicants may take the exam any time after completing their first year of law school.

Applicants who are already licensed to practice law in another state or jurisdiction must register as an attorney applicant, complete a positive moral character determination, and pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination as well as the California Bar Examination. If an applicant has an active license and has been certified as in good standing for at least four years before he or she takes the California Bar Exam, he or she may take the one-day Attorneys' Examination - this consists of only Day 1, the written exam. Attorneys with less than four years of active status, or who are inactive or not in good standing, must take the full two-day California Bar Exam, which includes the Multistate Bar Examination.
