The North Carolina Bar Exam requires a minimum scaled combined score of 270 points out of 400 points to pass. The MBE® is weighted at 50% of the score, the Essays are weighted at 30%, and the MPT®s are weighted at 20%.
A minimum passing scaled score is 80 or higher.
Applicants who have obtained at least a 270 on the UBE® in another jurisdiction may apply for admission. An applicant has three years from the date of the exam to transfer the UBE® score to North Carolina.
North Carolina permits admission by comity, without examination for applications who: have graduated from a law school approved by the Council of the North Carolina State Bar; have been duly licensed in a reciprocal jurisdiction and engaged in the full-time practice of law as principal means of livelihood for a minimum of four out of the six years immediately preceding the filing of the application; may be required to submit supporting documentation, including time sheets, to substantiate that applicant meets the requirements for admission by comity. For more information for the requirements see Rule .0502
Both general applicants and UBE® transfer applicants are required to successfully complete the UBE® North Carolina State- Specific component. The State-Specific component is six one-hour video courses on North Carolina law subjects, with three questions embedded at the end of each subject video.
