Unfortunately, I'm not in that 18.7%. I'm preparing to retake it in a couple of weeks. I'm a little worried because on of my professors claims that the June test was one of the easier ones. I didn't think it was easy. Sigh. Anyway, I'm doing 50 mcqs a day and at least 2 essays a day. It's all I can manage with my work schedule.

Dang! That's like 5/6 attrition rate! (of those who didn't quit earlier in 1L)


I do find it interesting that correspondence did better than distance learning (you'd think more interaction would result in better scores) and the fixed facilities did even worse than both of those. That kind of blows in person is better brick&mortar theories out the water a bit.

I find it really interesting how the law offices/judges chamber (no school at all-internship) did the best of all execept the pre mentioned equaling almost double the overall average pass percentage. The less school they got, they better they did. They did almost as good as the ABA.

Here's a question though, why if not required would anyone take the exam who is going to an ABA school? Pure Narcasism? Either way, even ABA only got a 44% pass rate(less odds than flipping a coin) Shows how hard it must be.

Well, you can't beat advice like this: 

"Read the !@#$ing question." - Good idea for just about any exam I'd say.  8)

FYBE is always a 20% pass rate or thereabouts. The chambers/offices people are outliars since they likely know quite a bit about the law already.  Correspondence should always be a little higher because it consists of pure memorization which is the key to passing bars.

Do you really think that correspondence has LESS access to books and notes in exams than those being in proctored rooms?

Not sue I follow your question - correspondence study would have more emphasis on memorization and less interaction with a program because of its design.

How?I understand the less interaction part, but how would it focus more on memorization when you have more access(not less) to notes and books to use?
