Is the Mpre harder than the bar exam?

The MPRE is a difficult test and the questions are arguably even more difficult than the bar exam given that it is hard to test ethics in a multiple-choice format.

How many questions can you get wrong on Mpre?

The MPRE should not be underestimated. Two questions can make the difference between passing (answering 60% of the questions correctly) and failing the exam (answering 50% of the questions correctly) in many jurisdictions!

Is the Mpre curved?

The MPRE is curved to help ensure that you are not unfairly penalized (or rewarded) for taking a more (or less) difficult version of the exam. Assume every MPRE question you answer correctly is worth three points, round up and then add one additional correct answer just to be safe.
