This page contains two matrix calculators - one for the February exam and one for the July exam. The first calculator will calculate a score matrix for the February 2012 New York bar exam administration based on the scaled MBE score you enter. Please note that these calculations are estimated. The Essay/MPT average is converted using the February 2010 scale (this scale should be close to February 2012 scale). For the NY Multiple choice questions, the calculation is based on the February 2011 scale so the estimate could be off by +/-2 questions. A total score of 665 is required to pass the New York bar exam. You can also change the Average Score columns to enter New York Essay Questions and MPT averages lower than 30 or greater than 60. The NYMC range is between 10-40 questions since over 95% of examinees will score within this range. Please note the calculator only provides an estimate of your final score and the accuracy of the calculator diminishes with very high or very low scores.
There is a second score matrix below the February matrix. The second calculator will calculate a score matrix for the July 2011 New York bar exam administration based on the scaled MBE score you enter. On this second matrix the Essay/MPT average and NY Multiple choice questions are converted using the July 2010 scale (this scale should be close to July 2011 scale). Both calculators are on one page to illustrate the difference between the February and July scales based on the scores you enter.
