We correctly predicted 3 out of 5 subjects on the February 2021 California Bar Exam;
4 out of 5 subjects on the October 2020 California Bar Exam; and 4 out of 5 subjects on the July 2019 and February 2020 California Bar Exams, respectively. Since July 2017, the California Bar Exam has changed its examination format to five essays and one performance test. We have said this many times before – be ready for crossover essays. Crossovers are being tested more frequently now that the examination has changed its format. We ask that you not rely solely on these predictions and study all essay subjects tested on the California Bar Exam.
We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: Study Professional Responsibility! Study all past essays and all PR rule statements in detail so that you can score high and compensate for other lower scoring essays.
Here are Cal Bar Bible’s predictions for the July 2021 California Bar Exam:
1. Professional Responsibility
2. Torts w/ Remedies Crossover
3. Constitutional Law
4. Civil Procedure
5. Business Associations
*Wild card: Crimes
The February 2021 California Bar Exam Pass Rate was 37.2%. The pass rate reflected an increase of 10.4% compared to the February 2020 California Bar Exam. The February 2021 Bar Exam was the second remote exam and second exam graded under the new passing score of 1390.
We have spent the last few years working with California Bar Exam repeaters, which provided us with great insight into the crux of the problem: Why is it so difficult to pass the CA bar exam? Focusing only on the essay writing component of the exam, we discovered a number of issues, but overall, it came down to 1) understanding the information, 2) retaining the information, 3) regurgitating the information, and 4) applying the information. All of which are essential to pass the California bar exam.
As a result, we have compiled a guide that will help overcome barriers faced by all bar takers – whether it’s your first time taking the exam, or you are a repeater, our Cal Bar Bible materials (only $199) includes all subjects tested on the California Bar Exam. Each CBB subject copy includes an essay checklist, simplified and easy to memorize rule statements, condensed study sheets, essay templates, essay cheat sheets, outlines, hot topics, essay tracking, MBE tips, issue spotting, mnemonics, and much more to help you pass the formidable CA Bar Exam.
