Above the Law: California’s Bar Exam Results Are Absolutely Abysmal

Nearly two-thirds of all test-takers failed the exam. (here)

"According to a press release from the State Bar of California, the overall passage rate for the February 2017 exam was 34.5 percent, while the passage rate for first-time takers was 39 percent. The passage rate for retakers was a shockingly low 33 percent. . . .  In February 2015, the overall passage rate was 39.5 percent, and the passage rate for first-time takers was 47.4 percent. . . .  In February 2016, the overall passage rate was 35.7 percent, and the passage rate for first-time takers was 45 percent."
