Multistate Bar Exam
The Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) is developed by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) and administered by the Board of Bar Examiners as part of the Massachusetts Bar Exam. An information booklet, which provides the applicant with a description of the MBE, outline of the subject matter and sample questions, is available on the NCBE web site: National Conference of Bar Examiners .
Multistate Bar Examination scores achieved on prior bar examinations are not accepted by the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners.
The Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners will only accept Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) scores transferred from another jurisdiction when they are achieved on a concurrent administration.
Applicants requesting the transfer of their Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) scores to another jurisdiction need to submit the MBE Score Advisory and Transfer Request .

Prior to filing an application to sit the Massachusetts Bar Exam each applicant shall have passed the MPRE with a scaled score of 85 or higher.
