MBE and essay scores are combined in order to determine if examinee has achieved a passing score of 75% overall. A passing score of the combined essay and Oklahoma Multistate scores is 2400 points. For the essay portion of the exam, 1200 points is considered passing. The Oklahoma Multistate Score is computed from the MBE scaled score. An MBE scaled score of 135 equals 1200 points for Oklahoma scoring purposes. Examinees are not required to obtain a specific score on either part of the exam but must achieve a grade of at least 75% in the subject of the Oklahoma Rules of Professional Conduct.
Oklahoma will accept an MBE score only if from a concurrent exam.
A member in good standing of a reciprocating state may be admitted on motion if applicant has engaged in active practice of law for five of seven years preceding application and is a graduate of an ABA accredited law school. For complete details contact the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners.
