Bar exam scores hit 27-year low

After my early details about the dropping bar rates across most jurisdictions, Bloomberg reports that the scaled MBE score has dropped yet again, 1.6 points, to reach its lowest level since 1988.

Last year, I blogged about the drop in MBE scores, the 200-question multiple choice test that serves as the primary objective scale for score for bar passage, noting that it was the single-largest drop in MBE history. This year's decline is by no means historic, but it is the among the lowest scores in the history of the test. I've updated charts from last year here.
