The Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) is a two-day exam composed of the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), six Multistate Essay Examination (MEE) essay questions, and two Multistate Performance Test (MPT) tasks. The UBE is uniformly administered, graded, and scored and results in a portable score that can be transferred to other UBE jurisdictions. UBE jurisdictions accept transferred UBE scores that meet their minimum passing score, but each jurisdiction may set its own time limit for accepting UBE score transfers. Jurisdictions also have their own eligibility requirements (see Charts 3 and 4 for educational eligibility requirements). Jurisdictions may accept transferred UBE scores prior to their date of first UBE administration.

A jurisdiction-specific component is a separate test, course, or some combination of the two, offered in person or online, that a UBE jurisdiction may choose to administer to assess candidate knowledge of jurisdiction-specific law. (Jurisdiction-specific components are listed in this chart; see Chart 11 for possible additional post-admission requirements.)

Concurrent application for admission by transferred UBE score means that an applicant is applying to take the UBE in one jurisdiction and applying for admission by transferred UBE score in another jurisdiction before the UBE score has been earned.
