The Latest Updates from the NCBE

NCBE OPE 1 & 2 Changes

Earlier this week, AdaptiBar, a licensee of the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE), received a memo detailing updates to the NCBE’s licensed Online Practice Exam (OPE) questions, a key component of AdaptiBar’s database. These updates, made by the NCBE, are intended to make the questions clearer and more consistent. Although new facts have been added in a few cases, most edits are minor.

The altered questions pertain to Online Practice Exam questions that date back to 2006 and 2009 (OPE 1 & 2), the years in which the two sets of 100 licensed questions were released by the NCBE. As soon as AdaptiBar received these change, the edits were updated in the database. All practice exam questions are now up-to-date according to NCBE standards. Furthermore, all of AdaptiBar’s questions in the database reflect the form and content of the questions that will appear on upcoming exams. Therefore, you can prep and study knowing that AdaptiBar has the most accurate, up-to-date, licensed questions available.

As a NCBE licensee, AdaptiBar offers 100 percent of all available, licensed MBE questions (1,530). The only questions in the database that are not licensed are those in the Civil Procedure subject. Since the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) has yet to test Civ Pro, it will appear for the first time on the February 2015 exam, no questions in that topic have been released. To simulate Civ Pro questions for upcoming test takers, AdaptiBar hired two of the nation’s leading Civ Pro professors to write 200 simulated questions modeled after the licensed questions from the NCBE.

If you have any inquiries or concerns regarding these changes, feel free to contact us. Happy studying!
