    May I just say what a comfort to discover somebody
    that actually knows what they’re discussing online.
    You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people need to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you certainly have the gift.

    Hello, I am wondering what the chances of passing the reprise are. Do students who struggle to pass the first exam typically have an easier time passing the reprise? Also, would you say it’s tough or unlikely to pass the final if one performs poorly on ethics? Thanks so much.

      The pass rates for both the main exam sitting and the reprise are about the same, meaning that roughly half of the people writing the reprise will pass it. In terms of difficulty, the reprise is just as hard as the initial exam, but the advantage you have on the reprise is that you have time to study without the distraction of bar school. With respect to a poor ethics mark, it makes it harder to pass, objectively as ethics is only 20 points and the actual bar exam is 80 (split over two days), you can in theory pass the bar while getting 0 on ethics. A 10/20 or more on ethics is generally alright, anything below that does start to be a bit of a hindrance.
