Grading of the Delaware Bar Exam:

The written portion of the exam is scored and converted to the same scale as the MBE (from a low of 0 to a high of 200).

The written portion is then multiplied by 60%.

Your scaled MBE score is then multiplied by 40%.

The two numbers are added together.

If the combined weighted score is 145 or higher (out of a possible 200), you pass the Delaware Bar Exam.
