You must average a scaled score of at least 133 on each day, for the July 2003 exam, and at least 136 on each day thereafter.

Florida generally releases the results of the Summer exam in mid-September and the results of the Winter exam in mid-April.

*MPRE --
Florida requires an MPRE scaled score of at least 80.  Your MPRE score will be accepted by Florida only if you sit for the Florida Bar Exam and the MPRE within 25 months of each other.
