Historic Release Dates

This is a list of the Score release dates for the US Bar Exam. Records begin February 2016.

We lost track during the madness that was COVID-19 due to personal circumstances, but we are back to our usual work as of the July 2022 exam.

*Please note that this is not intended for reliance. States can (and often do) change their release dates. Call your State Bar Association if you need an exact date for the current exam. This is just to give bar examinees an idea of when results MIGHT come out based on past trends.
