Handling Your Simulated MBE Results: #BarPrepLife

Simulated MBE? Okay, I want to be real with y’all.

This week was my simulated MBE. I’d love to sit here and write that I’m thrilled with how I did and that I feel amazing heading into the exam. But that’s not the truth. The Simulated MBE results were eye-opening and I have a lot to work on before exam day.

I’m sure many of you are feeling the same way, but instead of feeling frustrated I want us to use these practice scores as motivation! It’s great that we were able to take a practice test and gauge our progress before we sit for the actual exam. Now that we’re aware of our problem areas we can study in a way that is more focused and more efficient.

I know that’s easier said than done, so I’ve included a few of my favorite quotes to help you get in the right frame of mind and #OwnTheBar!

“Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.”

“The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.”

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
