How is the exam graded?
Given that the pass rates of the Ontario bar exams are not made public, we believe that it would be misleading to provide users with a pass or fail score. Rather, after completing our practice test, you are given a comparative score that shows how you performed against other exam writers. We break down your results into sections and categories, showing you which specific areas you may need improvement on.
How long are the practice exams?
Each of our practice exams is 240 questions long, split into two halves. You have 3.5 hours to complete each half and 7 hours total to complete the entire exam. We recommend taking at least an hour break in between halves.
How does the timer begin?
Once you click ‘BEGIN’, the timer will start counting down from 3.5 hours. Though it is not recommended, you are able to pause the timer at any time. You will not be able to view or answer any questions while the timer is paused. Once the timer expires, you will be directed to a new page and will not be able to return to the questions.
What happens if I don’t get to answer all of the questions in time?
Once time on each half expires, you will be directed to your portal and will not be able to return to unanswered questions. Our exams are designed to help you develop the necessary time management skills to pass the Ontario bar exams, which is why we recommend that you write our exams after you already have some familiarity with your detailed table of contents and/or index.
How are the questions grouped in the practice exams?
The questions are grouped by section. On our practice Barristers exam, the sections are Civil Procedure, Criminal Law, Family Law and Public Law. On our practice Solicitors exam, the sections are Business Law, Estate Planning and Real Estate. On both exams, Professional Responsibility questions will be mixed into each section.
What happens if I quit, log-off, or turn off my computer during the exam?
Don’t worry! The progress of your exam is saved even if you quit, log-off, or turn off your computer during the duration of the exam period. The exam and timer will pick up right where you left off.
How do I access the exam after purchasing it?
Once an exam is purchased, you will receive an email to set up a password. Once your password is set up, you will immediately be able to access your available exams in the account dashboard section of the site.
Am I able to see which questions I got wrong after I finish an exam?
You will not be able to view any answers to the questions once you complete an exam. However, you will be able to view a detailed report, which we believe is more helpful in identifying your problem areas.
Why don't you provide the answers to your practice exams?
The goal of our exams is to help users navigate through their index/detailed table of contents more efficiently and to ensure that they are prepared for the tight constraints of the actual exams. We believe that given the nature of the actual bar exams, there is little value added in having users review individual answers, and instead, we try to help them target more general areas of improvement.
I discovered a coupon code after purchasing your practice exams. Can it be applied to my purchase?
Unfortunately, we do not retroactively apply coupon codes to purchases.
Do you offer refunds?
All purchases are final.
