Tackling Multiple Choice Questions In Law School

More and more law professors are including multiple choice questions in their final exams in order to give students a sense of what to expect on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE).

While some students like multiple choice, others are less than thrilled at the idea of it becoming more popular on final exams. But mastering multiple choice is a lot easier if you have the right approach. The following tips will help put you on the right foot early, which can pay big dividends later on the bar exam.

Approach it like an essay question.

Just like essays, a multiple choice question on your law school final requires you to spot the legal issue, identify the legal rule, and analyze the facts before getting to your answer.

Correct is not always right.

Students often assume certain facts or ignore missing elements. But this is what makes multiple choice questions the easiest method for tricking students. Don’t get caught by red herrings. Choose your answer based only on the facts presented.

Don’t forget that the clock is ticking.

As soon as the exam begins, make sure you figure out how many minutes you have per question. Generally, each multiple choice question is going to be worth the same amount of points so it’s important not to spend too much time on any single question. You don’t want to lose points on easier questions because you ran out of time.

Don’t jump to conclusions.
