You can add New York to the list of jurisdictions that saw an improved pass rate on the February bar exam.

The overall pass rate on the attorney licensing exam—which was administered online for the second time due to the COVID-19 pandemic—was 49%. That’s up from 40% a year ago, when the exam was administered in person, and marks the highest February pass rate since 2013. The New York Board of Bar Examiners released the results Wednesday.
