Administered in July, 8,071 applicants completed the exam, with a total of 41% (3,284) passing. For first-time applicants–Del Mundo included, the passage rate was over 55%. Despite the California Supreme Court’s initiative to make the bar's passage ‘more realistic,’ the state’s passage rate declined 9%, since July 2017.
“We are immensely proud of Chair Del Mundo’s passing the bar, and we had no doubt of his success, even with the low pass rates. The amount of time he invested in studying was incredible, and we are a much better organization, because of his success,” stated Greg Justice, CalGreen’s Chief Sustainability Officer (CEO/ED).
