If your name does not appear on either Pass List One or Pass List Two, you did NOT achieve a passing score on the September 2020 Virginia Bar Exam. Your results and instructions for re-application were mailed to your address on file.

A Re-Application for Examination can be found on our website barexam.virginia.gov. Click on - Bar Exam - Applying for Exam - Application.

Please Note: The statutory filing deadline for the February 2021 Bar Exam is December 15, 2020.

See § 54.1-3925 of the Code of Virginia. If your application is not actually received in the Secretary's office by the filing deadline (May 10 for the July exam; December 15 for the February exam), it may be deemed to be timely filed only if it has been transmitted expense prepaid to the Office of the Secretary of the Board by Priority, Express, Registered or Certified mail via the United States Postal Service, or by a third party commercial carrier for Next-Day Delivery, and the official receipt therefor issued by the United States Postal Service or by such third party commercial carrier, which shall be exhibited on demand of the Secretary, shows such transmission or mailing to the Secretary's office on or before the prescribed deadline.

Priority, Express, Registered or Certified mail via the United States Postal Service or Next-Day Delivery by a third party commercial carrier are the only methods of transmission or mailing authorized by the statute. Thus, an application sent by any other form of mail, such as First Class mail, cannot be accepted if it is received after the filing deadline, even if it is postmarked before.

Application forms should be filed no more than 90 days prior to the filing deadline, but must be filed by the statutory filing deadline in accordance with § 54.1-3925 of the Code of Virginia.
