There is no distinction made between scored questions and pre-test questions on the exam. They are all mixed in together, so it is important that you answer each question carefully. 

You must achieve a score of at least 75% on each portion to pass. You will have 2 ½ hours to complete the national portion and 1 ½ hours to complete the state law portion.
