is a $50 administrative fee if you wish to re-download.
Note 2: Applicants for the July
2014 California Bar Examination Applicants may initiate and complete the
certification process with ExamSoft once they print their admittance tickets
from their Admission Status Screen. Beginning approximately eight weeks
prior to the examination, admittance tickets will be available for printing
from the Admission Status Screen after the State Bar’s Office of Admissions has
determined eligibility for the examination. You will not receive a ticket
in the mail.
Note 3: Even if you have downloaded SofTest for a previous Bar
Examination, you must log in, download and register SofTest again. Under
the “Exam Takers” section log in with your Applicant ID and Password. Please
use your File Number as your Applicant ID and your date of
birth (mmddyyyy) for the Password.
Note 4: Installing SofTest and successfully certifying your
computer means that you are ELIGIBLE to use your laptop for the California Bar

certified no later than the published deadline. If your laptop or the
