Free MPT Practice Samples

Today I was answering an email from someone asking about study advice for the Oregon bar exam.  One of the questions was:  if I am not taking BarBri, where can I get MPT samples to practice with?

I did a little investigating, and was able to discover that the NCBE has some former MPTs and "score sheets" on their website.  Here is the link (once you get there, scroll down).  Although the "score sheets" are not actual responses, it does give you an outline form of what the graders are looking for.

For those of you in MPT jurisdictions, it would probably be worth a look at the NCBE site to see if these practice answers will be of any help to you in studying for the bar exam.

So I am totally freaking out. I just realized that I wrote my MPT for the wrong party. I don't know how I totally screwed this up. Does this mean that I will get a ZERO? Surely writing for the opposite client is a fatal mistake. Please advise

@Anonymous -- A component of the MPT is to follow the assignment memorandum, so I would assume you would lose some points for writing for the wrong client, but if the rest of the analysis is solid I would hope you would still receive some points and not a zero. Unfortunately, I was never a bar exam grader and have no experience with a similar situation, so this vague response is the best I can do.
