Kim Kardashian Has Finally Passed The Baby Bar Law Exam

Kim Kardashian is celebrating after finally passing California's 'baby' bar law exam.

The reality TV star turned businesswoman turned hopeful lawyer got enough marks to get through the state's test that precedes the Bar Exam.

This was her third attempt in two years and she's reflected on how difficult it was studying while preparing her 40th birthday, raising her kids and having her marriage break down.

She wrote on Instagram: "Looking in the mirror, I am really proud of the woman looking back today in the reflection. For anyone who doesn't know my law school journey, know this wasn't easy or handed to me.

"I got back up each time and studied harder and tried again until I did it!!!"

Kim explained how the 'baby' bar exam in California, also known as the First Year Law Student Exam (FYLSE), is what law students need to pass in order to sit the actual Bar Exam.

Students have seven hours to write four essays and it's used by unaccredited law schools in California. You need to get more than 70 per cent to pass.

According to her, the FYLSE has a harder pass rate compared to the final test.

"I was told by top lawyers that this was a close to impossible journey and harder than the traditional law school route but it was my only option and it feels so so sooooo good to be here and on my way to achieving my goals.

"I know my dad would be so proud and he would actually be so shocked to know that this is my path now but he would have been my best study partner.

"I am told he was notorious for making fun of people who didn't pass on their first attempt like he did, but he would have been my biggest cheerleader!

"Bottom line is don't ever give up even when you are holding on by a thread, you can do it!!!!! Set your mind to it and get it done because it feels soooooo good once you get to the other side!"

In her first attempt, she received a mark of 474, which was well below the minimum 560 points she needed to pass.

However, now she can set her sights on sitting the Bar Exam and eventually become a lawyer.
