If you're really prepared, it's easier to stand out on the written portion in February because there are more repeaters. Most repeaters — not all — are less competent, less prepared, and less confident than their July counterparts. All three, competence, preparedness and confidence, factor greatly in your success.

Yes, I can hear it now. Confidence matters.

wouldn't repeaters be better off since they've done it before and know what to expect?

But nope. Repeaters are generally less competent and their chances of passing are likely cut in half. Check out the stats. Of course there are exceptions. You are actually likely to score higher in July because a higher MBE mean raises nearly everyone’s score. Joe Serperac breaks it down on TLS.

The LSAT is different because it is administered 4 times a year (when I took it in 2012). Many people take it more than once because it is not a pass fail test . Check out LSAT forums.

The MBE is harder to pass in February due to the equating of the test and scaling of the scores. For example, there are 60 equator questions, 115 unique scored questions, and 25 unscored pretest questions on the MBE. If your group does equally as well as the two former groups on the 60 equator questions, 30 of which are taken from previous July test and 30 from the previous Feb. test, but then your group gets hammered on the 115 unique scored questions, the examiners can conclude that part of the test was harder and award your group with a larger number of scale points. However, if your group bombs the equators, they will just assume you are a bunch of dummies and you won't get as much sugar from the scaling process. A lot of people who take the test in February are working full time, previously failed and under a lot of stress. It's much more likely you will get a weak scale in February than in July.
