It is possible to technically “pass” the Uniform Bar Exam in one jurisdiction and fail it in another. Note that if you receive a passing Uniform Bar Exam score in a jurisdiction, that does not mean you are licensed in that jurisdiction. In order to get licensed, you still have to comply with the other procedural requirements (which generally include passing the MPRE, passing character and fitness, paying licensing fees, attending a swearing-in ceremony, and which may include passing a separate state exam).
