LSAT Exam India

The LSAT-India (Law School Admission Test – India) is a standardized test of reading and verbal reasoning skills designed by the USA based Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for use by law schools in India.

The LSAT—India will be administered across 16 Pearson VUE test centre locations in India and at select overseas Pearson VUE test centre locations on 16th May, 2010. The test will be administered in a paper and pencil format in India and in computer-based testing (CBT) mode at overseas locations.

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is conducted as a kind of entrance test in order to admit quality lot of students into the law schools in United States of America, Canada, and Australia. But it is also followed in India, which is organized by the Person Law School.

The LSAT is developed and organized by a non-profit organization, namely the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), which includes more than 200 law schools, throughout America and Canada. Apart from conducting the LSAT, as a basic admission test for the law school admissions, it also maintains a database, which stores each applicant’s information/performance.

LSAT Structure

The LSAT is conducted for four times throughout the year, i.e. in the months of June, September/October, December, and February, out of which the June month’s examination is considered to be the start of a new cycle, as most of the applicants appears for the June month’s LSAT examination for the following year’s law schools’ admission process. The test consists of six sections altogether, consisting four scored sections, an un-scored experimental section and an un-scored long writing section. The four scored sections comprise of multiple choice questions and each section designed for a time limit of 35 minutes. These sections in general consist of questions from the following categories:

Logical Reasoning

This in turn consists of two sections, namely ‘arguments’, or ‘LR(Logical Reasoning)’, which is designed in the form of paragraph, which would be in the form of either as an argument or as a set of facts. Hence, the applicants/candidates’ abilities would be evaluated on the basis of concepts like, logical omissions of the errors in the arguments, if any, to evaluate the argument’s logic, assumptions and thereby to conclude the same, to spot out the logics of the weak and strong sections of the arguments, etc…

Reading Comprehension

This section of the test comprises of four passages, consisting of 400-500 words under the one category of ‘RC’. Each passage would be followed by 5 to 6 questions, which would be focused on the author’s objective, idea, and further the inferences that could be drawn from the passages, etc…

Analytical Reasoning

This section is also informally referred as ‘logic games’. Each test section consists of four different games and the candidates are expected to draw inferences and in turn would be evaluated based on their logical ability. The sections are provided with a set of rules and in turn consist of concepts like forming, grouping and ordering the elements and finally concluding on the logic evaluations of the same.

Un-scored Section

It consists of one experimental section and one 35 minute long writing sample section. The details about the experimental section are not disclosed to the candidates in order to avoid plagiarism and to maintain high standards in the LSAT examination. The writing sample section is provided with the arguments, besides the constraints. Some of the colleges do consider the writing section, seriously as basic criteria in their admission procedures. Hence, the writing section bears a great significance, even though it is not being awarded with any marks.

Scores

The LSAT procedures also follow the same rules, as that of the SAT, except for the provision of percentile marks on the score report. Thus, the raw scores are evaluated first, followed by the normalized scores, based on the statistical procedures. The normalized scores are distributed on the scale, which ranges from the low of 120 to a high of 180. The scores are also equalized using the ‘equating’ process, hence the huge deviations between the raw scores and the normalized scores are eradicated.
