The LSAT India 2019 Result will be announced on 1st June 2019. The LSAT India result is prepared on the basis of candidates' overall performance and it indicates their position against other candidates. More than 80 law schools participate in LSAT India for admission to their LLB and LLM programmes. Candidates must remember that the LSAT India result 2019 will be valid for one year only and will be accepted by the law schools located in India.
The LSAT 2019 scorecard will be accessible for 2 months from the date of declaration of results and after that, the request cannot be made. The LSAT scorecard will not be sent via email or post/courier.
LSAT India exam scores will be announced on the percentile basis. This means that LSAT India 2019 exam result will be announced in such a way that the performance of each candidate can be compared to others within his/her candidate group (BA.LLB programme or LL.B./ LL.M. Programme). A candidate's score cannot be compared to other candidate groups because they are based on group performance.
After the declaration of the LSAT India 2019 result, Pearson VUE will send the percentiles secured by the candidates to the participating institutes/colleges. The participating law schools will then release the LSAT India 2019 cut-off scores based on various factors such as the total number of candidates, difficulty level of the examination and number of seats available. Candidates will have to secure the minimum cut-off score to get selected for the counselling rounds of the various participating institutes. Each law school will have its own cut-off scores and it will be different from each other.
After receiving the percentile ranks of candidates, participating institutes will prepare the LSAT India 2019 cut-off on the basis of the following factors:
Note: The LSAT India percentile rank remains valid for a particular session only.
1. Can a candidate use the LSAT India score to apply to law colleges outside India?
No, the LSAT India is designed for use by law colleges in India and scores cannot be reported to law colleges/schools in countries other than India.
2. If a candidate has an LSAT score, can he/she use it to apply to a law school in India?
LSAT scores cannot substitute for LSAT India scores for admission to law colleges in India. However, if some law colleges in India decide to accept LSAT scores at a later stage, LSAT India has no bearing on the admissions process of these law colleges.
3. Can a candidate use LSAT India 2019 score for admissions in later years?
No, LSAT India 2019 scores can be used for admissions in 2019 only.
4. Are there any sectional cut-offs?
No. Pearson VUE sends the percentile rankings of applicants to the associated colleges. These percentile rankings are based on the overall performance of candidates and not the sectional performance.
5. Are different sections given different weightages in score evaluation?
There may be relatively small differences in weightages given to different sections because of a difference in the number of questions they contain, but, all questions count equally. The number of questions in a section can vary somewhat, but it is always approximately 24.
6. How will the candidates receive their results?
Candidates will not be sent any results directly. LSAT India will publish percentile scores 3-4 weeks from the day of the test and the scorecard will be available for download from the "Download Score Card" link on the official website. Candidates will be required to log into their registration application to be able to see their results. No results will be sent through e-mail or post.
