LSAT - Law School Admission Test Overview

All about LSAT - Law School Admission Test

The LSAT—India is a test of reasoning and reading skills, not a test to see whether you happened to have memorized the right facts or equations. The theory behind the LSAT—India is democratic and inclusive. It holds that students acquire critical thinking skills over their educational lifetimes, and that these skills are the most important for the study of law. Good critical thinking skills may be acquired in virtually any educational programme anywhere so long as it is rigorous and of high quality. Thus, no training in any specific field or set of fields is required to do well on the LSAT—India. The test rewards candidates with generalised abilities adaptable to a variety of circumstances.

How To Prepare

Official LSAT—India Test Taking Tips

• The most important test taking tip is that prior to sitting for the exam, you should spend as much time as possible becoming familiar with the test pattern, which includes the question types and test timing, by taking advantage of the test preparation materials available on the official website. There is no substitute for PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. This should help you to experience no surprises during the exam and enhance your confidence so that you can do your best.

• We recommend that you work with the free sample questions and the PrepTests available on the official website in three steps:  

1st Practice answering questions and sets of questions with no time limits using the free sample questions and PrepTest No.-1. 

2nd  Practice answering all of the questions in a section with strict adherence to the sectional time limit (35 minutes) using PrepTest No. 2.  

3rd Practice taking two entire tests with strict adherence to the time limits and other simulated testing conditions explained on page 4 of the PrepTests using PrepTest No. 3 and PrepTest No. 4.  

• In working with the free sample questions and the PrepTests available on the official website, always review the questions you answered incorrectly and try to see why the credited response is the correct answer.

• You should spend as much time as possible preparing for each of the three question types—

Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension. However, be aware that two of the four sections on the test are Logical Reasoning sections.

Since the LSAT—India measures critical thinking skills, not mastery of any specific body of knowledge, cramming facts, mathematical formulae, and other general knowledge prior to the exam is not necessary and will be a waste of time.

• All of the information that you will need to answer the questions is provided on the test papers.

You just need to apply your reading and reasoning skills. Work within the context provided by the reading passage for a question. Answer each question on the basis of the information that is given, even if you do not agree with it. The questions do not involve any tricks or hidden meanings.

• Always read all of the answer choices before selecting the best answer. The best answer choice is the one that most accurately and completely answers the question being posed. Rule out any clearly wrong answer choices before selecting the best answer.  

• Do not pick a response simply because it is a true statement. Although true, it may not answer the question posed.

• Each section of the test is timed separately, with 35 minutes per section. Finishing a section can sometimes require strategizing. If you find that you are stuck on a question, move on to the next one and come back to the one you skipped at the end if there is time remaining for that section.

• Be aware that sections are taken in the order that they appear in the test book. Candidates are allowed to work only in the section currently being timed by the invigilators. Candidates are not permitted to go back to an earlier section or forward to a later one even if they finish a section before time is called.

• The test taking rules are strictly enforced. Please carefully follow your invigilator’s instructions and the instructions on the test paper and OMR answer sheet.

• Credit is given for each question a test taker answers correctly, and all questions count equally.

You will not be disqualified for leaving questions or a section blank. However, there is no negative marking or penalty for guessing. So the best strategy is to answer each and every question; guess on those you can’t carefully consider.

• Be your best on test day. Avoid unnecessary stress and arrive well rested.
