LSAT or Law School Admission Test is a standardised test for admission to Law schools in US, Canada and many other countries. The test is conducted by Law School Admission Council and measures the skills like reading and comprehension of complex texts; organisation and management of information and the ability to draw reasonable inferences from it; ability to think critically and the analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and arguments of others.
LSAT is conducted four times each year at designated testing centres around the world. Many Law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December. However, taking the test earlier in June or September is advisable.
Students may not take the LSAT more than three times in any two-year period. This policy applies even if you cancel your score or your score is not otherwise reported.
There are three ways to apply for LSAT:
A student can register by calling at LSAC.
Once you have registered for a test during the regular registration period, you may not withdraw or cancel your registration and reregister for that same test during the late registration period.
The LSAT fee for USA is $ 165 while for Canada is $ 164. Students interested in pursuing Law from any other country can contact LSAC directly.
The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker's score. The un-scored section, commonly referred to as the variable section, typically is used to pretest new test questions or to pre-equate new test forms. The placement of this section will vary. A 35-minute writing sample is administered at the end of the test. LSAC does not score the writing sample, but copies of the writing sample are sent to all law schools to which a student apply.
