Other Law Entrances

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

The LSAT—India will be offered twice – once in January and again in June – and will be administered online.

Exam Pattern

Section Type Number of Questions Duration
Analytical Reasoning 23 35 minutes
Logical Reasoning (1) 22 35 minutes
Logical Reasoning (2) 23 35 minutes
Reading Comprehension 24 35 minutes
Total ~92 2 hours and 20 minutes

Analytical Reasoning - These questions test deductive reasoning skills by requiring an aspirant to deduce what could or must be the case about a certain scenario, based on some rules and conditions.

Logical Reasoning - These questions evaluate an aspirant's ability to understand, analyse, criticise, and complete a variety of arguments contained in short passages.

Reading Comprehension - These questions measure an aspirant's ability to read, with understanding and insight, examples of lengthy and complex materials similar to those commonly encountered in law colleges.

There is no negative marking or penalty for incorrect answers.

The maximum testing time for taking the LSAT-India is 2 hours 20 minutes. The test consists of four timed sections of 35 minutes each. Candidates will not be able to attempt questions or review answers once the section time is over. There will be additional time required for check-in procedures and other formalities before the test.

If a candidate completes answering a section before the allotted section time expires, the balance time will not be added to the next section's allotted time.

There will be no breaks for the candidates during the online LSAT-India.

LSAT Scores

Scores are generally available a few weeks after the test date.

A candidate's LSAT-India scaled score is based on the number of questions (s)he answered correctly (raw score) and is an estimate of her/his actual proficiency in the skills tested. As there are slight differences in the difficulty of different versions of the LSAT-India across test administrations, raw scores are not directly comparable. For this reason, the raw score is converted to an LSAT-India scaled score that ranges from 420 to 480, with 420 being the lowest possible score and 480 being the highest possible score. LSAT-India scaled scores can be directly compared across different administrations and testing years.

LSAT-India scaled scores are reported along with a score band because the estimate of proficiency provided by a given LSAT-India scaled score is not perfectly accurate. A candidate's actual proficiency in the skills tested on the LSAT-India may be slightly higher or slightly lower than that reflected by the score. The score band indicates a range of scores, including scores slightly higher and slightly lower than the score received. The actual proficiency in the skills measured by the LSAT-India is likely to fall within this range.

To aid in interpreting your LSAT-India scaled score, a percent below value for a candidate's scaled score is also reported. The percent below reflects the percentage of candidates for a given programme whose scores were lower than the candidate's. Starting in 2019, an LSAT - India score became valid for 5 years. However, a candidate should check with his shortlisted law colleges whether they will accept a score received during a prior year.
