About the Test :
LSAT—India is a paper-and-pencil test with four sections.
Test duration – 2 hours and 20 minutes
Question type – Multiple Choice format
Registration Fee – Rs. 3800/-
The LSAT—IndiaTM is patterned after the world-renowned LSAT®. It is developed by testing professionals with advanced degrees in psychometrics, English, linguistics, and logic. It is not created by ad hoc committees of faculty. The LSAT—IndiaTM pattern rigorously follows prescribed specifications that are essentially the same every year. Each test question has been subjected to multiple levels of review and to a system of pretesting, so candidates can be assured that every question has one and only one correct answer.
The LSAT—IndiaTM is meant to help anyone with good critical thinking skills. So, there are no questions designed to assess prior legal knowledge, no questions requiring mathematical knowledge and no questions on current affairs or grammar. The LSAT—IndiaTM breaks critical thinking skills down into three main types: logical reasoning, analytical reasoning, and reading comprehension. Since the first of these types is most predictive of success in law school, there are two sections of logical reasoning questions in the LSAT—IndiaTM. There is also one section each of analytical reasoning and reading comprehension questions, which contribute to the predictive validity of the test.
There is no negative marking or penalty for guessing. Only correct answers contribute to a candidate's score. Therefore, candidates should leave no question unanswered and guess on those questions they cannot carefully consider.
Test scores are reported on a percentile basis, comparing each candidate's performance to that of the others within his or her candidate group (Five-Year Integrated LL.B. Programme or LL.M./ LL.B. Programme). Scores for one candidate group cannot be compared to those for the other candidate group since they are based on group performance. So, for example, an undergraduate candidate earning an LSAT—IndiaTM score of 82.5 has performed better on the test than 82.5 percent of the total undergraduate candidate pool. This score does not indicate what the candidate’s standing would be within the post-undergraduate candidate pool. Note also that this score does not mean that the candidate answered 82.5 percent of the LSAT—IndiaTM questions correctly. Thus, LSAT—IndiaTM scores tell law schools the relative strength of the critical-thinking skills measured by the test for each candidate in comparison to the others in his or her candidate pool.
