LSAT (Law School Admission Test) is a standardized test to assess one’s aptitude for studying Law. LSAT is an integral part of admission process for law schools in United States, Canada and some other countries abroad.

LSAT is mandatory for admission to law schools affiliated to American Bar Association (ABA) and Canadian Common Law Schools. The test was created in the year 1948 as a measure to provide the Law schools with a standardized way to test candidates in addition to their GPA.

LSAT was previously administered four times a year- June, September/October, December and February. However, starting 2018, LSAT is conducted six times in a year- January, March, June, July, September and November.

LSAT is designed to test your Critical Reading and Analytical Thinking Skills, which are considered important for success in a law school.


Law School Admission Council (LSAC), is the official body to conduct the LSAT exam and doesn’t specify any conditions to write the exam. Candidates need to check for any specific criteria with their targeted law schools. Test is intended for candidates desirous of studying law and have graduated or are about to graduate and looking for admissions in a law school.

Age: There is no age limit to write the test.

Scoring in LSAT

LSAT has a score range of 120-180. The LSAT system of scoring is predetermined and does not reflect test takers’ percentile. The relationship between raw questions answered correctly (the “raw score”) and scaled score is determined before the test is administered. Adjusted scores lie in a bell curve, tapering off at the extremes and concentrating near the median.

Your LSAT score determines which law school you will go to-or whether you will go to a law school at all. Law schools, through your LSAT Score, determine whether you have the aptitude required to be successful in a law school. Most law schools assign a weightage to your LSAT score along with your GPA. Generally, weightage assigned to LSAT score is greater or equal to 50%.

Multiple Scores: A candidate may take the test as many times he/she wishes. Earlier, only three attempts were allowed in a period of two calendar year. The current ABA rule now requires law schools to report only the highest LSAT score for matriculants who took the test more than once.
