All About Exam
Exam is conducted in the mid of May every year. It’s a paper and pencil test with four sections.
Duration: 2 Hours 20 Mins
Number of Questions
|1st Logical Reasoning||25||25|
|2nd Logical Reasoning||25||25|
The LSAT—India is a paper-and-pencil test with four sections. Two of the sections contain logical reasoning questions; one section contains analytical reasoning questions; and one section contains reading comprehension questions. The time allotted for each section is 35 minutes, with no scheduled break built into the exam. All questions are multiple-choice. Please note that some sections may consist of questions with four answer choices, while the other sections consist of questions with five answer choices. Answers are collected on a scannable answer sheet. Only correct answers count towards the score; there is no penalty for incorrect answers. The test duration is 2 hours 20 minutes.
Analytical Reasoning Questions
These questions measure the ability to understand a structure of relationships and to draw logical conclusions about that structure. The test taker is asked to reason deductively from a set of statements and rules or principles that describe relationships among persons, things, or events. Analytical Reasoning questions reflect the kinds of complex analyses that a law student performs in the course of legal problem solving.
Logical Reasoning Questions
These questions assess the ability to analyze, critically evaluate, and complete arguments as they occur in ordinary language. Each Logical Reasoning question requires the test taker to read and comprehend a short passage, then answer a question about it. The questions are designed to assess a wide range of skills involved in thinking critically, with an emphasis on skills that are central to legal reasoning. These skills include drawing well-supported conclusions, reasoning by analogy, determining how additional evidence affects an argument, applying principles or rules, and identifying argument flaws.
Reading Comprehension Questions
These questions measure the ability to read, with understanding and insight, examples of lengthy and complex materials similar to those commonly encountered in law school. The Reading Comprehension section contains four sets of reading questions, each consisting of a selection of reading material, followed by four to nine questions that test reading and reasoning abilities.
Prohibitions during the Exam
The candidate must not carry any articles such as cell phones, calculators, pens, arms, etc., as only the admit card, IDs in original, HB pencils, sharpeners and erasers are required for the test and all other articles have to be left outside the test hall at the candidate's own risk.
