LSAT Test Dates for 2022

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a standardized test conducted by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for aspiring law school candidates. It is an integral part of admission to law schools in the United States, Canada, and many more countries. It aims to assess skills required for the first year of law school. These include reading, comprehension, logical reasoning, and writing, which present the abilities of the candidates in addition to their GPA.

Format of LSAT

The test is conducted in two parts:
  1. The first part consists of a multiple-choice assessment. This part includes questions on reading comprehension, analytical and logical reasoning.
  2. The second part, known as LSAT Writing, can be completed 8 days before the multiple-choice exam.
The LSAT is the only test that is accepted by all ABA (American Bar Association)-accredited law schools. It also aids the candidates to ascertain their ability for law school.

Scheduled Dates for the Tests

Due to the preference expressed by the majority of test-takers, the LSAC will conduct the LSAT in an online, live remote-proctored format till June 2022. The scores of the test are released at 9 a.m. ET via the candidates’ respective LSAC accounts.

Scores

The LSAT score is based on the questions that have been answered correctly. The weightage of the test questions is the same and there is no deduction for incorrect answers. The test is scored from 120 to 180, with an average score of 150. Along with the LSAT score, the candidate will also receive a percentile ranking. This ranking would help compare the candidate's score with that of everyone who has appeared for the LSAT in the last three years.
Scores will be posted on the Status page of the candidates’ LSAT account, which will be notified through an email.

Retaking the LSAT

For candidates who wish to retake the LSAT test, the cost remains the same, with the registration being $200. However, the candidate cannot retake the test more than three times in any two years. This applies even if the candidate has canceled their score. To implement this, LSAC can cancel the registration, rescind the admission ticket and take other steps against the candidate.
