The online registration process for LSAT-India will close on May 1, 2016. Administered on May 15, 2016, by US–based Law School Admission Council (LSAC), LSAT-India is a standardised test of reading and verbal reasoning skills for use by law schools in India.
It is a paper-and-pencil test with four sections and about 100 questions. Test duration is of two hours and 20 minutes. Questions will be asked in multiple choice format. Registration fee is Rs 3,800.
You can register for the test in the online mode or by sending a demand draft. Registration windows are different for these modes.
It is a test of reasoning and reading skills. The LSAT-India 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.
It breaks critical thinking skills 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-India. 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.
