LSAT Results (Law School Admission Test) – 2018, Announced
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT—India) have announced the 2018 results.
LSAT—India the reasoning-based test, was conducted on May 15th, 2018 in 19 cities across India. The reasoning-based test is established as one of the leading law tests for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate law admissions in the country and more than 74 law colleges accept LSAT—India scores as one of their admissions criteria.
The LSAT—India exam, offered by the global Law School Admission Council (LSAC), assesses the critical thinking, logical reasoning and problem-solving skills that are key to success for studying law. This test does not cover subjects such as Mathematics or General Knowledge. Your LSAT score is based on the number of questions answered correctly (the raw score). There is no deduction for incorrect answers, nor are individual questions on the various test sections weighted differently. Raw scores are converted to an LSAT scale that ranges from 120 to 180, with 120 being the lowest possible score and 180 the highest possible score. This is done through a statistical procedure known as equating, a method that adjusts for minor differences in difficulty between test forms.
To ensure confidentiality, LSAC will release your score only through email and postal mail. Scores will not be faxed.
Your LSAT Score Report includes
- your current score.
- results of all tests—up to 12—for which you registered since June 1, 2011, including absences and cancellations. Scores earned prior to June 2011 are not reportable.
- an average score, if you have more than one reportable score on file.
- your score band, if your score was earned on the 120–180 scale. Score bands reflect the precision of the LSAT and are reported to emphasize that your LSAT score is an estimate of your actual proficiency level. A score band is reported for each individual score, as well as for your average score, if available.
- your percentile rank, which reflects the percentage of candidates whose scores were lower than yours during the previous three testing years. A percentile rank is reported for each of your scores.
Divyalok Chetan Sharma, Senior Director (Client Development) at Pearson VUE, said: “This year we saw a good increase of candidates registering for LSAT—India. While Delhi and NCR had the maximum number of registrations, there was an upward trend on registrations from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra. Students will now be eligible to get admissions based on their percentile scores to 74 associated colleges, giving them much wider option”.

LSAT—India is specially created for admissions to law schools in India by the Law School Admission Council, USA (LSAC).
