Past judgements play a critical role in the education of a budding lawyer

 

Law School Admission Council (LSAC) conducts lSAT-India, the Law School Admission Test for India. It is a standardized test of reading and verbal reasoning skill designed by LSAC for admissions to various participating law colleges in India. At least 53 colleges accept this score. The LSAT-India is an admissions test customized for Indian law schools - brought by The Law School Admission Council, USA and Pearson VUE. Though LSAT-India carries questions similar to LSAT, the exam is shorter and scores are reported on a different scale. The LSAT-India paper does not include any writing sample, whereas the LSAT does. LSAT scores are used for admission to several law schools in the United States, Canada and Australia, whereas LSAT-India scores can be used only within Indian law schools. 

 

Counselling

The scores of the candidates taking LSAT-India 2014 shall be sent by Pearson VUE to the respective law schools in India.  LSAT-India 2014 scores are reported on a percentile basis, comparing each candidate’s performance to that of the others who took the admission test within the candidate group. Scores for one candidate group cannot be compared to those for the other candidate group since they are based on group performance. Thus, LSAT-India scores tell law schools the relative strength of the critical-thinking skills measured by the test for each candidate in comparison to the others in his or her candidate pool.

 

LSAT is merely a qualifying examination. Individual colleges  have their own independent ways of assessing and selecting a candidates. This might include essays, statement of purpose, personality tests even assessment batteries. Some colleges also insist on a personal interview before making an offer.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 6th Nov, 2019

LSAT is technically the entrance examination for law courses in the United States. LSAT India is an unique version of LSAT, for admission in India. It is administered by Law School Admission Council. LSAT India has 2 Logical Reasoning sections,, one Analytical Reasoning and another Reading Comprehension section. Unlike the original LSAT, there are no experimental sections and no writing sample. Therefore, LSAT India is of lesser duration than that of LSAT.

What is the eligibility for LSAT India Exam? can a person appear for the exam after graduation.

Aditya kumar Student Expert 13th Oct, 2019
Hello there!

Greetings!

Tes , one can give LSAT after graduation, to be eligible for LSAT exam for admission into the three-year law programme, a candidate needs to hold a graduation degree from any recognized university with at least 55 percent marks in the qualifying degree . So if you have scored at least 55% or more in your graduation then you can give LSAT exam but in case if you belong to reserved categories (SC/ST/PWD), then the university gives 5 percent relaxation and which stands to be 50% so in that case even if you have scored 50 % then you will be eligible.
