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.
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.
In addition to the below mentioned institutes, 34 law schools also accept LSAT-India 2014 scores.

Hello student cut off vary every year on various factors like the level of question in the entrance examination and total number of applicants in that examination, its difficult to predict exact score but as per previous year records 80 percentile or more than 80 percentile for 5 year law program at jindal law school.
Feel free to comment if you have any doubt
No. A very important point to remember is that there is no negative marking. So, once you reach the end of the section if you haven't answered every question or attempted every question then absolutely go back and answer. You have roughly twenty percent chance of getting it right just by guessing so please save 30 seconds to a minute at the end to go back and make sure that you have an answer entered for every single question.

I think it's a misperception that it is an easy test and you don't have to prepare for iit and you can just walk in and take it unlike the CLAT and I think that's wrong. I don't think it is an easy test and I know it is not because I actually see the raw scores and it's certainly a test that you have to practice for so one thing I will tell you as far as percentiles and so forth is that even our highest scoring test takers over the years get a lot of questions wrong.
If you take the practice tests and you get 30 or 40 wrong out of 90- 92, they might want to give up but that's not necessarily the case. Again, you can get a good score with quite a number of questions answered incorrectly. So don't lose hope.
People believe that reading questions first is helpful and that will save time and that makes sense theoretically but my hunch is that for most people anyway that it is actually not going to work out very well because what is going to happen is that if you try to read the questions and then you read the passage and then you go back to the questions and you still wouldn't know the answer. You will have to go back to the passage. So you have to read the questions one time more than you need to. One thing to remember is that time is very precious in this test. It is a tough test and a good number of questions in the section and you don't have a lot of time so you have just a minute or two per question so you really should not waste your time. Time management is absolutely critical so reading questions first may work for some people and may work for some kinds of tests, our passages are not conducive to that practice because they are so dense and they have so many ideas in them and they are complex. The answers are not just going to pop off the screen at you once you read the passage. You really need to focus on the passage first and then go and tackle the questions.
