Other important tidbits about LSAT India exam pattern 2020

  • Candidates will be given strictly 35 minutes to complete a section. Invigilators in the exam hall will use countdown timers to keep track of time, and also warn candidates 5-minutes before calling time on a section. Once the 35-minutes are over, the candidate will have to stop answering that particular section and move to the next section.

  • Further, the candidate will be allowed to answer only that section which is currently being timed. What this also means is the candidate cannot attempt multiple sections simultaneously.

  • There will be no meaningful break between sections, which means the sections will have to be completed in one-go.

  • If the candidate has completed all the sections, but has still some time left, still the candidate cannot go back to a previous section to answer unattempted questions.

  • Scannable answer sheet: Considering the test paper will be scanned by a machine, the candidate must be careful to properly mark a question, or else it may be evaluated incorrectly by the scanner.
