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.
We do, in fact administer the global LSAT in India for people who want to apply for law school in North America or elsewhere and I do think that students who are interested in going to law school in India should take the LSAT India and get into LSAT India accepting law school and it's certainly possible that if a student has global aspiration and want to study internationally,it is a very tried and true thing to do to get your undergraduate degree in law and then study in US Or Canada and get your LLM degree in law so it's a very standard path that people take. It gives you the grounding in Indian law and then it gives you that international exposure in the LLM degree.
