Law School Admission Test for India
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.
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.
The LSAT Global, the original test is for admissions to law schools in North America and law programs in North America are a postgraduate study. There are degrees that you get after you've already achieved your bachelor's so it's like going to your graduate school, you go to law school. It's a graduate level program whereas in India the legal study, there's postgraduate legal study but you can also get an undergraduate degree in law and LLB or many variations on that.
To boil it down, think of the difference between the test taker in North America who's taking the LSAT they have gone to college and are 22-23 of age versus the typical LSAT India test taker, they are just coming out of High School and have not gone to college and are 17- 18 years old. There is a big gap there in education so the reason we have LSAT India and we don't just give the LSAT is because in fact the LSAT India has to be made somewhat easier than the traditional LSAT because again the LSAT India test taker hasn't had three- four years of college so they don't have that extra experience and practice and those skills. So we design the LSAT India model on the LSAT but it is specifically made to be easier and more appropriate for the person who is taking it but also in the ways that we can make it appropriate for the Indian context.
In these extraordinary times we've been forced to go online for the lSAT India and I think it's going to have certain advantages for our test takers because they don't have to worry about exposing themselves or their family by having to go out into the world as they can take the test from the comfort of their home so that's certainly the biggest benefit. The biggest concern of an online home test is malpractice or misconduct. People think that in the online exam it would be easier to cheat and there will be lots is misconduct and I understand that concern it's certainly something that we've thought of a lot about but I think the concern is overblown because if you think about the difference between sitting in a classroom with 20-40 people with one or two Proctor's or invigilator in the room versus sitting in front of your computer where a machine is watching you and you only and everything you do for the entire time. It doesn't get distracted or tired and will flag any kind of suspicious behavior for review by a human, someone of our experts. I think in some sense it is actually going to be quite difficult to get away with any kind of misconduct so I do understand that concern. Our partners at Pearson VUE have a really sophisticated online technological platform that we are going to be using and I am looking forward to seeing how the students benefit from it.
