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!


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.
