LSAT Students Testimonials

Arka Banerjee Choudhury, LSAT student, Law Entrance
Arka Banerjee Choudhury

Of all the law-school entrance tests that I have appeared for, LSAT-India 2015 was definitely the most systematic one. Unlike the other tests that encourage rote memorization, LSAT-India was based solely on reasoning abilities and was thus a true test of aptitude.

Andre Jaggi, LSAT student, Law Entrance

The LSAT - India examination is a test of your Logical Reasoning and English abilities - and therefore requires the most amount of endurance during the examination. The preparation for LSAT - India is not as complicated because there aren't as much variety as far as sections go, but the actual test is more arduous than CLAT or NLU - Delhi because of the sheer standard of the aptitude required.
