LSAT-India 2020 Analysis

LSAT-India, the gateway to some top private law schools like Jindal Global Law School, NMIMS, UPES etc, was conducted over a period of four days starting July 19. For the first time ever, the exam was conducted in a home proctored online format. Until last year, the exam was conducted offline wherein students used to write the exam in a paper-pencil format at a designated exam center. However, due to pandemic, the exam this year was conducted as a computer-based test and home proctored format.

While the paper was on the expected lines, there were instances where the exam couldn’t start on time and the paper has to be postponed for the later part of the day.

Here is a consolidated analysis of the paper across the three days:

Reading Comprehension:

Students found the section to be easier, though some had trouble with the literature-based passages. The passages were not long and the questions that followed were quite easy. The questions were inferential and required contextual understanding of the text. If one had included variety in reading while preparing for the exam, one would have found the passages to be easy and could have easily maximized the attempts. This section had four options given for each of the questions. Overall, the difficulty level for this section can be summed up as easy-moderate. An attempt of 17-18 questions can be considered good in this section.

Analytical Reasoning:

As per the pattern of the exam, there were two sections on logical reasoning. Questions were based on flaws in the argument, strengthening/weakening the conclusion, and assumptions madeauthor.Students found the first section of Logical Reasoning to be quite easier compared to the second one. Like Analytical Reasoning, this section had five answer choices given for each question. An attempt of 14-16 in Logical Reasoning 1 and 16-18 in Logical Reasoning 2 can be considered good.

Overall, the paper was on standard lines and an attempt of 65-70 was easily possible.

The scores would be converted to percentiles and that will be used as a reference by the respective institutes accepting LSAT-India score to admit students for the academic session 2020-21.
