What’s on the LSAT?

The LSAT is split into five sections: four sections of multiple-choice questions and one writing section. Each section is timed at 35 minutes, so the total time limit for the test is 2 hours and 20 minutes.

You only have to take the writing section if you don’t have a previous writing sample on file with LSAC. If you do have to take it, you’ll take it separately from the multiple-choice sections (usually on a completely different day).

Experimental Section

One of the four multiple-choice sections is experimental, which means the questions in that section will not count toward your score. This section will fall under one of the other three section types (Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, or Reading Comprehension).

Here’s the trick: you won’t know which section of the test is the experimental section.

This means you’ll need to go through every section of the test as if it’s being scored.

Test Outline

Now, let’s take a closer look at the different sections of the LSAT.

1 writing sample

The purpose of this section is to assess your argumentative writing skills. You’ll be given a scenario and two corresponding positions or courses of action, one of which you’ll have to choose to write your essay about.

Your essay will be sent to every school you apply to.

35 minutes

For this section, you’ll be given four passages to read in total, each with about 5 to 8 questions. These questions are designed to test your ability to understand the structure and purpose of a text, as well as the point of view of the author.

35 minutes

For this section, the questions are designed to act as “logic games” that test your ability to analyze situations, draw conclusions, and apply logic to complex scenarios. Most of the questions are “if/then” questions.

35 minutes

For this section, the questions are designed to test your ability to deconstruct arguments and identify how the various parts of an argument function. The questions are sourced from things like magazines, newspapers, and debates.

How to Register

To get started with the registration process, you’ll need to create an LSAC account on their website. This will allow you to submit an application and pay the testing fee, which is $222.

How is the LSAT Scored?

The test is scored using a scaled scoring method. Here’s how it works:

For every question you answer correctly, you get one point added to your raw score. At the end of the test, your final raw score will be converted to a scaled score. This scaled score will range somewhere between 120 and 180.

The score you need to pass the LSAT will vary from school to school.

The reason your raw score is converted to a scaled score is because everyone who takes the LSAT is given a slightly different set of questions. Since everyone has a different arrangement of questions, and because some questions are harder than others, converting your raw score to a scaled score ensures a more even playing field.

Retaking the LSAT

If you didn’t get the score you wanted on your first try, that’s okay! You can retake the LSAT three times in a testing year and up to seven times in your lifetime.
