LSAT Score 2017

  • LSAT Scores are based on the number of questions answered correctly also known as Raw Score.
  • The Raw scores are then converted to an LSAT Scale, ranging from 120 to 180, 120 being the lowest score and 180 being the highest possible score.
  • To calculate it, a statistical procedure called equating is followed. It is a method that adjusts minor differences in difficulty between test forms.

Note:There is no negative marking for incorrect answers, nor are individual questions on the various test sections weighted differently.

How are LSAT Scores Released?

LSAT scores can be received in two ways.

  1. Online (via Email)
  2. Offline (regular post)

Candidates with an LSAC account can easily check their scores and instructions and information about score release by logging in to their account.

  • Candidates must wait for a few hours on the scheduled online scores release date as it may take time to send the email due to heavy internet traffic.
  • It may take up to one week from the scheduled offline scores release date for scores to reach via regular mail.
  • All dates mentioned above are subject to change upon unforeseen circumstances.
