Pearson VUE LSAT
The LSAT—IndiaTM is a test of reasoning and reading skills, not a test to see whether you happened to have memorized the right facts or equations. The theory behind the LSAT—IndiaTM is democratic and inclusive. It holds that students acquire critical thinking skills over their educational lifetimes, and that these skills are the most important for the study of law.

Test Pattern & Scoring
The LSAT—IndiaTM is a standardized test of reading and verbal reasoning skills designed by the USA-based Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for use by law schools in India. The LSAT—IndiaTM is patterned after the world-renowned LSAT®. It is developed by testing professionals with advanced degrees in psychometrics, English, linguistics, and logic.
It is not created by ad hoc committees of faculty. The LSAT—IndiaTM pattern rigorously follows prescribed specifications that are essentially the same every year. Each test question has been subjected to multiple levels of review and to a system of pretesting, so candidates can be assured that every question has one and only one correct answer.
The LSAT—IndiaTM is meant to help anyone with good critical thinking skills. So, there are no questions designed to assess prior legal knowledge, no questions requiring mathematical knowledge and no questions on current affairs or grammar.
The LSAT—IndiaTM breaks critical thinking skills down into three main types: logical reasoning, analytical reasoning, and reading comprehension.
Since the first of these types is most predictive of success in law school, there are two sections of logical reasoning questions in the LSAT—IndiaTM. There is also one section each of analytical reasoning and reading comprehension questions, which contribute to the predictive validity of the test.
There is no negative marking or penalty for guessing. Only correct answers contribute to a candidate’s score. Therefore, candidates should leave no question unanswered and guess on those questions they cannot carefully consider.
