LSAT Syllabus 2019

As LSAT 2019 is a standardized test for admission to various programs at law schools throughout Northern America, the test conveniently measures skills which are crucial for success in law schools. Thus, the LSAT 2019 syllabus cannot be specifically identified and instead focuses on general areas of study. This includes the comprehension of byzantine texts with appropriate insight and understanding, the management and organization of information as well as the ability to effectively conjure reasonable inferences, think practically, critically, and efficiently analyze and evaluate the arguments of others. 

 

There are primarily three different sections in the LSAT 2019:

  • Reading comprehension: It measures the candidate’s ability to effectively read advanced text with significant understanding and insight and derive inferences from the same. 

  • Analytical reasoning: This section measures the candidate’s ability to efficiently understand various relationship structures and the candidate’s capability to delineate logical conclusions in relation to the same.

  • Logical reasoning: This section evaluates the candidate’s ability to productively analyze, critically evaluate, as well as complete arguments as they occur in ordinary language.

For candidates to apply to various law school programs and in turn, be selected for the same, there are two things of importance which are required. The crucial items for LSAT 2019 selection are:

  • LSAT 2019 scores

LSAT Score 2019

The LSAT 2019 score is calculated from the number of questions which the candidate answers correctly. As there is no negative marking in the exam, and all questions carry the same weight, the raw score is evaluated from the total number of correctly answered multiple-choice questions. The raw scores for LSAT are then converted into a scaled score through the statistical method of ‘equating’. Scores are provided on a 120-180 point scale with the minimum possible score being 120.  

 

The score report for LSAT 2019 will contain the following result-related details:

  • The candidate’s average LSAT score, in case there is more than one reportable score. 

  • The candidate’s LSAT 2019 score band according to the 120-180 point scale. LSA score bands provide information on the candidate’s precision in the test and also emphasize the face that the candidate’s LSAT 2019 score is only an estimate of the true proficiency level.
