What should be one month strategy to prepare LSAT Examination?

I would start with very basic & familiarization of different type of questions. Once you done with the basic questions then you take one practice test & just focus on the section. When you done, look at the performance, really look at the finding areas in the entrance you cover on. Try to find your weakness & analyse your performance, You wouldn’t keep the same mistake again & again. Doing section level practice is very important, Go back & Try to find out where you are wrong.

Understanding of your strength & weakness is something, Only you can do. You know yourself well. Alternately you can build up a test under the time limit to get the experience of real test from beginning to end.

The student has 80 percentile, How much score in LSAT is good to get a college in India?

You should be in touch with the college & ask them about the eligibility of score. LSAT doesn’t have such standard but if student scored 80 then from my prospective, It is pretty good score.

Is the time limitation section wise ot time limitation for the entire examination in LSAT?

Each section’s time is limited to that particular section. Each section is 35 minutes long & once you complete that 35 minutes that section ends and you’ll not able to go back that section.
