What is tested on the LSAT?

What is tested on the LSAT? Four core skills.

There are three multiple choice section types on the LSAT: Reading Comprehension, Logical Reasoning, and Logic Games. Each section type challenges a different, but interrelated, set of abilities.

The LSAT, at its core, is a test of your ability to manipulate language in a logical way within a limited amount of time. It is a test of skill, not content. You parse arguments, you rip apart and reconstruct language, and you don’t take any statement for granted. The Four Core Skills essential to LSAT success are all reflections of this.

What is a good LSAT score?

What’s a good LSAT score? When considering your LSAT score goal, it’s always wise to look at average scores at the schools to which you’re applying. For starters, though, here is what you need to know about your LSAT score:

The LSAT is scored on a 120-180 scale. The average LSAT score is about a 151. This relatively small range of scores means that small improvements in performance can increase your score quite a bit. It also means that small improvements in your score can make a big difference in your percentile ranking (sometimes, a one point increase in your score can boost your percentile ranking by as many as 5 points).

Score Predictor is a brief quiz that provides a rough estimate of the score you might receive on the official test if you took the test today. The official test is much longer and covers many more topics and question types, so we make no claims as to the accuracy or predictive value of the results. Score Predictor is merely the first step in preparing for the exam. Good luck!

What to know about LSAT scores: Raw, Scaled and Percentile Scoring

You will receive not one, not two, but three scores on Test Day:

  • A raw score (0-~101), the total number of scored questions answered correctly translated into…
  • A scaled score (120-180), the score by which law schools will evaluate your candidacy; and
  • A percentile score, comparing test-takers across various testing cohorts

Since there is no wrong answer penalty on the LSAT, you score is determined solely by the number of questions you answer correctly. On a typical test, approximately 57 right answers will produce a score of 151 and land you squarely in the 50th percentile, better than half of all test takers. If you add just five correct answers, you’ll move to a 154 and be in the 60th percentile. To a lot of students, that jump of three scaled points (from a 151 to a 154) doesn’t sound very impressive, but when you consider that around 130,000 people take the LSAT each year, that increase means that you’ve passed around 13,000 competitors, applicants potentially vying for the same school(s) you’re trying to get into. Notice that each time you add four or five correct answers, you make a comparable leap past the other test takers. That should tell you just how much you can accomplish, even with the limited time before the next test. It should also underline how important it is to get additional correct answers wherever you can on the test, including sections in which you’re already relatively strong.
