Law School Admission Council reschedules LSAT-India to June 14. Here's all you need to know
For students who wish to take the test before the CBSE, LSAT-India will open an administration on March 25. Registration for that session will open Wednesday, February 3 and close on March 14
To ensure fairness for students who have registered for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 examinations in May, the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) announced that it will reschedule the 2021 LSAT-India, originally scheduled to begin May 10 to June 14. By allotting more time between tests, students will be able to adequately prepare for both examinations.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the LSAT-India will be administered through an online test delivery system utilising artificial intelligence-assisted remote proctoring to secure the integrity and validity of the test. The LSAT-India will be delivered over several days and time slots in the week starting June 14 in order to accommodate the large number of anticipated test takers. The deadline for registration has also been extended to June 4.
For students who wish to take the test before the CBSE, LSAT-India will open an administration on March 25. Registration for that session will open Wednesday, February 3 and close on March 14. Aspirants who choose this option can take the test in March — well before the scheduled board exams — and use these scores for their law college application. An aspirant can also sit for a re-test in June and have their best score reported for their preferred college for admissions.
Students can register for the LSAT—India 2021 by visiting discoverlaw.in/register-for-the-test.
Students who register prior to February 12 will be eligible for the special early-bird price of Rs 3,499 per test for the March or June test administration. Students who register after February 12 will pay the standard price of Rs 3,799 for either administration. Students who register after February 12 but wish to sit for both tests, will be able to pay a discounted fee of Rs 7,300.
After the closure of registration period, candidates will receive scheduling details and instructions on how to take the online test to facilitate a seamless experience. LSAC will provide additional information about the online LSAT-India in the weeks ahead. The LSAT-India is being used by many top law colleges in India as the entrance exam for securing admission to their law programmes. The LSAT-India allows students to take a single test to apply to many top law schools, making it a great choice for students who want to maximise their opportunities and save time, stress, and money.
