The procedure of Measuring Test scores:
The scoring of LSAT exam is based on the percentile basis, comparing each candidate’s performance to that of others from the same group (Five Year Integrated LL.B Programme or LL.M./LL.B. Programme). A score of one candidate will not be compared with those belonging from the different group since they are based on group performance. Example- If an Undergraduate candidate earning an LSAT India score of 82.5 has performed better on the test than 82.5 percent of the total Undergraduate candidate pool. This score does not indicate what the candidate’s standing would be within the post-undergraduate candidate pool. It should be noted that this score does not mean that the candidate answered 82.5 percent of the LSAT-India questions correctly. Thus, LSAT-India scores tell law schools the relative strength of the critical thinking skills measured by the test for each candidate in comparison to the others in his or her candidate pool.
