- The LSAT—IndiaTM is meant to help anyone with good critical thinking skills. So, there are no questions designed to assess prior legal knowledge, no questions requiring mathematical knowledge and no questions on current affairs or grammar. The LSAT—IndiaTM breaks critical thinking skills down into three main types: logical reasoning, analytical reasoning, and reading comprehension. Since the first of these types is most predictive of success in law school, there are two sections of logical reasoning questions in the LSAT—IndiaTM. There is also one section each of analytical reasoning and reading comprehension questions, which contribute to the predictive validity of the test.
There is no negative marking or penalty for guessing. Only correct answers contribute to a candidate’s score. Therefore, candidates should leave no question unanswered and guess on those questions they cannot carefully consider.
