The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) on Thursday announced that it has extended the dates for conducting the online LSAT-India examination, by a month.
New Date for online LSAT-India: July 19
Last Date for online Registration: July 5
The decision to push the schedule one month ahead has been taken to accommodate students appearing for CBSE Class 12th Board exams, scheduled to be held between July 1, 2020 and July 15, 2020.
Earlier this month, the LSAC had announced its plan to administer the 2020 LSAT—India online. It was intimated that candidates seeking admission to law schools in the country will be able to take the LSAT—India starting the week of June 14, using an online test delivery system with artificial intelligence-assisted remote proctoring to ensure the integrity and validity of the test.
Through a press note issued today it is intimated that the online LSAT—India will now be administered starting 19 July.
Further, students who wish to take the online LSAT—India from the comfort and security of their own home should register as soon as possible at www.discoverlaw.in and no later than 5 July.
The examination will be conducted using the AI-enabled remote proctored online test delivery system to allow candidates to test from the safety and comfort of their homes. The examination will be delivered in 3 time slots over 4 days starting 19 July. Candidates will be assigned a time slot. Test takers who have technical problems will have the opportunity to retest 2-3 days after the closing of the main testing window.
Since the scheduled has been pushed ahead, the added one month's time will be used by the LSAC to make additional information available to candidates to ease their concerns on testing on an online format. Multiple communications will be sent to candidates to familiarize them on the test procedures, do's and don'ts, and the test interface to help them get prepared for taking the test on the new format.
"By moving the testing period to the week of 19 July, we are accommodating the needs of students who need to sit for their CBSE board exams, and we can also help students be better prepared for the new LSAT—India online format," the press note states.
LSAT—India is one of the leading entrance tests for undergraduate and postgraduate law programmes in India. It measures skills that are considered essential for success in law school.
Currently, the LSAT—India is the only law school admission test for multiple colleges that is available for safe online testing during the COVID-19 emergency.
