Admit Card

In order to be admitted to the LSAT 2018, candidates must submit two forms of identification:

  • A government-issued ID,
  • A printout of your admission ticket that includes the photo that the candidate uploaded through the LSAC account.

The identity should be current (in case it is expired, it should not be more than 90 days of the test date) and should include:

  • First name (exactly as mentioned in the LSAT 2018 registration)
  • Last name (exactly as mentioned in the LSAT 2018 registration)
  • Date of birth
  • A recent and recognizable photo

Candidates should confirm that the first and last name listed on their government-issued ID matches the name printed on the LSAT 2018 Admission Ticket.


Selection Procedure

Two main factors considered by LAW schools to select candidates are:

  • The LSAT 2018 scores
  • The candidate’s performance in academics.



LSAT 2018 score is based on the number of questions answered correctly (the raw score). There is no deduction for incorrect answers, nor are individual questions on the various test sections weighted differently. Raw scores are converted to an LSAT scale that ranges from 120 to 180, with 120 being the lowest possible score and 180 the highest possible score. This is done through a statistical procedure known as equating, a method that adjusts for minor differences in difficulty between test forms.

The Score Report will contain

  • LSAT 2018 Scores
  • Results of all tests up to 12 for which the candidate has registered since June 1, 2012, including absences and cancellations. Scores earned prior to June 2012 are not reportable.
  • Average score, if the candidate has more than one reportable score on file.
  • The candidates score band if his/her score was earned on the 120–180 scale. Score bands reflect the precision of the LSAT and are reported to emphasize that the candidates LSAT 2018 score is an estimate of their actual proficiency level. A score band is reported for each individual score, as well as for their average score, if available.
  • A Candidate’s percentile rank, which will reflect the percentage of candidates whose scores were lower than a particular candidate during the previous three testing years. A percentile rank is reported for each of the candidate’s scores.



The LSAT 2018 Result will be emailed after the LSAT 2018 entrance exam results are announced for those candidates who hold an LSAT 2018 account. If a candidate does not have an account, then LSAC will mail the test score to the valid address within four weeks of the entrance test. The scoring range in LSAT is 120-180. The scoring process follows a statistical process called equating. The exam is based on the number of questions answered correctly.
