Do you need to write the LSAT?
The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker’s score. These sections include one Reading Comprehension section, one Analytical Reasoning section, and two Logical Reasoning sections. The unscored section, commonly referred to as the variable section, typically is used to pretest new test questions or new test forms. Identification of the unscored section is not available until you receive your score report.
The LSAT has three types of questions:
- Reading comprehension
- Analytical reasoning
- Logical reasoning
