Tests and exams are the last thing that most people want to hear but when it comes to certain careers like medical nursing or being a lawyer, it’s mandatory to take a standard test. These tests are put in place due to the competitive and sensitive nature of the career and they aim to sift through the candidates so as to get the best qualified ones in the particular fields.
The LSAT (Law School Admission Test) which is offered four times a year and is marked out of 180 points is also used to determine which schools the applicants will attend i.e. should you want to go to a top league school, you should aim to score very high marks on the test. The test takes three and a half hours and one is required to pay a fee before sitting for it.
The test is comprised of four sections (logical reasoning, analytical, reasoning, reading comprehension as well as an essay). The logical reasoning questions are about 50% of the whole test and they aim to see your ability to see through the flaws, assumptions as well as valid points in an argument. For the reading comprehension, you will be given long passages with the aim of checking your understanding.
Then there is the analytical reasoning which comes in the form of games and it tests your ability to relate things properly and come up with the best strategies. Lastly is the essay which is fairly easy for most people.
That said the value of all the questions is the same so prepare thoroughly to ensure you sail through and start with the easiest question first so as to get ample time to tackle the hard ones. Ensure you fill all the bubbles before submitting the test even if you are guessing the answers you never know you might pick a few right answers and add to your points.
