bubbling after time is called?

Postby nbhatia » Fri Dec 10, 2010 2:00 am

hey guys

so i always end up having 1 or 2 questions left in a section which i have to end up guessing on, or, read while time is running out, but i was wondering how strict are they with that..like once time is called can you just jot down one D and stop?

second thing, if you did leave one empty, or you were reading the answer choices when time ran out, so you know its c but you cant put it down, what stops someone from quickly putting it down on when you start the next section (assuming is not the last one)?

thanks

Try this at your own peril; it is a good way to get disqualified from the test and receive a disciplinary notice on your LSAC file.

Really, really bad idea. There's a time limit for a reason, and it's likely to be enforced pretty closely.

I'm sure people get away with this all the time. However, I saw a guy get his test taken away for a similar infraction last time I took the LSAT. Kind of a tough risk/reward equation, maybe 70-80% chance at an extra 1-2 points, 1% chance that you get caught and law school is more or less over for you.

You shouldn't bubble after time is called. I'd say there's about a 5-10 second window, but don't go back and bubble sections. It's a bad idea and you could get caught. Maybe somebody does notice you bubbled in a couple of answers. Then no more law school for you!

I had an additional question: if you're in the process of filling in a bubble and 'time' is called, can you finish?

This happened to me twice on the Oct. test and I did not continue filling in the bubble once 'time' was called and I ended up with two little half bubbles. It was still counted but kind of scary.
