Taking the LSAT abroad, question about scaling.

Postby osgiliath » Fri Dec 02, 2011 4:35 am

So if I take the december lsat overseas, it isn't on the same scale as the december lsat in the US, correct? Because overseas versions of the LSAT are all some previous versions of undisclosed LSAT's?

I don't think they are previous tests, but they are different. I thought the LGs of the October test abroad were easy but from what I've seen people who took it in the USA thought the LG section had some difficult q's. It sucks not being able to see an answer sheet online to see what I got wrong though.

I took the october 2011 in south america and it was the same test people took in the US. Same scale. Same experimental.

^ Unagi

Thats because South America is in the same time zone. No need to give different test for them

However, for Europe and Asia and etc, it is conventional that the exams come from one of the previously administered february exams.

^They administer the European exams at the same time too, despite the time difference (so you start at 2pm). I took one there once and canceled, so I don't know if it was an undisclosed test.
