LSAT same test for International and USA?

Postby iRunShow » Fri Jan 13, 2012 6:30 pm

Hi does anyone know if the international test is the same as the USA test? For the SAT they are different.

Thanks

The same scored sections are administered to everyone that takes the LSAT at US/Canada/Caribbean test centers under standard test conditions on the regular scheduled non Saturday Sabbath observer administration date.

Saturday Sabbath observers that take the test on a different day and international test takers are typically administered a different LSAT in order to prevent sharing of detailed information about the test content during the time gaps between the administrations to prevent people from gaining an unfair advantage (for instance, getting details about the key deductions for the logic games or other specific test content information that could give somebody an unfair advantage).

Internationally administered test-forms are not disclosed so you will not receive a copy of the test after scores are released. LSAC has really tightened down with many test security measures in recent years due in part to the availability of easy instant word-wide communication methods technology and the internet now make possible.
