How many seconds are you given between sections?

Postby crazi4law » Wed Aug 08, 2012 8:24 pm

For those of you who have taken the actual LSAT already, how many seconds were you given between the end of one section and the start of the next? (excluding the break between sections three and four)

Thanks!

For me it was like 5 seconds. Pretty much immediately.

It's longer than I thought it would be, maybe like half a minute? They take time to say this section is over, put your pencils down, etc. So you get at least 15 seconds I'd say to gather your thoughts, but I only took it once so it's just one experience.

It depends on your proctors.
The first time I took it there were literally 5 seconds to make the transition.
The second time our proctors took it slow and it was a good 20 seconds.

It depends on the proctor. When I asked mine how much time there would be between sections, he and the rest of the people in the room looked at me like I was crazy. Uh, legit question homies, chill.

My administration it was 30 - 45 seconds, but you likely won't get any more time than that.

Prepare as if you will get 2 seconds, and learn to reset your watch and move on accordingly. The proctors are so variable that there's no use predicting.

I only got a few seconds. After they called time there was maybe 5 seconds and then they started reading the prompt for the next section and then told us to start.

Thanks for the responses :D

So the proctors always read the 'Directions' at the top of each section before time starts? In that case, I would have at least 10-15 seconds to relax before actually starting the next section, correct?

They don't always read the directions.

Assume that the proctors are completely irrational, clueless beings. Prep under this assumption.

My proctor was pretty attractive. I should have talked to her after the exam even though she was possibly 20 years older than me.


Also the time between the sections seemed longer than a couple of seconds because when she was giving instructions I envisioned her speaking passionately to me in French.
