LSAT contents are different for each country!?

Postby pigorhen2 » Sat Oct 06, 2012 11:54 pm

Hi, can I ask a general question? In general, is the American LSAT test (say preptest 61) used exactly (in term of ordering and contents) as it is in ALL other nations including UK, Canada, NZ/Aus and other places? I ask this because on some other forums, the UK RC for this October LSAT is totally different than the US one (one passage about hominids), and NZ/Aus one (motion sickness, photography) when test takers had only 1 RC, it can not be experimental. The UK, NZ one also didn’t seem to have the dreaded fourth LG game (zoning) which is said to have destroyed people in US, but rather something about professor/subjects, cleaning a building and actor/actress+movies/performance. Do any of US test takers happen to have say passages about hominids, motion sickness for RC and professor+subjects, actor/actress on LG

Is the US one harder or other region’s one harder if they’re not equal?

It is my understanding that there are at least 3 versions of any given LSAT test: U.S., Europe, Asia. I'm not certain of that, but it seems to be what was true in my cycle.

Thank you that explains a lot, is it also true that the last two sections (after the break), can NEVER have an experimental section in it?

Nope, not true. For US tests, the experimental fell in the 4th section once, so consider it very unlikely but possible.

Asian test is definitely different. Rumor has it that the asian tests are re-administrations of previously undisclosed tests. Infer what you want from that... (e.g. Asian tests might look like a test in-between PT 61 and 62 as opposed to looking like a test immediately following PT 66).
