I recently took PT 63 168, LR 24/25 LG 21/23 LR 22/26 RC 21/27. I have PTs 65 66 67 68 69 70 left to take. To score 170-173 on the actual test will I have needed to have scored at least a 170 on all six of them? Or would 3/6 4/6 be good enough? Before taking PT 63 I had been re-using tests in the 50s with last one taken being PT 54. Should I re-use PTs 55-62 before I take PT 65 to make sure I score a 170 on PTs 65-70 and on the real test


Let's do this the LSAT way. Is it necessary that you get 170s on previous exams to get 170+ in a future exam? No, but it sure would help in terms of confidence. And getting in 170s during review is not going to guarantee anything either. I had 170s on over 12 tests in the two weeks before October and I still under performed. It's all about how you deal with the test during that day. Don't be stressed out. Try to really focus on your weaknesses and review like a hawk. Drill your weaknesses and PT what you learn. See if it shows improvement on PT. If you feel ready, go for it. Good luck.
