Law School Admission Test (LSAT) 2021 Postponed In View Of CBSE Board Exam Schedule
LSAT 2021 will now begin on June 14, 2021. It will be held as an online, remote-proctored test.
The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) on January 27 announced a postponement of LSAT 2021 exam due to the upcoming CBSE Class 12 board exams. LSAT 2021 will now begin on June 14, 2021. Earlier the exam was scheduled to begin on May 10. The registration deadline has also been extended to June 4, 2021. The exam will be held online.
“Due to the ongoing pandemic, the LSAT-India will be administered through an online test delivery system utilizing artificial intelligence-assisted remote proctoring to secure the integrity and validity of the test,” LSAC said.
CBSE Board exams will be held from May 4 to June 10. If students want to take LSAT before their boards, they can also take the exam in March. Registration for that session of LSAT 2021 will open on February 3 and close on March 14.
“Aspirants who choose this option can take the test in March - well before the scheduled board exams - and use these scores for their law college application. An aspirant can also re-test in June and have their best score reported for their preferred college for admissions,” the authorities said.
The decision to reschedule LSAT 2021 has been taken to ensure fairness for students who have registered for the CBSE class 12 board exams in May and to accommodate a large number of anticipated test-takers.
