Welcome to the LSAT Inbox! This is a weekly blog series that answers frequently asked questions about the LSAT®. We encourage you to check back often for answers to more questions you may have as you prepare for the test.
I’m taking the November LSAT, but I’m confused about when and how to schedule.
Scheduling for the November 2023 LSAT will begin on Tuesday, October 24. Scheduling opens at different times depending on what day you want to take the test and what testing modality you prefer. Please refer to the November table for details on scheduling times.
During your assigned scheduling time based on when and where you would like to test, you can schedule your test through Prometric’s ProScheduler tool . You will need your eligibility number in order to schedule your test.
Be advised that even with the staggered scheduling times there may be a wait time to schedule your test. The Prometric ProScheduler tool will inform you of your place in line and alert you when your turn comes up to connect and select your test day and time.
If I schedule the November LSAT for a test center but later decide to take it remotely, can I change my registration?
Yes, you can change your testing modality from in person to remote or vice versa after scheduling your test. If you’ve already scheduled, you can re-schedule your test beginning on Saturday, October 28 at 12 p.m. noon ET. Test center scheduling closes on Friday, November 3 at 11:59 p.m. ET. If you want to change your test from remote to in person, you have until this deadline to do so. Scheduling for remote test takers is open until Sunday, November 5 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
If I’m planning on taking the LSAT in August 2024 or later, do I still need to study for the Analytical Reasoning (logic games) section?
As of August 2024, the LSAT will add a second Logical Reasoning section to replace the existing logic games section. Replacing the current logic games with a second LR section will ensure that the LSAT continues to assess the reasoning skills that are so important to the study and practice of law, while eliminating any concerns about the perceived need for diagramming.
If you plan to take the LSAT before August 2024, the test will remain the same and will still include a logic games section. If you plan to take the LSAT in August 2024 or later, the LSAT will no longer include this section.
Will the replacement of the Analytical Reasoning (logic games) section with an additional Logical Reasoning section make the LSAT easier or harder?
Extensive research, involving hundreds of thousands of test takers over multiple years, has confirmed that substituting a second logical reasoning section for the logic games section had virtually no impact on overall scoring — analysis of over 200,000 test sessions found that the mean score changed by 1/100th of a point.
While there are, of course, some variations at the individual level, for the overwhelming majority of individual test sessions, any shift in scoring was within the margin of error for the test. Indeed, the majority of individual test sessions analyzed showed a change of one point or less as a result of the revised test format.
