If you’re registered for an upcoming LSAT-Flex exam, review the steps below to ensure your test day runs smoothly.
Timeline: Before your administration’s assistance request deadline
To take the LSAT-Flex, you’ll need:
- A quiet, well-lit, private room in which to take the test
- A laptop or desktop computer with a Windows or Mac operating system and at least 1024 MB of RAM
- A webcam and microphone
- A strong and stable Internet connection
- Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser
If you don’t have the required equipment or available space needed to take the LSAT-Flex, please complete the Assistance Request form in your LSAC online account by the assistance request deadline associated with your exam. We will work with you to try to address your needs. LSAC is committed to ensuring that every test taker has the equipment and other resources they need to take the LSAT-Flex.
Timeline: Once scheduling sign-up opens
(About two weeks prior to the first day of testing)
The LSAT-Flex is a remotely proctored exam. Before you can test, you’ll need to schedule a testing time with ProctorU. You’ll receive an email from LSACinfo@LSAC.org with more details about how to schedule your exam shortly before sign-up opens.
If you do not already have an account with ProctorU, this email will include credentials that you can use to set up your account.
If you need assistance scheduling your exam time, please contact ProctorU by phone at 855.772.8678 or through the Live Chat feature available in your ProctorU account.
Timeline: About two days before testing begins
About two days before your LSAT-Flex administration begins, we strongly encourage you to log into your LSAC LawHub account using your LSAC username and password, to ensure your credentials are correct. Once you’ve successfully logged in, a new “LSAT-Flex” link should be available in the left-hand menu. Selecting this “LSAT-Flex” link should bring up a message that you are eligible to take the LSAT-Flex. If the “LSAT-Flex” entry is not appearing in your LawHub menu, please contact us directly at 215.968.1001 or email us at LSACinfo@LSAC.org, with “JANUARY LSAT-FLEX ISSUE” in the subject line of your email.
Please note: The sections in LawHub’s LSAT sample tests are always presented in the same order — first, analytical reasoning; second, logical reasoning; last, reading comprehension. However, test sections may be presented in any order during your actual LSAT-Flex exam.
If you’d like to familiarize yourself with the ProctorU startup process, please review the video links below. These videos are not specific to the LSAT-Flex, but they may be useful to you in familiarizing yourself with the startup process:
Timeline: Before your scheduled exam time
Before you begin your exam, make sure to have the following:
- Your ProctorU username and password
- Your LawHub username and password (This is the same username and password you use to access your LSAC online account)
- A nondigital acceptable government-issued ID
Your testing space should be a quiet, well-lit, and private work area where you can complete the test without interruption. A hard work surface is required. It is very important to have a strong and stable internet connection in order to have a successful remote testing experience. Ensure that your workspace is clean and clear of all prohibited items.
The following electronic prohibited items must be removed from the room:
- More than one cell phone. (One cell phone is allowed for use as a mirror during check-in as instructed by your proctor, but it must be turned off and put away as instructed by the proctor before the test begins.)
- Timers of any kind, electronic cigarettes, fitness-tracking devices, digital watches, calculator watches, chronograph watches (digital or nondigital), beepers, pagers, personal digital assistants (PDAs), calculators, cameras, recording devices, listening devices (including, but not limited to, headphones, ear buds, air pods, and other electronic listening devices and/or noise-cancelling devices other than generic foam ear plugs), headsets, and iPods and other media players.
- Tablets, laptops, personal computers, or any other electronic device not being used to take the test.
The following nonelectronic prohibited items can remain in the room, but they must be put away and not accessed or referenced during the test:
- Briefcases, handbags, or backpacks of any kind.
- Hats or hoods, except religious apparel, may not be worn.
- Sunglasses may not be worn.
Books, printed materials, and any notes written before the start of the test.
To start your LSAT-Flex exam, log in to your ProctorU account at your scheduled exam time. Once logged in, click “Start Session.” The system will guide you through the setup process. Then, your proctor will direct you to LSAC’s LawHub, where you’ll launch the LSAT-Flex.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Test Day
- Start by logging in to your ProctorU account at your scheduled test time, using your ProctorU username and password, at https://go.proctoru.com.
- Once you have logged in to your ProctorU account, select “Start Session.”
- You will be guided through (1) a system check, to make sure your computer meets the requirements to test, and (2) a verification of your identity, in which both your face and your government ID will be photographed.
- The system will guide you to download and install the ProctorU Logmeinrescue applet on your machine. If your computer has very restrictive settings for downloading/installing software, you may need to adjust them to allow this step to occur.
- Once you have completed these preliminary steps, the proctor will request that you select “Begin Exam,” which will launch the LSAC LawHub testing interface.
- You will need to log in to the LSAC LawHub testing interface using your LSAC username and password.
- The proctor will ask you to read the test rules aloud and then indicate your agreement by checking an onscreen box.
- At this point, the proctor will enter a password indicating you have completed all the required steps, which will activate an LSAT-Flex start button on your screen.
- When you select the onscreen start button, your LSAT-Flex will begin.
Should you encounter any problems during this startup process, you can select ProctorU’s “Blue Owl” button to request help or ask your proctor to assist you.
We wish you the best of luck on your test and encourage you to keep moving forward on your path to a legal education.
