The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) 2021, which was scheduled to be conducted in June this year, has been preponed. The examination will now be conducted on May 29 in multiple slots across the country, as per the official announcement.
Students can still register online for the examination. The LSAT 2021 registration window is set to close on May 14 this year. Students who wish to appear for the exam can register online through the official website, discoverlaw.in/register-for-the-test.
“In response to the postponement of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 examinations, LSAC Global is announcing that the June examinations of the 2021 LSAT—India will be held over multiple days with slots starting 29 May 2021,” it was announced.
The CBSE Class 12 board exams 2021, which were earlier scheduled to be conducted from May 4, have now been postponed to June, clashing with the earlier dates of the LSAT 2021 exams. The new dates for the CBSE exams have not been announced yet.
LSAT 2021 to be held online
The official statement further reads, “Due to uncertainty of the date for the Board exams, which will not be announced until at least June 1, LSAC Global felt it was unfair for the current class of law school aspirants to have to put their exam preparations on hold.”
While talking about the clash of CBSE exams and LSAT 2021, the Council said, “Most importantly, the date change assures students that the exam will not fall on concurrent dates, giving students the flexibility to adequately prepare for both examinations.”
This year, the LSAT 2021 examination will be conducted online as a remote proctored test. Applicants can prepare for the test using free materials from the Discover Law website
Students will be able to seek admissions in Law courses in many Indian colleges on the basis of their LSAT scores.
