LSAT—India announces successful first day of remote testing
NEW DELHI: The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) has reported a successful first day of the online, remotely proctored LSAT—India examination on July 19. The national-level law entrance exam is currently active and will be held throughout the week.
On the first day of LSAT—India exam, around 1000 students successfully completed their examinations in three sessions and approximately 5,000 students are registered to take the test over the next seven days.
“We are pleased to be able to provide online testing so that students all across India can earn an LSAT—India score to pursue their dream of a legal education, while protecting the health and safety of our test-takers, testing staff, and the broader community,” said Yusuf Abdul-Kareem, Vice President of LSAC.
According to LSAC, most students were able to successfully complete their exam. Some test takers were initially not able to log into the online testing system because they did not show the proper government-issued identification. LSAC worked with Pearson VUE, the remote proctoring service that is administering the online examination, to remind students of the requirements and help them address their issues.
Abdul-Kareem, while acknowledging that it can be frustrating for students to encounter issues on the exam day, said, “We will continue to help. All students have the opportunity to earn the score they need to pursue their goal of legal education, and we have reserved a number of opportunities to retest at the end of this week for students who experienced technical interruptions or problems with their IDs.”
In order to ensure a smooth test experience for the test takers, the LSAC had also released a Do’s and Don’ts for the exam day. Candidates who are yet to appear in the examination are advised to read the important LSAT—India reminders before appearing in the test.
The LSAT—India is a standardized test for admissions in multiple law colleges and universities across India. Initially, the test was a pen and paper-based test. However, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, LSAC shifted the exam from offline to online remotely proctored mode.
