The LSAT is used by many law schools as a part of their admissions process. It is accepted by every ABA accredited law school and is designed to measure skills that are considered necessary for success in their programs. Whether you are starting your preparation for the LSAT or have gotten stuck part of the way through, signing up for a Boston LSAT course through Varsity Tutors could be beneficial.

If you have an interest in attending law school at a university such as Boston College Law School, the Boston University School of Law, or Harvard Law School, you may need to do well on the LSAT to have a chance at getting accepted.

The LSAT is taken on tablets that are available at the testing center. Answering a question requires you to choose an answer by tapping on the screen. Using the tablets offers a couple of benefits, including a timer that gives you a warning when you're within five minutes of the end of the exam and also the ability to flag and highlight answers you might want to review if you have extra time.

In terms of scoring, the LSAT is graded between 120 and 180 points. Your score on the LSAT is based on how many questions you answer correctly. Every question on the exam is weighted the same so the test is more concerned with how many questions you get right rather than looking at any specific question you answer correctly. Additionally, there is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly, so there's no risk in guessing if you're not sure about the correct answer.
