Advantage Testing LSAT Q&A

How did the LSAT change in response to COVID-19?

In response to COVID-19, LSAC introduced the remotely proctored LSAT-Flex. Since April 2020, all LSATs have been offered as LSAT-Flex tests, and LSAC will continue to offer the LSAT-Flex until June 2021. With only one logical reasoning (arguments) section and no experimental section, the LSAT-Flex is shorter than the standard LSAT. The LSAT-Flex is still scored on a scale of 120 to 180. Note that LSAT-Flex tests taken from April to August 2020 do not apply toward testing limits (the number of times an applicant is allowed to take the LSAT within a given period), but all LSAT-Flex tests after this period will apply to the testing limits.

Starting in August 2021, the LSAT will have four sections (instead of the traditional five sections). There will be one logical reasoning (arguments) section, one reading comprehension section, one analytical reasoning (logic games) section, and one unscored experimental section. The LSAT will still be scored on a scale of 120 to 180. LSAC will continue to offer a remote proctoring option until at least June 2022 and may also provide an option for students to take the LSAT at test centers once they can safely do so.
