5. LSAT Scores, Guessing, Cancellation, Wrong Answers …

Q. How is the LSAT scored?
A. The LSAT is reported on a scale of 120 to 180. Your score corresponds to a percentile ranking. This means that it is a reflection of how you perform relative to all test takers. There is no established passing or failing score. At the risk of oversimplification:

First your raw score is determined – the number of right answers out of 101 is counted up.

Second – the raw score is then converted to a scaled score which corresponds to a percentile ranking.

For example, a score of 151 reflects a performance in approximately the 50th percentile (although is does vary a bit from test to test).
Q. Do all LSAT questions count the same or do some count more than others?
A. All LSAT questions have exactly the same weighting – they count the same.
Therefore, it is essential that you make sure that you first answer the questions that are easier for you (I emphasize “for you” – different people have different strengths and weaknesses.)

Q. Is there a penalty for selecting the wrong answer?
A. No there is no penalty for selecting the wrong answer.
Therefore, it is essential that you put an answer for every question on the test.
