Details on The NEW Upcoming LSAT Format and New LSAT Dates (2021-2022)!

The LSAC announced new, upcoming LSAT dates. In addition, the LSAC described the NEW format for the LSAT, beginning August 2021. As always, ScoreItUp courses will be fully prepared! See below for highlights:

  • NO substantive (content) changes: The same types of LSAT questions, types of LSAT sections, and questions per section will be on the future LSAT as there are on the current LSAT-Flex.
  • LSAT-Flex (current) format: Upcoming LSATs (April and June 2021) will continue to be in the LSAT-Flex format. Here are the key details:
    • Three 35-minute sections (unless you get a time accommodation) without a break.
    • The three sections consist of one Logical Reasoning, one Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games) and one Reading Comp section.
    • Each section will be graded and part of your LSAT score.
    • Taken at home, monitored by a webcam.
    • LSAT Writing section (35 minutes) taken on a different day, and required to be completed (if you haven’t already done one) before LSAC will release your LSAT score.
  • Future LSAT Format: Beginning in August 2021, the LSAT format will be modified slightly, and will remain in this new format for at least 2-3 years. Here are the key details:
    • FOUR 35-minute sections (unless you get a time accommodation) with a 15-minute break at the half-way point (i.e., between the 2nd and 3rd section).
    • As with the current LSAT-Flex, the three GRADED sections will include one Logical Reasoning, one Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games) and one Reading Comp section.
    • The fourth section will be an ungraded “experimental” section. The ungraded “experimental” section could be either Logical Reasoning, Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games) or Reading Comp (and no, you won’t know which one is “experimental” when taking the exam!).
    • Grading anticipated to be analogous to the current LSAT-Flex.
    • Taken at home, monitored by a webcam (like with the current LSAT-Flex).
    • LSAT Writing section (35 minutes) taken on a different day, and required to be completed (if you haven’t already done one) before LSAC will release your LSAT score.
