LSAT SCORING

Your LSAT score is based on the number of questions answered correctly (your raw score).

All questions on the various test sections are weighted exactly the same. The total number you get right is what matters for your score, not which particular questions you get right or wrong.

There is no deduction for incorrect answers, so there is no risk in guessing if you don’t know the right answer to any particular question.

Raw scores are converted to an LSAT scale that ranges from 120 to 180, with 120 being the lowest possible score and 180 being the highest possible score.
