Prepare for the Test
The multiple-choice questions that make up the LSAT─India reflect a broad range of academic disciplines and are not intended to give any advantage to candidates from a particular academic background. The LSAT─India does not include questions requiring the mastery of any specific discipline or set of facts. For example, it does not test your knowledge of history, political theory, mathematics, or even general knowledge. Rather, it is a test of important critical thinking skills acquired over your educational lifetime. Therefore, you don't need to learn facts by rote for the LSAT─India. You only need to practice the critical thinking skills that it assesses.
Suggested Overall Approach

Taking the Test
Once you have been seated and formally checked in for the test, you will receive your test materials—a test book and an answer sheet. You may open the test book only when instructed by the invigilator. Inform the invigilator immediately if your test book or answer sheet is torn, creased, or unreadable. You must enter all your answers on the answer sheet by blackening the circles completely.
Test sections are taken in the order that they appear in the test book. You are not permitted to go back to an earlier section or go forward to a later section, even if you finish before the section time is called.
You will receive one warning five minutes prior to the end of each section. You must put your pencil down when the invigilator announces that the time is over. Candidates found marking answers even after this announcement may be disqualified. After the test is over, you should remain seated until the invigilator collects and accounts for the answer sheets and test books.
Taking a Break During the Test
There are no scheduled breaks during the test. If you elect to take a break, you will lose that much time from the total testing time allotted for the section and no extra time will be allotted. During a break, you may only use the restroom, and you may not talk to others or leave the area designated by the invigilator.
What Not to Do
Any attempt to impersonate, copy answers from another candidate, give answers to another candidate, or indulge in any other malpractice during the test may lead to cancellation of your score without the possibility of a retest. Evidence of cheating detected in post-test analysis may also lead to score cancellation without the possibility of a retest.
