The first ever fully online, remote-proctored and AI-Enabled LSAT-India 2020 test was successfully completed on 26th July. LSAT-India was taken by students aspiring for admission to the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS). Starting on 19th July, LSAT-India 2020 exam was conducted on 6 different days testing approximately 6,000 students aspiring to join JGLS in different academic programmes.

Results: LSAT-India results are expected in the second week of August. This test is owned and administered by Law School Admission Council (LSAC) Pennsylvania USA and conducted in India by their affiliate Pearson VUE.

Professor (Dr.) C Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University and Founding Dean of Jindal Global Law School observed: "LSAT-India 2020 Exam has been a great success. These are extraordinary times when the world of higher education and universities have been challenged by the COVID-19 global pandemic. I am most delighted to share with you that the entire admissions process of all our schools have been proceeding very smoothly. The successful conduct of the LSAT-India admissions test for admission to the Jindal Global Law School demonstrates the inherent sense of resilience in the higher education system. Most of the registered students successfully completing the test in an online and remote-proctored exam format proves our decision to go online as the best and indeed the only safe option that is available. We were conscious of the inherent safety, security and well-being of the students and their concerns relating to health became paramount in our decision to go ahead with the AI-Enabled, Remote-Proctored LSAT entrance exam. We are starting our classes on 1st September and a successful conduct of LSAT exam will prove instrumental in bringing the best talent around the country and the world to our classrooms."

A total of 6651 students paid the LSAT-India test fee and registered themselves for the exam. Out of this, 5706 candidates registered for the 5-year BA/BBA-LLB programme, 686 students for 3-year LLB and another 259 candidates for 1-year LLM programme. These students have appeared in the online test on six days during 19-26 July.

Student Experiences:

Srishti Varma of JSS Private School Dubai, UAE who took the test on 24th July at her home in UAE said - "LSAT-India 2020 held online this year was a very well conducted exam and personally I didn't face any issues related to IT or connectivity. The test was not very difficult and at the same time not very easy, the time allotted for each section is 35 minutes and I was able to finish the sections 2-3 minutes before time. I wouldn't say it was lengthy."

Raghav Kapur, a class 12 pass-out of The Doon School, Dehradun shared his feedback - "In the face of an unprecedented pandemic, we, the students of the batch of 2020 have a bigger burden on our heads, college admissions. With the future being as uncertain as it is, all of us are scrambling to secure seats at our desired and colleges. It is truly reassuring to see universities like the OP Jindal Global University stepping up with Pearson VUE testing solutions to provide us with the opportunity to gain those coveted seats. LSAT-India this year was delivered via an online proctored exam and I say with great pleasure that the exam experience was flawless. From the timely support when the browser wouldn't open up to the uninterrupted testing period, it felt as though I was giving the exam in a center with no distractions or complications. The questions were well balanced, with a mix of easy and challenging ones and the ability to highlight, strikethrough and easily navigate between questions allowed for seamless test taking. Overall, I feel that the LSAT-India exam was held in a fair, honest and precise manner at a time when travelling to a center and giving a human proctored test would be almost impossible for many of us."
