The test will have three scored sections — one section each of Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension — and a fourth, unscored variable section that will allow LSAC to validate new test questions for future use. LSAT Writing is administered separately online and can be taken as early as eight (8) days before your multiple-choice test date. Remote administration of LSAT Writing will continue for all test takers.
