Understanding the Scoring Scheme

LSAT follows the procedure of calculating the raw scores and then scaling them. The total number of correct answers that you give, result in your raw score. LSAC uses the raw score that you receive and converts it into a scaled score, using a statistical method called equating. Your raw score is therefore converted on a scale ranging from 120 to 180 to give your final scaled LSAT score. You also receive your scores in percentages which are called the percentile scores.
