Calculate Your LSAT-Flex Score!

News dropped today that clarified how the at-home LSAT-Flex exam will be scored. Long story short — the Logical Reasoning section factors a little bit less into your overall score on the LSAT-Flex than it normally does, and the Logic Games and Reasoning Comp sections factor a little bit more.

Plus, there’s the whole business about the LSAT-Flex having just three scored sections — one fewer than the traditional four on a normal LSAT. All of this raises a crucial question: how the heck do you take practice exams to prepare for this LSAT-Flex?

Well, one way is to continue to take and review the normal four-section practice tests. Yeah, the score you get on those four-section exams might be a point or two above or below the score you’d get on the LSAT-Flex (where, again, Logical Reasoning is weighed a little differently), but doing this will still give you a good sense of which parts of the exam you’re improving on, and which parts of the exam you need to review.

But if you instead wanted to be a little bit more precise, we got you. Pull one of two Logical Reasoning sections from any practice test, and complete that one Logical Reasoning section, along with the Reading Comp and Logic Games sections. Then, input your scores below. You’ll get a “raw score.” Look at the score conversion chart for that particular exam (here’s a sample score conversion chart for the June 2007 LSAT), and see what scaled score your “raw score” earned you.

Here are a few score conversion charts from recent exams …

Without knowing more about how the LSAT-Flex’s scores are calculated, we can’t promise this is exactly how LSAC will calculate your real LSAT-Flex score. But we do believe this calculator will give you a good estimate of what score you’d earn on the LSAT-Flex, and can help ease some nerves before the May 18th/19th LSAT-Flex date.

And if you want to be even more prepared, we’ve added Flex-specific tips into all our Live Online courses to get you as prepared as you can for the LSAT-Flex or whatever direction LSAC wants to take us in!
