June LSAT 2024 Predictions

The June 2024 LSAT is shaping up to be one for the books. Not only did registrations for the June exam increase nearly 67% from last year, but it’s also the final LSAT ever with a Logic Games Section. Let’s send that section off in style with predictions about what to expect on the exam! 

What Will Be on the June LSAT?

LSAT Changes

First, let’s quickly review some unique changes the June LSAT brings. By now, this should be a refresher for most June test takers, but apologies in advance if we’re springing anything new at you.

  • Logic Games are going away. The 2024 June LSAT will be the final LSAT with a Logic Games Section. From August 2024 and beyond, the LSAT will have two Logical Reasoning Sections, one Reading Comprehension Section, an unscored Experimental Section, and an unscored LSAT Writing Section.
  • LSAT Writing is changing. June 2024 examinees will be the last test takers to complete the current version of the LSAT Writing Section. A new writing section, called LSAT Argumentative Writing, will make its debut on July 31, 2024.

Logic Games

It’s time for the Analytical Reasoning Section’s swan song. So what can you expect for the grand finale? Well, chances are LSAC won’t throw anything too crazy in there for June. They likely want the scores and performance of students on this test to match up with how students will do on future tests without logic games. 

I wouldn’t expect gnarly neither games or any insanely brutal games. I’d expect at least one ordering game, one grouping game, and a game combining both grouping and ordering.  They also have been favoring tiered ordering games in recent years. 

That said, you should always go into this section expecting at least one game to throw a bit of a twist on the general formula at you. Try to bring it back to the rules you are more familiar with.

Did they state players have to alternate? That’s a division in disguise. If an order repeats, how does that repetition impact who can go at the beginning or end of the order?

Generally, the first two games tend to be easier than the second two. In particular, that first game should be relatively straightforward with the hardest game likely coming either third or fourth in the section. Adjust your plan of attack accordingly.

I wouldn’t expect an experimental logic games section on test day, as experimental sections are used to test questions out questions that are used on future exams.

Logical Reasoning

For the June test, expect business as usual from this section.  

I’d try to split the LR section into three chunks to represent the general difficulty of each section. The first ten questions range from lowest to medium difficulty with a question or two potentially being a bit harder as a curveball. Questions 11-16 tend to be medium or high difficulty. Questions 17 through the end are mostly high to highest difficulty.

If you see a question that seems tough in this first stretch, don’t be afraid to skip it and come back! Often times the initial panic of encountering tough questions clouds our thoughts and prevents us from focusing on the task at hand. In these situations, it’s easy to get stuck and lose time. So, it’s generally better to come back to this question later once that first reaction wears off. 

If you are trying to get to all the questions in this section, you want to finish those earlier questions quickly to give yourself enough time to finish the tough ones. If you aren’t planning on tackling the whole section and want to pick a few questions to skip, the toughest ones are generally in the last 5-7 questions. These could be good candidates to guess on and focus your efforts on getting easier questions right.

Reading Comprehension

On test day, you’ll get one scored Reading Comprehension Section, which will consist of four passages. Exactly one of those three passages will be comparative, meaning there will actually be two smaller passages in one. The other three passages will be longer single passages. 

Substantively, you can expect one passage on arts or history, one science passage, one legal, and one social science passage. If you know that you thrive on certain subjects, it could be a good idea to prioritize those passages before subjects that are a bit trickier for you.

It can be tough to stay invested in passages you find less interesting. So, it can be a good idea to think of reading those passages as a scavenger hunt or a puzzle.  You don’t need to know or learn the details of the passage in the abstract. 

Instead, you need to understand the relevance of the details to the overall subject of the passage.  With this in mind, see if you can find clues that can help you solve this puzzle.  The first paragraph is generally where the passage provides clues as to the subject or point of the passage.  This can unlock the relevance of everything that comes after that first paragraph. Most questions are testing this puzzle. If you find details dry, double down on structure and purpose as a way to solve the puzzle of the passage.

Final Thoughts

One thing that can prevent you from achieving your potential on test day is perfectionism.  Many lawyers and prospective law students tend to aim for perfection because they want to push themselves and be the best they can be. Honestly, it is a laudable goal and pursuit.  However, this could actually hurt you on test day.

I know this from personal experience taking the test. If you stubbornly try to finish every question and end up getting stuck on a tough question, you could drain a ton of time on one question, passage, or game when each question is still only worth one point.  If you spend 6 minutes on one tough question, you may get that point, but at the expense of giving yourself a decent shot at five to six low-difficulty questions or two to three other tough questions. This is even worse on logic games and reading comp, where using that much time on one question could cost you the ability to tackle a game or passage altogether. 

Being ok with an imperfect understanding of arguments or passages, educated guesses, and playing the odds on those really tough questions is a key part of succeeding on test day.  Just remind yourself that each question is only one point. Any time investment could give you more than one point on other questions!  

Stay proactive in anticipating what you want to see in answers and trust that anticipation. It’s easy to fall back on intuition and drop anticipations for fear of spending too much time on a question. However, anticipation is the thing that allows you to quickly and accurately go through answers to find a match. Stay positive and forward-looking. You’ve got this!
