Sonipat (Haryana): US-based non-profit organisation known for organising entrance tests for law schools worldwide and India, the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) took an unprecedented decision to advance its previously scheduled June Test (LSAT-India 2021) to May 29.
“When board exams and all other tests are simply getting postponed and cancelled in the country creating an uncertain environment in higher education, LSAC advancing the LSAT-India test to May 29 is a great relief for law aspirants and parents. Law aspirants will be free from their entrance exam burden and focus on their 12th board exams expected in the coming months,” Founding Vice Chancellor, O P Jindal Global University and Dean of Jindal Global Law School, Professor (Dr) C Raj Kumar was quoted as saying via a statement by news agency IANS.
The LSAC informed the students that since CBSE, ICSE and all major class XII board exams have been postponed, the “2021 LSAT-India will be delivered over multiple days and slots starting 29 May 2021”.
“The exam had originally been scheduled to begin the week of 14 June 2021. Due to uncertainty of the date for the Board exam, which will not be announced until at least June 1, LSAC Global felt it was unfair for the current class of law school aspirants to have to put their exam preparations on hold,” the LSAC statement said.
“Advancing the test ends the perennial problem of one entrance exam conflicting with another putting students and parents under a lot of stress. There is no such conflict expected now and students can take their entrance exam peacefully,” noted C Raj Kumar.
