A report by NDTV quoted LSAC Vice President Yusuf Abdul-Kareem saying, "By moving the testing period to the week of 19 July, we are accommodating the needs of students who need to sit for their CBSE board exams, and we can also help students be better prepared for the new LSAT—India online format.”

Kareem said that the LSAT-India will be conducted in three time slots over four days starting from 19 July.

The LSAT-India was earlier scheduled to begin from 14 June. It is a pen-paper based test but in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be conducted online this year.

The LSAT is conducted for admission to LLB and LLM programmes at Indian law colleges.

During the exam, the candidates will be monitored through AI-enabled remote-proctors. There are 50 law schools in the country which give admission to students on the basis of their LSAT score.

The paper comprises 24 questions of reading comprehension, 23 of analytical reasoning, 22 of logical reasoning (1), and 23 questions of logical reasoning (2). There is also a variable section which has 23 questions. Candidates get 35 minutes to attempt each section.;
