According to a report in Hindustan Times, the decision has been taken to provide candidates who have registered for the CBSE Class 12 exams in May, with adequate preparation time. As per the report, the deadline to apply for the test has been extended to 4 June as well.

A report in NDTV cited the council authorities having said that aspirants who choose the option can take the test in March if they want to take the LSAT before the boards. The aspirant can also re-test in June and have their best score reported for their preferred college for admissions.

The report added that students who register prior to 12 February will be eligible for the special early-bird price of Rs 3,499 per test for the March or June test. For those who register after 12 February, they will have to pay the standard fee of Rs 3,799 for one session.
