Can you put your watch on the desk like a clock, or does it need to be on your wrist?

I'd rather be able to just glance over at it. Wondering if anyone knows the answer.

    We actually were told to put our watches on our desk in June. Granted, none of us did it but you can.

    Good question. Maybe it differs between test center.

    You're aloud to put it on the desk! Then again, everything is at the proctors' discretion.

    What? Crazy... I don't think it's reasonable to enforce this. I prefer mine on my wrist.

    Do you guys find there is enough room on the desk to have the watch laid out on it? That was my only concern. If the desks are small, then the added room taken up to fit the watch might be an extra nuisance?

    My desk at my test center was really roomy. You could have a lot in the desk and still have room. I think this is also dependent on the test center.

    There are huge variations in desk space around the world where the LSAT is administered. I don't think anyone can answer this unless they've been to your specific testing location.

    I agree with @RafaelBernard. Exactly what I was going to say.

    it truly depends on your testing center. both times I've taken, there was more than enough space to put my watch on the table along with pencils ands tuff. but like I said, it really depends on your testing center and what kinds of desks they use

    my desk was extremely tiny. i couldn't fit my test booklet and answer sheet on it so i had to tuck my answer sheet behind and pull it out to bubble in. so we were allowed to put our watch on the desk, but there wasn't space for it.

    Yep! The classroom had been dead silent up to that point and when the lady came in and told us, she left in a hurry. Out of no where someone was like, "What the fuck?! No!" Pretty much broke the ice and we never heard a thing again about it from the actual proctors.

    At UT Austin they enforced a strict on the desk policy, no wrist. Plenty of room though.
