Writing the LSAT on the 6th – Will accommodated test takers get the same test?

Hi guys,

I'm writing the LSAT on the 6th instead of tomorrow because of my accommodations. I was wondering if we get the same test or a different one?

Thanks!

    There's another thread about this somewhere, but I believe the consensus was that it will likely be a different test.

    I did some research after I responded to the thread that asked this the other day and I'm *now* nearly 100% certain it is a different test.

    ETA: spelling

    Interesting. I know that nobody is supposed to discuss the test, but that would seem really unfair if they administered the same test afterwards.

    Damn Phone, lol. I actually wrote that wrong. I meant I am NOW nearly 100% certain it is a different test.

    Haha! Okay, I was perfectly willing to trust your research, lol, but that just seemed so wrong!

    Why do you think phones, mechanical pencils, digital watches, etc. are not allowed? Because LSAC is afraid of miniature cameras for recording test questions or answers. I would be astounded if they administered the same test days later.

    Exactly! They take SO many precautions, it would just be too reckless to provide this window for cheating.

    @"Cant Get Right" @"Alex Divine" Alex, are you conclusive sure it's a different test? Accomadated takers on TLS thread said it was the same test.

    @Matthew524 said "will have the same exact test as everyone else even if it is on a different day than the other test takers ( I had to take my LSAT a week later than everyone and still had the same exam)."

    I've also seen on Powerscore that LSAC has administered the same test a couple days later.

    No way to know conclusively because people have reported getting the same test. It seems inconclusive at best. However, I know for a fact that in the several people I've personally spoken to on TLS & 7Sage have gotten completely different tests when they've taken it on different days.

    If you have the same exact test, what stops people from just telling you what to expect? The LSAC knows that people talk after the test regardless of their rules and regulations. For that reason I would bet my money on having a different test. Again, there's no way to know for certain though.

    Que sera, sera

    Try looking at a post-test forum on Powerscore, as they have subforums for accommodated and non-accommodated students. Also, not that you would do this, but don't talk about this at the test center. They have some rule against it.
