    Just took it this morning. Order was LR-RC-LG for me. Generally LR seemed average, RC was slightly more difficult (which is usually my best section), and LG was okay, but some of games were tricky/time consuming. I recall contemporary literary theory and volcanic ash plumes as two of the subjects covered in RC. For games, I vaguely remember something about inspections and another one about tv and print media.

    Oh I had the same one! Yeah, the LG was a little tricky. I struggled with time towards the end

    Hey everyone, I took the test yesterday at 10:50, and the format was LR26 (electric bacteria) - LG (tv or print) - RC (volcanic ash plumes, Algonquin tribe, Literary theory and science, Women’s marriage law reform in England). I did very well in LR and thought it was pretty easy as it had short prompts. LG was same as usual but you had to be on your toes. RC killed my perfect test tho, as I thought the algonquin passage was brutal and the comparative passage was hard too. If you had this format or any of the sections mentioned, What did you all think about it?

    I feel the exact same way and also took the test at the same time as you did. LR was fair with a few trickier questions but nothing crazy. LG seemed average since I finished with time to spare, but I invested a shitload of time to prep for LG.

    The middle two passages were super killer. Had to take a few moments to re-collect myself since I initially didn't feel like I was understanding one of them at all.

    I'm no expert but since the other two sections were likely average while the last one was harder, I would imagine a pretty standard curve for us. Though I have also read that lots of people thought that the LG we got was quite hard? So I'm not sure. Everyone I saw talking about it agreed that the RC was tough though.

    Had the Volcanic Ash RC section, LR with Bacterium and LG with Inspections. LR was tough for me, usually my worst section. Got on the backfoot timing wise and it led me to rush a little. Just felt like there were a lot of traps on the back end. LG was very fair, first three games I could easily run sub boards and the Sub/Eq was in the first game which was great. Usually -0/-1 there, needed a good section to make up for LR. Last question on the last game tripped me up though, think I took an L there (double meaning). RC was definitely tough but also didn't think it was impossible. Can see them sneaking in a tough question on the volcanic ash passage and found the MP on the Parliament Act tough but I actually thought the comparative was alright. Better than a lot of the legal theory comparative RCs in the 80s. Hoping its a -9 curve but think it may be -8. Just like every LSAT I've taken, there's always something that slips by you. Don't expect this to be different.

    Hey can someone please explain this supposed curve to me? Maybe I haven't done my research, but do you mean to tell me that they'll give us extra points on some of the tougher questions?

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if any one could please clarify this phrase on the LSAT Flex FAQ page. It says:

    • Q: What electronic devices are prohibited?
    • A: "One cell phone is allowed for use as a mirror during check-in as instructed by your proctor, but it must be turned off and put away as instructed by the proctor before the test begins. Additional cell phones are prohibited."

    • https://www.lsac.org/update-coronavirus-and-lsat/lsat-flex

    I was wondering what exactly "use as a mirror during check-in" mean? Does this mean that it's mandatory for me to bring my cell phone to my desk? (I was planning to turn it off & put it away long before the test starts for peace of mind, but now I'm not sure whether I need to have it with me and also have it turned on at the beginning of the test? Seems rather odd.)

    Also, what is a "check-in"???

    I'd be much grateful if anyone could please provide any clarification on this. Thank you in advance!

    I was also confused at first but I took my test a couple days ago so I'll explain, the mirror is so the proctor knows there are no sticky notes on your computer screen (since the camera wouldn't pick that up). I brought a big hand mirror (extra, I know) because I felt the same as you and didn't even want my phone to be in the room. Check in is just your proctor downloading things on your computer and then you have to tour them around the room you're taking the test in with your webcam. This 'tour' only took like 1 minute for me. The total amount of time that check in took for me was 35 minutes, most of that time was me waiting for the proctor to download and check things on my computer (make sure all tabs are closed).

    Does flex allow accommodations?

    In case your question hasn't been answered. Yes they do, I emailed them. Depending on your accommodations you will get your extended time, additional paper, etc. They did tell me that they don't have any way to let people do a few things (paper test, etc). But if you have been granted accomodations, they will be honored.

    Hey! Just took the LSAT Flex today... it was my second time taking the test and I am honestly worried. I didn't get to the 4th game or the 4th passage, but I think I did decent on everything else. I guessed on 15-20 questions throughout the entire test. My PT was around 155-165. I'm just wondering if it's frowned upon to take the LSAT a 3rd time?

    I will be taking it for the 3rd time this August. I was admitted to law school last fall, but I am trying to get into a different school that requires a higher LSAT score, and since I am not in the top 10 of my class they won't let me transfer w/o retaking the LSAT. That said, the Deans of Admissions at both schools have told me that they don't judge you on how many times you take it as long as you are making improvements. Since the tests vary in difficulty so much and circumstances can happen to throw you off in a test, they understand if you get a lower score and then re-take. If you feel very insecure about it you could always include an addendum to your application stating why you took it over, it's my understanding that the admissions committees appreciate addendum explanations (as long as they aren't too long).

    I had the same-- also thought LG was pretty standard. LR for me felt really hard, but RC for me wasnt as bad-- the comparative passage was definitely the worst imo.

    Just finished, overall, proctor experience was great, no problems at all.
    Test: LG/RC/LR
    LG: Farmer (fields)
    LR: Chimps, Lawyer client/Cooks
    RC: Jazz Bebop, Science anecdotes
    Overall, a very very fair test, no section was difficult. Kinda missed a rule in the last Logic game and barley reocvered

  • grecia.v.rivasgrecia.v.rivas Alum Member

    Just took the test - 23 LG, 27, RC, 25 LR was my order. LG was relatively easy, the third game was the one I had most difficulty with (cabinets), the last game (music groups) I thought was suspiciously easy. RC was okay. I can't remember all the passages but there was one about jazz and a comparative about paranormal activity. I had the hardest time with the jazz passage and it had a lot of questions so it definitely ate up a lot of my time. LR was okay, I had the section with chimpanzees. I definitely skipped like 4-5 and had three minutes to finish the last five questions so I guessed on two. Overall, I thought it was an okay test (better than I expected), my experience with Proctor-U was great, I didn't have any interruptions at all and the test ran smoothly. My nerves before the test got to me so I had to quickly break out of them by the time I was done with the first game.

  • kilgoretroutkilgoretrout Alum Member

    Just finished the test. I had: LG, RC, LR. LG was very easy, pretty straightforward sequencing games plus one difficult one (the cabinets). I had a lot of test anxiety and unfortunately panicked and my brain just stopped working though. So I'm kicking myself because I know the games were easy. RC had the section on jazz, made no sense. LR also talked about chimps, cooks, aide between municipalities. I did not find LR to be unreasonably difficult. I did not have enough time for both LG and RC.

    I had technical issues 5 minutes before the end of LG. My proctor lost connection to my video (it was still recording me though -- and I live in the city with great wifi). I had to wait for about half an hour before I could resume the test. She transferred me to technical help and I had to reboot my computer. During this time I desperately wanted to finish my game board for the last game and make all possible inferences but I knew I was being filmed and didn't want to be accused of cheating. I started at 1:10PM EST and finished at 4PMEST.

    Felt the comparative was tricky in its questions and answer choices. Took me longer than any of my other PTs to do the LR on this one. Wish I had paced quicker, ended up skipping a question and losing time when I returned to it. Hopefully that -1 doesn't make or break it.

    Just took the test,

    LG - cabinets and farms or something
    LR - chimpanzees

    overall, not bad. Fair test. I dont think the curve will be too generous for mine because it wasnt super hard. LR had a few tricky ones but still fair

    Did anyone get answers on whether it's allowable to step away from the camera to use the restroom knowing that the clock's running, like during the one-minute break? If someone notifies the proctor is it considered OK? Here's hoping this gets added to the website soon.

    Dont think so. Pretty sure you cant move once the exam starts, period. But, I was able to go right before pressing "start exam" on the lsat screen after reading the instructions and having the proctor enter the passcode. But even during one minute break during the test, you cant go

    At the beginning, the proctor told me I could take a 2 break due to accommodations. I notified the proctor during that 1 minute via chat, I didn’t get a response and just ran to bathroom in my room.

    When I returned, the proctor told me he filed a report/violation because I left my seat. I tried not to let that rattle me and finish test. ProctorU told me it wouldn’t be an issue, so I’m hoping LSAC reviews the matter kindly.

    I’d suggest you not move until your proctor permits.

    They definitely don't allow you to leave once the test starts because they want to prevent test-takers from potentially cheating by looking at their phones, other laptops, having someone assist you, etc. That's why LSAC shortened the test to 3 sections---making it any longer would have required them to allow bathroom/snack breaks. They're pretty strict about staying within the view of the camera.

    LR (26) - RC - LG

    RC was drilling for waste disposal, tricksters, plagiarism (comp; it was suuuper hard and I basically guessed all 7 questions), and civil vs. criminal law
    LG: playing for concert? (jazz, orchestra, solo), morning afternoon and night shift was the last game

    Overall LR felt fair, and LG on the easier side

    Yep! Pretty sure that's what I had.

    Just took the Flex, the order was LR LG RC.

    LR: set with company price-fixing
    LG
    RC: Motown / species classification / stock market / software patent

    Overall I had a really good experience with my proctor. I took the test within 20 minutes of the scheduled test time and there were no techical difficulties. LR was overall okay but I always get confused on like three or four so.. RC was fine too but the stock market passage (comp) was a bit confusing.

    I took the test on July 11th. I was connected to a proctor right away and had no problems with that whatsoever, which I was nervous about. I also had the LR - RC - LG sequence. I personally found RC particularly more challenging than any RC section I've practiced with. The LR was also pretty difficult, but I usually don't have time to finish LR sections since I am a really slow reader. LG was pretty easy compared to the other sections. I've signed up for August because I feel like I scored in the 140s thats how much I guessed :( Does anyone else feel discouraged ? I want to cancel my score but at this point I think that would hurt more than help. I also don't know where to do my LSAT writing? Does anyone know how it works and how they proctor you? Thank you!

    @lilymdileo You can take the LSAT writing on the same page on LSAC where you check your scores. There are no live proctors during the writing part. They video record the entire session instead and there are instructions that ask you to show your surroundings to the camera much like the FLEX exam.

    Hi There,
    I wrote the LSAT for the first time during the July exam and I feel like I completely froze. I barely feel like I even read any of the LR questions (my first section) as I couldn't take in any of the information and then panic that I had taken too much time reading, guess and then move on. Needless to say it did not go well. Does anyone have any suggestions surrounding this? I felt calm the morning of the exam but as soon as I logged on I felt like I couldn't read/ process. I am scheduled to take the August exam as it will be flex, however, I am worried it will be the same situation and that it will be a huge waste of time and money.

    Thoughts?

    Might just be first time jitters. How many PTs have you done? Did you get a good night's sleep? Takes a lot of work staying calm in situations like that to be honest.

    Check your LSAC account under LSAT status

    I thought we were supposed to get an email too! I did see a score online under LSAT status on my LSAC account but it does say "projected score". Unsure if this is our actual score?

    I think when it says project score email date, it means it expects they will send out the email today, not that the score is only projected.

    Thanks! I figured they wouldn't just post a projected score but wanted to be sure! Especially since normally people are emailed in advance of their score release.

    Are we allowed to use full screen (f11) on chrome during the FLEX test?
