Raw score: the number of questions answered correctly. No deduction for incorrect answers. All individual questions have the same weight. Raw scores are converted to an LSAT scale that ranges from 120 to 180 (equating; i.e., a method that adjusts for minor differences in difficulty between test forms).

Reports: Score, average score (if taken more than once), band (estimate of proficiency level), percentile rank (the percentage of candidates scoring below the reported test score). Number of errors and score Examples
