LSAT-India 2021 scorecard - Shivang Soni, 99.82%
Programme: 5 Year Integrated Law Programme
Give us a brief introduction: your name, address, college, etc.
My name is Shivang Soni and I am currently a class 12 student in Modern School, Barakhamba Road.
What are your college and course preferences after scoring such a high percentile?
I’m interested in pursuing a BA LLB. My dream law school is NLSIU, Bangalore. At present, the Jindal Global Law School is an attractive option.
Have you decided on the legal specialization you want to pursue in future? If yes, then tell us why you want to pursue a particular specialization.
I feel it’s too early to pick a specialization but I’m very attracted to the intersection of Law, Artificial Intelligence and Morality.
Tell us about your journey for LSAT-India. Why did you choose LSAT-India?
LSAT India is an exam that does not merely test rote-learning. Instead, it is a comprehensive test of various analytical and logical abilities. It stands out when compared to other Indian law entrance tests.
Tell us about your preparation strategy for LSAT-India? How did you manage your preparation during the COVID-19 period?
In the face of lack of clarity regarding major examinations and, as well as the general uncertainty due to COVID-19 it was extremely easy to lose focus and motivation. The key was to prepare regularly rather than rigorously to sustain me through the frequent postponements in the face of the unprecedented situation.
Tell us about your approach to the reading comprehension section. What would be your word of advice for candidates who want to prepare for the reading comprehension section?
I’d highly recommend candidates expose themselves to challenging reading material. There is no shortcut to improving your ability to comprehend overnight. It takes a consistent effort over a significant period of time.
Tell us about the analytical reasoning section, what kind of questions are asked and how should one prepare?
Analytical Reasoning (AR) questions are designed to assess your ability to consider a group of facts and rules, and, given those facts and rules, determine what could or must be true. The best way to prepare for this section is to practise previous year questions.
Did you solve the mock tests or sample papers? If yes, then tell us how many mocks did start solving the mock tests?
Yes, I solved a couple of LSAT India mock tests including the official ones provided by LSAC. Mock tests play a crucial role in the LSAT preparation.
The LSAT India was held in remote proctored mode. How did you prepare yourself for RPT mode?
The RPT mode did not affect my preparation to a large extent. I shifted from pen-paper mock tests to online ones. This helped me adapt my strategy to the changes and develop a familiarity with the interface that would be used on the final day.
How was your experience with the home proctored test, did you face any difficulties?
My experience was good and I did not face any technical difficulties.
There is a perception that the LSAT is an easy exam. What is your take on that?
I feel it is important to distinguish difficulty based on competition and difficulty based on course. The LSAT is definitely not as competitive as mainstream entrance tests but the concepts and questions are palpably hard.
Many students find it difficult to access the LSAT related study material, so what books did you refer to for LSAT preparation? Tell us about your subject wise booklist.
The best source for LSAT preparation is khanacademy.org. Alternatively, candidates can also study from the material available on the LSAT India official website (discoverlaw.in)
Have you applied for CLAT or any other law entrance exams? If yes, then how did you manage your LSAT preparation along with the other law entrance exams.
While LSAT and CLAT have many differences, the reasoning and logic skills are tested in both. Thus CLAT preparation automatically enhanced my LSAT preparation. I was a part of the Do-Zen, a batch of twelve students mentored by Rajneesh sir. I would like to thank sir for his constant guidance in my preparation.
