What are some tips to crack the LSAT 2022 exam?
LSAT India focuses on the comprehension abilities of the candidates. Since there is no Current Affairs or Quantitative Techniques section, candidates just have to practise and polish their deductive skills. The passages asked will be complex, and hence, the ability to read and comprehend accurately, while also drawing conclusions and inferences from it is very important. Strengthen your analytical and problem-solving skills, as this section can be very scoring. Try to complete all questions in 30 minutes, and leave the remaining 5 minutes for revision.
All the best!
