The LSAT—IndiaTM aims to evaluate candidates on their reasoning and reading skills, it is not based on rote learning and does not intend to check whether you remember facts or figures. It is a democratic and inclusive test which tests aspirants on a level playing field. The test operated on the assumption that students acquire critical thinking skills over the course of their educational journey, and these are the skills essential to a career in law, and that good critical thinking skills can be gained in virtually any educational stream anywhere provided it is rigorous and of good quality. Thus, no formal training in any specific field or set of fields is required to do well on the LSAT—IndiaTM. The test tends to reward candidates with generalised abilities adaptable to a myriad of circumstances.
