LSAT PrepTest Raw Score Conversion Charts

LSAT Blog Raw Score
In this blog post, I include the LSAT PrepTest raw score conversion charts for every released LSAT PrepTest. The below pictures show the minimum number of credited responses (correctly-answered questions) that will allow you to get a particular score.

At the end of this blog post, I include links to some analysis of the below data.

First, some notes on the LSAT PrepTest raw score conversion charts:

"__*" means no test-taker received that score on that exam.

Here's a big list of released LSAT PrepTests.

"SP" stands for SuperPrepOfficial (Feb 97) is the Official LSAT PrepTest with Explanations, and Free (June 07) is a free PDF on LSAC's website.

You probably won't score anywhere close to 140 once you start doing full-length PrepTests towards the end of your prep (that's when people tend to start thinking about raw score conversions). If you're scoring below 140, or if you're just plain interested, here are the raw score conversion charts for LSAT scores below 140:

  1. Steve, it seems like right around PT37 that the average number one could miss to get a 170 dropped from consistently 13-15 (more towards 11-13 in the mid 30's) to about 9-10

    Do you have any explanation for this phenomenon? Have the tests become, comparatively, easier? Has the rise of LSAT study guides and prep tests made the average test-taker better, thus making it "harder" to get a 170?

  2. Excellent question, John. It's more likely that the phenomenon is due to better-prepared test-takers.

    I don't believe LSAC would have any reason to change the difficulty of the exam. Remember, it has an interest in maintaining the comparability of present-day scores with those from past administrations.

  3. How do you score your test if you include different sections from different tests?
    The reason why I was asking is because I used a section from prep test 47 and then completed the rest of prep test 38

  4. I've been using similar raw score conversion charts but it seems that the scores on the charts above are a lot higher than of the others I've come across. Can you clarify what you mean by "PrepTest" scores?

  5. Hey Steve, I am a continuous follower of your blog. I took the december 2011 test, and I see that you have a -13 curve up for the test 65 up already. Did lsac publish this before releasing the scores to test takers?
