Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the US-based Law School Admission Council (LSAC) has decided to administer the 2020 LSAT-India entrance examination online for the first time ever.Candidates seeking admission to law schools in the country will be able to take the LSAT-India from June 14, 2020 using an online test delivery system.
LSAC said LSAT-India, which was a paper-pencil test since its inception in 2009, becomes India’s first and only Law Entrance Exam to be entirely online, AI-enabled remote-proctored.
The move to online exam will enable candidates to take the test from the convenience of their home or other respective settings without worrying about their health and safety, it said in a statement.
Pearson VUE, one of the leading players in computer-based testing in the world, administers this test as an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled, online solution for aspirants to take their required college admissions tests in a safe manner, thereby overcoming the restrictions posed by the Covid-19 lockdown.
It is the first time in more than 25 years of existence of Pearson’s Virtual University Enterprises (VUE) that an AI-enabled remote-proctored online solution has been made available in this format.
Welcoming the move, Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU), C. Raj Kumar, said that â€œLSAT-India (Law School Admission Test–India) has given hope and aspiration by launching this exam in an online formatâ€.
