LSAT is a unique examination as it does not test your knowledge of the law nor does it require the use of a calculator. It actually tests the reasoning skills of a candidate. So you must be very calm and not stressed out when you are appearing for the all important LSAT examination.
There are certain tips which might help you to do well in LSAT. Always set yourself a goal score and the names of your preferred law schools should be at the tip of your tongue. Believe it or not, this alone creates a positive influence and you feel good even before you have sat for the actual exam. Visualize yourself taking the LSAT exam with unmatched calmness and confidence. You must overcome your fears at any cost if you want to do well in this exam.
You should not have any doubts in your mind regarding your success in LSAT. Just to drive home this point let me explain this with the help of an example –
Nancy: When I get my 16O LSAT, I will be applying…….
Thomas: If I get a 160, I will apply to……..
The above conversation might not seem to be odd in the first place but look very closely. Both Nancy and Thomas are aiming to get high scores in LSAT but the usage of the words ‘when’ and ‘if’ gives a completely different meaning in each case.
Nancy is actually claiming an ownership of the score of 160 but Thomas, on the other hand, hopes to get a 160. Both have similar ambitions but they are not equally confident. Chances are that Nancy will get a college of her choice but Thomas may not even get a desirable score. So it’s all in the mind. Think positive and you will have the desired results.
Don’t ever settle yourself for a low score. Always prepare well and be confident that you get the desired score. There is no harm in showing it to the world that you have it in you to beat the best and march ahead of the rest.
