Law school aspirants from the state, who took the national law entrance examination, Law School Admission Test (LSAT) that was conducted in the city on May 5 is now a worried lot. LSAT, the scores of which are used by around 45 private and state university affiliated law schools, started one-hour late on May 5 but students were given an extension of only 30 minutes. The examination was held at Sri International School, Narayanguda, where about 150 candidates appeared for the LSAT. On Sunday 6th May, 2012, the miffed students lodged a complaint with Pearson Vue, Gurgaon, and the test conducting authority in the country.
Students, who wrote the examination, said that though all of them had reached the centre on time at 2.00 pm, the officials admitted them inside only at 2.20 pm. While the test specifies that digital watches cannot be used inside the examination centres, students were not allowed to use even their analogue watches. Though the exam was conducted at 16 various locations in the country, only students from Hyderabad complained about bad management. Students said that the invigilators had not followed the test criteria, specified by the authority. We were not given a 10-minute break after 70 minutes of the examination as specified in the test guidelines. Though the examination started one hour late, only 30 minutes extra time was given to us. Our performance suffered due to lack of time, said a student. LSAT is conducted in the country with assistance from US-based organisation Law School Admission Council (LSAC). Though not as popular as the Common Law Admission Test, marks of which are used by law universities such as Nalsar Law University, Hyderabad, and National Law School, Bangalore, LSAT is attended by over 14,000 students every year.
