Additional info & updates

I took the LSAT last Sept and got a 148 after taking it a few years ago with a score of 144. I scored consistently about 155, a few times 159 160. I don't understand how someone can score 10, 12 points below a consistent score in practice provided that they are timing themselves and using recent tests. I see this is not an uncommon phenomenon... Can ANYONE tell me why this happens? It can't be stress more than one time? Please let me know, if you can't get your actual test performance to match your dramatically different practice tests, why you think this happened and how you overcame it if you did. I know with my grades I have to try to improve my LSAT as much as possible. It seems absurd that I can't change it.

Thanks very much.

I unfortunately can't help you with that but it's probably because you 'subconsciously' put more pressure on yourself to get that same score when you go in. Not sure how you are during the test, but stay as relaxed as possible I know my mind wandered a few times and then I let myself get caught up on one of the questions, therefore screwing me up with what I considered my best section. With all the concentration, I thought I had, I probably wasn't. So, just try to be more aware of yourself/actions during the test and adjust accordingly. you're probably like, 'yeah whatever', LOL, but I can only tell you what I think happened to me. So, hope that helps.

If you're still checking this page, I have a strategy that has very little to do with the actual test but helped me a lot. Email me. Lindsay
