The November 2020 LSAT is officially an LSAT-Flex!

With the October LSAT in the rearview, the November LSAT test date is your last chance to take the LSAT in 2020.

However, COVID-19 has changed test-takers plans quite a bit; in this post, we’ll take a look at key information you need about the November LSAT—now the November LSAT-Flex!

The November LSAT-Flex

The November 2020 test date was not initially intended to be an LSAT-Flex exam, but do to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the exam LSAT will continue to be delivered remotely as the LSAT-Flex.

November LSAT Dates

The LSAT Flex will be available the week of November 7, 2020. More specifically, LSAC plans on offering the exam:

  • Saturday, November 7, 2020
  • Sunday, November 8, 2020
  • Tuesday, November 10, 2020
  • Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Practice with official LSAT questions. Start your online LSAT prep with Magoosh today.

November LSAT-Flex Score Release Dates

This November’s LSAT scores will be released via your LSAC account on Tuesday, November 24, 2020.

In order to receive your scores, you must have completed the LSAT Writing sample. To accommodate this, LSAT will open the Writing section eight days prior to the test–so you can take the writing section at your convenience, just remember that you need to finish it before you’ll get your scores.

You can also sign up for a “score preview” of your November test results. The name of this option is a little bit misleading–you won’t get your scores any earlier than other test takers. Instead, the “score preview” gives you six days after LSAT scores are released to choose whether you want to keep your scores or cancel them. If you do not choose within six days, your scores are retained and get sent to schools. This service costs $45 if you sign up before your test and $75 after testing has finished (if you have a fee waiver, don’t worry–you’ll get this option automatically)!

Registration (and Auto-Registration)

If you have not already registered for the November LSAT, the deadline is Wednesday, September 23, 2020.

If you were already registered for the November LSAT before it was changed to the LSAT-Flex, you’ll will have been automatically registered to take the LSAT-Flex during the week of November 7–unless you choose to opt out, in which case you will receive a coupon to use for any future LSAT until April 2021.

November LSAT-Flex Cost

The fees for the November LSAT-Flex are the same as for an in-person LSAT. Plan on spending around $200 for test registration, if you haven’t already registered for the November exam.

Upcoming LSAT Dates

If you don’t want to (or can’t) take the November LSAT-Flex, you’ll have to wait until January 2021 to take the LSAT.

However, there is a strong likelihood this will also become an LSAT-Flex. The LSAC is announcing these changes around 6-8 weeks before the test day, so stay tuned for more updates!

Find a quiet place, like a library, to take the practice test and do the whole thing in one sitting.

Be sure to time yourself strictly—it’s critical to accurately assess your starting point.

Score your practice test.

Use the answer key in your book, determine your overall score and your strengths and weaknesses. And if you haven’t already, start looking at law schools and determine the score you’ll need to be competitive.

Design your study schedule.

The final step is to estimate how long it will take you to get from your current score to your goal score. For most people, that’s somewhere in the range of 2-6 months.That means taking the November 2020 LSAT is going to put you on a tight schedule.

If you need to increase your score by less than 10 points, you’re in great shape. However, if you’re trying to improve by more than 10 points in two months, you have a real challenge ahead of you. Consider postponing to the January LSAT and giving yourself a few more months to prepare.
