LSAT-Flex Score Conversion Table (How to Predict Your LSAT Flex Score!)

Hand typing into calculator representing LSAT Flex Score Conversion

If you’re planning on taking the LSAT-Flex at-home exam in 2020 or 2021, you’re probably wondering how you can predict your score knowing that the LSAT-Flex is different than the standard LSAT.

Since LSAC announced the at-home LSAT-Flex option in April 2020, the number one question we’ve been getting from students is “How can I predict my LSAT-Flex score?” And this question will keep being important: all LSATs through at least April 2021 will be LSAT-Flexes.

Below you’ll find a table that converts projected LSAT-Flex raw scores to standard LSAT raw scores to LSAT percentiles. These are based on the May 2020 administration of the LSAT-Flex and LSAC’s raw to scaled conversion chart. Note that these conversions may change slightly during future administrations.

How We Created This LSAT-Flex Score Converter

We’ve based this LSAT flex score converter table on the data available from the LSAC. Here are the key facts you should know about it:

  • The LSAT-Flex has three sections instead of five like the standard in-person LSAT. It’s missing the experimental section (which doesn’t affect your score) and one of the two Logical Reasoning sections (which does impact how your raw score will translate to a scaled score).
  • The LSAC has stated that the three sections of the LSAC Flex will “have about the same number of questions”. On the standard LSAT, there’s a range of questions you could technically encounter on each section: 23-24 Logic Games questions, 24-26 Logical Reasoning questions (x2 sections), and 26-28 Reading Comprehension questions.
  • The LSAT-Flex exam uses previously administered questions from non-disclosed tests (meaning not from tests that have been released to the public as practice tests), and for the purposes of calculating estimated scores here, we’re making the assumption that sections will be kept intact and that LSAC won’t mix and match questions from sections from different exams (which would lead to different numbers of questions in a section from what usually appears). We could be wrong on this, but it feels likely that they would use complete sections for accuracy in score equating, but this is not confirmed!
  • Even though there is a range of possible numbers of questions, most of the time Logic Games sections have 23 questions, Logical Reasoning sections have 25 questions, and Reading Comprehension sections have 27 questions. However, on the June LSAT-Flex administrations, some students did receive 26-question Logical Reasoning sections and some received 25-question LR sections, so it could vary.
  • Based on what we’ve seen so far, we’ve based this score conversion chart presuming a 75- or 76-question LSAT-Flex Test. The actual range could potentially be anywhere between 73 to 78 questions, and this would skew the scoring a bit.
  • Here’s a tip if you take a practice test for the LSAT Flex that has 73 or 74 questions or 77 or 78 questions:
    • if you take a test that ends up with fewer overall questions (than the standard 75-76 we’ve mapped out below), count up your number of correct answers and match it to a scaled score that is one or two scores higher than the chart below.
    • If you take a test with more overall questions, count your number of correct answers and match it to a scaled score that is one or two scores lower than the chart below.

How to Take a Practice LSAT-Flex

  • Take a practice LSAT test, but skip one of the Logical Reasoning sections. Ideally, if you want to use the score conversion chart below precisely, you’ll take one that has a 23-question Logic Games section, a 25- or 26-question Logical Reasoning section, and a 27-question Reading Comprehension section (again, this is going to be most exams). It’s fine to use tests that have different numbers of questions, but take that into account when you use the chart below to convert your score if you do take a test that has fewer or more questions.

The LSAT Flex Score Predictor Conversion Table

Remember! This table assumes a 75- or 76-question LSAT-Flex (and technically, the actual range could be 73-78 questions). This is based on May scoring data, and the conversion for tests going forward may be adjusted slightly. This should be good enough for you to predict your LSAT-Flex score from practice though!

For more on LSAT-Flex and how to prepare, check out our post on taking the LSAT-Flex at home.

Remember this assumes a 75- or 76-question LSAT-Flex.

    How do we know how many questions we should be aiming for to get out goal score?

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert

      Hi Mark, it’s a little more difficult to predict what score you should get on the LSAT Flex because it is so new, but the raw score on the left side of this table gives you number of questions you need to answer correctly.

    • Michael August 31, 2020 at 12:34 PM #

      Hi Mark. It’s on the conversion chart. Compare what you typically make on the standard exam and flex exam, pick a target score from the flex, and the target raw from the flex is what you want to hit come exam time. Consider that there is a range in the question count, which varies from 73 to 78, presented to you in proctored exam.You can now utilize the range of raw scores you want to hit and identify what you should be aiming for to get your goal score.

    How is Lsat flex score scored?

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert July 24, 2020 at 1:05 PM #

      Hi John, the LSAT Flex is new and only LSAC knows how it will be scored. We clearly laid out our methodology here, but this is just an estimate based on our experience and expertise with the LSAT exam 🙂

  3. Sabrina C May 27, 2020 at 11:46 PM #

    How do you know that the questions will be ones that have been previously administered? I haven’t found that information anywhere online

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert July 24, 2020 at 1:04 PM #

      This was announced on LSAC’s official site when the LSAT Flex was first announced. I spoke with Kristin and we missed a key detail here–the questions will come from previous tests that have not been disclosed. That means you won’t find questions from PrepTests, for example. We updated the post to reflect that key detail 🙂

    Way off scale, 25 wrong on LSAT flex is in the 140s? you get 40 wrong on normal test , you get a 153…

      Hi Lenny, as we note, “These are our best guesses as experts, based on the information LSAC has released about LSAT-Flex, so take these predictions with a grain of salt and give yourself a question or two buffer on each side.” Only LSAC actually knows how their score algorithm works, but we clearly laid out our methodology here.

    Is it confirmed that the lsat flex is using previously administered questions? I haven’t seen that confirmed anywhere else

    I scored a 154 on the LSAT flex which according to LSAC was a 58th percentile. I also used Magoosh prep and recommend it, but these numbers seem way off.

      Thanks for the feedback, Drew! We’re getting a lot of comments on this blog post, and I’m going to make a note for our content experts to take a look at it and see if it needs to be updated or improved.

    I think this chart is off. A 45/75 would be roughly a 60. A 60 on most LSATs gets you anywhere from a 152-154. That’s also the score most other conversion charts give.
