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 , 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 June 2022 will be LSAT-Flexes.

In response, we’ve made three resources to help predict your estimated LSAT-Flex score. Click the buttons below to jump straight to the resources, then read on for more information about the methodology behind these scores!




 

The LSAT-Flex Score Calculator

  • An important note!

Based on historical LSAT data, each raw score could potentially produce a range of scaled scores–yes, even on the LSAT-Flex! To give you a single score, we took the mean of this range and its corresponding percentile (rounding up to the nearest whole number). To see the full range for both scaled scores and percentiles, go to the LSAT conversion table below!

How We Created This LSAT-Flex Score Converter

What’s that you say? LSAC has only released scoring information for one LSAT-Flex so far? True–but we’ve been able to use that chart, combined with historical LSAT scoring data, to predict your LSAT-Flex scores. Here’s how!

  • We started by examining the official score conversion tables for a sampling of ten official LSAT exams of varying difficulty (conversion tables that were based on the previous exam structure of four scored sections).
  • For each exam, we converted the exam to an LSAT Flex version by removing the second Logical Reasoning section. Each exam then ended up with 75 or 76 questions, which matches what we’ve seen on most recently given LSAT Flex tests.
  • For each of the ten sample exams, we then matched an original raw score (say, 85 questions correct on a 101 question test) with its proportional equivalent for a shorter exam (in this example, 63 questions correct on a 75-question test).
  • We then were able to match this new raw score to the equivalent scaled score provided in the original score conversion table from LSAC for each of the ten exams.
  • The range of scaled scores we provide in this chart and calculator indicate the range of potential scaled scores for each raw score that we recalculated. For example, a raw score of 74 questions correct out of 76 could get you a scaled score anywhere between 177 and 180 depending on the exact nature/respective difficulty of the particular exam.
  • To date, LSAC has only released one score conversion table from an LSAT Flex (the one for May 2020) and we used that score conversion table to make sure that our scaled scores were in the right ballpark.
  • We believe our scaled score ranges to be accurate within a point or two for most scaled scores, except those between 120-130, where data is murkier. As we get more data from LSAC on recent tests, we will make adjustments to this post and calculator to provide you with the most accurate scores!


 

Will This LSAT-Flex Calculator Be Valid Forever?

We’ll keep it updated so that it is—but no, its current calculations won’t stay static. As the LSAC releases more data, we will update it. And LSAC has announced that the LSAT-Flex will continue being offered through at least June 2022, so it’s likely at least minor scoring changes will take place during this period.

In fact, LSAC has already announced some pretty big changes happening in August 2021:

  • The three-section scored format (instead of the four-section scored format used in previous LSATs) is here to stay!
  • The unscored section, which was eliminated from LSAT-Flex tests in 2020 and early 2021, will come back.

However, neither of these changes will affect scoring!

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.
  • Exciting news! In Magoosh LSAT Prep, you can take ready-made LSAT-Flex versions of several official LSAT exams!

What to Do if Your LSAT has 73-74 or 77-78 Questions

We’ve based both the calculator and the table below on the assumption that the LSAT-Flex will have 75-76 questions. Here’s why:

  • 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, 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.

If the LSAT-Flex practice exam you took has fewer or more questions than this, here’s what to do:

  • 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.

The LSAT Flex Score Predictor Conversion Table

As described above, this table assumes a 75- or 76-question LSAT-Flex (and technically, the actual range could be 73-78 questions). 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.

    No disrespect, but I don’t think this scale is correct. Taking two sections of LR does have an impact on your raw score. Most people’s scores don’t vary drastically from one section to the next. Like, if you score 21/25 on one section of LR, you probably would score 21/25 or 22/26 on the second section as well (give or take a few questions). That is around 8 questions missed as opposed to 4. Keep in mind that a person could get tired on a 5-section test as opposed to a 3-section test. The fatigue could cause a lower score on the second LR section.

    Your scale essentially rewards those people with free points that they would otherwise not have. A 65/75 is not the same as getting 91/101 or 90/100. That is true both mathematically and based on the structure of the test. If LSAC did this, they would dilute the value of their own scores which would cause havoc in the admissions process for this year. You would essentially be giving a 165-168 scorer a 170 or higher—thereby reducing the value of an actual 170+ score on a 5-section test. They have to make the test fair for everyone regardless of when they decide to take it.

    I think the scale will look more like this (assuming there are 75 questions total):

    Raw Score-LSAT Score:

    75-180

    74-178

    73-176

    72-174

    71-172

    70-170

    68 or 69-169

    And so on…

    There could be a slight variation depending on the difficulty of the test, but it would not be nearly as generous as the one you guys created.

    If a student receives an average of 17 points per section on a total of 4 sections on the regular LSAT and using the LSAC conversion chart, the scaled score is roughly a 154. Why is that an average of 17 points on each section for a total of 3 sections according to this chart for the LSAT Flex is roughly a 144-150?

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

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert July 24, 2020 at 1:06 PM #

      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 🙂

  5. 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 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.

    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.

    • Roumita Dey December 3, 2020 at 11:08 PM #

      Hey, you had mentioned in your comment that you got 154 in actual LSAT Flex administered by LSAC? That means did you get a 45 raw score? So, for a scaled score you get 45 questions right with 59-60%? I am confused with the current LSAT flex conversion chart. It would be great if you confirm here. Thanks.

    Will the logical reasoning section be worth double points?

  10. Steven October 6, 2020 at 3:42 PM #

    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.
