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.

Now without further ado, here is the LSAT-Flex score predictor conversion table. Remember this assumes a 75- or 76-question LSAT-Flex.
