LSAT Handscoring: The Basics

After you turn in your LSAT exam booklet and answer sheet, LSAC will use machine scoring to mark your answers and calculate your score. If you want to verify or contest the results of LSAC’s machine scoring, you can submit a request to have your answer sheet rescored by hand. In other words, instead of having a machine run the results, a person will be responsible for marking your answer sheet. Note that the person will only review your answer sheet, not any answers you may have left in your test booklet.

How do I request LSAT handscoring?

You must make your request for handscoring in writing to LSAC, and LSAC must receive your request no later than 60 days after the date of your test. You should include the following materials and information in your request:
• A copy of your LSAT Score Report
• Your request for handscoring and the reason behind this request
• Your name, LSAC account number, and last four digits of your Social Security or Social Insurance number
• The date that you took the LSAT
• Your test center name and code number
• All required fees (see below), either by check or money order payable to LSAC. You can also give your credit card number and expiration date – LSAC accepts VISA, MasterCard, DISCOVER, and American Express.

How much does LSAT handscoring cost?

Handscoring comes with a fee of $100, or $95 CDN + 5% GST.

What happens after a test is handscored?

If the handscored result is different from the original score calculated by machine, regardless of whether the new result is higher or lower, LSAC will mail the new score to you and each law school to which you have applied.
