Beginning in September 2019, the LSAT exam will be exclusively offered in digital format in North America. The Digital LSAT will contain the same multiple-choice content and structure as the traditional paper-and-pencil LSAT, but it will now be delivered on easy-to-use tablets instead. These tablets will be provided to test takers at each testing center.
Test day is now shorter for test takers because the LSAT Writing will be administered separately from the LSAT multiple-choice test sections, online via a secure testing platform. Another important change is that answers are now selected on the screen by tapping on the answer choice. There are no more paper answer sheets. The tablet offers great features such as a timer with a five-minute warning, highlighting, and flagging to keep track of questions that a test taker may want to revisit in a section.
