Hello, I was granted accommodations for the January 2019 LSAT, and I'm scheduled to take the test on February 1. From previous posts, I can see that, usually, it is to be expected the same test as the regular Saturday one. Considering that I'll be taking the test almost a week later, I was wondering if I should still expect to receive the same test that was administered on January 26?

Thank you!

Yes, I've seen them give the same test up to a week later. So, as soon as Accomm testers start reporting in, you'll know whether you are likely to have the same test or not.

Hi I was wondering if you have determined whether the January 2019 exam was the same or the January 2015 Sabbath test? Is there a section where you will be discussing the accommodated exam ro updating?

Thanks

Some had the same test and others had the February 2015 LSAT. There is no way to know in advance which one you will get however!

Not sure I follow you...? By design they are different and accord with the granted accommodation, but they are just as quiet and professional, if that's what you mean.

Note:

For the January 2019 Accommodated test administrations, some students had the same LSAT as given to the regular Saturday January 26th, 2019 examinees, as described here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27093.

Others were given the February 2015 LSAT, as described here: https://blog.powerscore.com/lsat/februa ... at-details.

Good morning it's Alberto.
Yes i know its back to back questions i sent a post reply a few hours after i took the LSAT 2019 Tuesday Jan 29th, yes accommodations.

I sent it to Mr. Dave K. to reply or whomever respectfully could. Questions on Logic Game confusion and archaic primitive column game descending order of whose tall or short sent Jan 29th evening. Anyway new day Jan 30th postmortem:

On the Reading Comp. that last question on the topic about the supernova event seen in 1056 year, if i recall and trepidation by research scientist about accuracy of the Native people reading the stars ... I think on the last question i missed it and should had referred back to passage ... this is one of those situations i should had analyzed deeper.

I should had picked another answer than I did, but ... I assumed something else. I am going to be haunted by that if I answered the incorrect answer and lost that 1 point......

Hi Alberto,

I'm terribly sorry, but we had to delete and amend a portion of your post that specifically referred to an answer choice and answer choice wording, due to LSAC policies regarding discussion of the test:

Per LSAC policies, you are allowed to discuss LSAT question topics and difficulty in general. For example, this means you can identify a game by name and discuss whether you thought it was difficult. You cannot talk about specific answer choices, however. So, "The Water Tubes game was difficult for me" is ok; "the answer to the first three questions was A in that game" is not acceptable.

We would love to be able to answer your question, but unfortunately LSAC does not allow us to discuss the test in that kind of detail. :(

Thanks, and hoping for the best for you! :-D

Its Alberto
I saw you said had to delete part of my questions

Apologies, I did not know I could not go into specifics so accept my apology.
It was not my intent to place you on the spot. So understood. Besides, there is a person who is accommodations that has not tested yet and LSAC policy not to discuss sorry. So its understood, thank anyway.
