I took the LSAT in 1981 and then again in 1993, and I wish to compare it to my most recent exam scores. I have the respective percentiles. Sorry i have 1993. The 1981 test was 618, 78th percentile. Is it fair to call that a 161?

Hi dfruit,

Thanks for the post. Based on a percentile comparison, the 78th percentile would fall at a 160 on today's exam.

However, please be aware that the pre-1982 LSAT is markedly different than today's test. So different, in fact, that I’d say a direct comparison is actually impossible.

I hope this helps!
