What are live proctored exams?
Live proctored exams are an opportunity for Blueprint students to take a Practice Exam in a timed, test-like situation with a proctor. While exams can always be taken in a timed format through your myBlueprint account, many students prefer the live proctored experience to prepare for test day.
Proctored exams are scheduled as Zoom webinars. The proctor will appear on screen, read testing directions, time each section, tell you when to move on, and when to finish the exam. You can choose which exam you'll take during the proctored section (more on that below).
What do I need to bring to a live proctored exam?
You'll need your computer, internet connection, and myBlueprint account to access your Practice Exams. Also, bring what you would bring to an actual LSAT! A couple of pencils, a water bottle, and a snack.
What if I have timing accommodations?
Keep an eye out in your myBlueprint account, as we offer proctored exams with 53-minute accommodated timing each month. You can also set your account to allow for accommodated timing.
Is there a limit to how many I can sign up for?
Nope! Sign up for as many as you find useful.
Which exam should I take?
For full-length proctored exams, we recommend starting with Extra Exams 5-15.
Can I use Law Hub to take the proctored practice exam?
Sure! But the drawback of taking an exam through Law Hub is that it does not give you Blueprint’s score report, analytics, or explanations upon completion.
What are the software requirements? Do I need my mic and camera on?
Proctored exams are broadcast in Zoom webinar format, which means that you will not be on mic or camera during the proctored exam. Zoom system requirements can be found here.
How does this impact my Score Increase Guarantee? Do I have to take live proctored exams?
Participation in live proctored exams is completely voluntary and separate from the Score Increase Guarantee. You are not required to take required exams as live proctored exams.
Will this create an official, reportable LSAT score for me?
Blueprint live proctored exams are for practice purposes only and will not generate an official, reportable LSAT score. Official, reportable LSAT scores are only administered directly through LSAC.
Wait, I can't access any exam other than Practice Exam 1 in myBlueprint. What gives?
The Blueprint LSAT curriculum was designed to begin with Practice Exam 1. We want all of our students to use Practice Exam 1 as an opportunity to receive a diagnostic score and become more familiar with the LSAT, before attending our lessons or taking additional practice exams. For this reason, Blueprint LSAT students do not have access to any additional exams until they have completed and scored Practice Exam 1.
So if you have not yet taken Practice Exam 1 in myBlueprint, you will not be able to take any other exam in the Exam tab of my Blueprint as a proctored practice exam, or score any exam from LawHub, until Practice Exam 1 has been completed and scored. If you have not taken Practice Exam 1 yet and would still like to take a proctored exam, we recommend using that time to take Practice Exam 1.
