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 Blueprint 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).
How do I sign up?
Go to the Live page on your student account, scroll down, then under Type select Proctored Exams, and click the blue Register button for the exam you want to attend.
The session will show as Registered on the Live page.
The session will also show up in your Study Plan.
To unregister for a proctored exam, hover over the green Registered button, it will change to Unregister, then click. An alert will pop up to confirm.
If you would like to re-register, click Register again.
You can join from either the Live page or your Study Plan. 10 minutes before your session starts, the Registered button will change to a Join button. Click to launch Zoom and join!
What do I need to bring to a live proctored exam?
You'll need your computer, internet connection, and Blueprint account to access your Practice Exams. Also, bring what you would bring to an actual LSAT! Five sheets of scratch paper, a couple of pencils, a water bottle, and a snack.
What if I have timing accommodations?
Keep an eye out in your Blueprint account, as we offer a proctored exam with 53-minute accommodated timing before each exam administration. You can also select your timing when you go to take an exam in your Blueprint account.
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?
You can take any exam you'd like! If you have yet to take Practice Exam 1, you should start there. There will be an hour-long post-exam discussion after most proctored exams with standard timing. The discussion will cover one particular exam, listed in the event description. If you plan to attend the discussion, we recommend you take that exam.
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.
