With just days to go, you want to be focusing on your weak areas (whether it is MBE, Essays or the MPT). If you feel confident about the MPT (and it isn’t a large part of your score, which it isn’t in NY) I would spend your time on the work that will get you the most bang for your buck (If you are weak on MBEs, make sure you work on those. If you are weak on essays, make sure you do plenty of those). However, if you don’t feel confident about the MPT or haven’t done much practice, make sure you do at least one or two before the exam.
Adjusted scores lie in a bell curve , tapering off at the extremes and concentrating near the median . For example, there might be a 3–5 question difference between a score of 175 and a score of 180, but the difference between a 155 from a 160 could be 9 or more questions--this is because the LSAT uses an ordinal grading system. Although the exact percentile of a given score will vary slightly between examinations, there tends to be little variance. The 50th percentile is typically a score of about 151; the 90th percentile is around 165 and the 99th is about 173. A 178 or better usually places the examinee in the percentile.
