In November 2016, the Spanish LSAT will be offered at two test centers in Puerto Rico. If you wish to register for the Spanish LSAT, make sure that you select a test center in Puerto Rico that is labeled LSAT EN ESPAÑOL.
Because the Spanish LSAT is not precisely the same test as the LSAT in English, it cannot be scored on the same 120–180 scale. However, the Spanish LSAT scores are on a standardized scale that works in an analogous way and can be interpreted in an analogous way. Where your score falls on the Spanish LSAT scale can be taken as an indication that your performance is comparable to the performance of someone whose score falls in a similar range on the 120–180 scale. For example, while the median score of the Spanish LSAT scale (230) is not identical to the median of its counterpart (150), the two scores are comparable.
