About PhiLSAT. Philippine Law School Admission Test (PhiLSAT) is a qualifying exam for aspiring law students. Starting the academic year 2017-18, aspiring law students will be required to take the PhiLSAT before they can be admitted to any law school, according to a Legal Education Board memorandum issued on December 29, 2016.
When is PhiLSAT? It is administered annually. The first aptitude test was administered on April 16, 2017. The Center for Educational Measurement, Inc. (CEM) has been accredited to manage the affairs and activities related to the operation of the PhiLSAT. With CEM’s experience as an educational testing agency, it was commissioned to develop the PhiLSAT, ensure the reliability and validity of the test, and uphold the confidentiality of results and integrity of its administration.
Where to take? It can be taken in 7 sites around the country:
- Baguio City,
- Metro Manila,
- Legazpi City,
- Cebu City,
- Iloilo City,
- Davao City, and
- Cagayan de Oro City.
When is the registration? There’s still no official date as of this post. But the target registration will be by March 2017.
How much is the fee? There will be an examination fee not exceeding P1,500—this amount is not yet final, however, as the LEB expects to determine the final computation by the end of February.
What is the passing score? 55 percent is the passing score.
How long is the exam? PhiLSAT is a one-day aptitude test intended to measure the academic potential of an examinee pursuing the study of law.
What is the coverage of the exam? The PhiLSAT is going to be multiple choice, covering the following areas:
- Communication and Language Proficiency
- Critical thinking skills
- Quantitative Reasoning
If I pass, does this mean I can go to any Law School I want to enroll in? Yes, but your prospected Law School has prerogative to require you to take supplementary exam. In UP, for example, you still have to pass its UP Law Aptitude Exam.
Who are qualified to take PhiLSAT? Those qualified to take the test include holders of a 4-year bachelor’s degree or its equivalent, and those expecting to gain one at the end of the current school year.
Who are exempted to take PhiLSAT? Honor graduates granted professional civil service eligibility, who are enrolling within 2 years from their college graduation, are exempted from taking the test. Those exempted from the exam will have to submit civil service recognition to the LEB.
