I am going to appear for the LCAT this year and i need to know a couple of things;
1. Are calculators allowed in LCAT?
2. How similar is LCAT to SAT I?
3. How can I best prepare myself given that i am not in pakistan currently?

Have you given the SAT I?
People residing outside of Pakistan are exempt from the LCAT and their decisions are based on their SAT I results.
The answers to your other questions however, are;
1. No, they are not.
2. Lcat is based on the SAT I, but the math is considerably harder. Occasionally they ask questions from A-Level Math and that of FSC. On the other hand, the english is comparitively easier than that of the SAT I.

Yes, I have given SAT I and I submitted my results asw! As I was given an option, I chose to take the LCAT that's why I am inquiring about it. Are you certain about the Math topics or is it generalized?

It is generalized, most of the paper is of SAT level math but some questions are more advanced. The university itself has not declared any specific syllabus for it, so they can pretty much ask anything (what a mean thing to do -.-)
How much did you score in the SAT, if you don't mind me asking?

Yeah, that's exactly what I've heard.
Ikr!! They should set up a syllabus so at least we know the boundaries of the questions. Anyway, I scored 1900 with a 790 in Math.

What are the total marks allocated in LCAT? I know it's 2 hours and 55 mins long but I'd be grateful if anyone would let me know the marks.

Thank you! :) But I've already enrolled in Anees Hussain so I know the time limit, but I was wondering about the total marks.
Yeah. The total number of questions are 150 so the marks will also be 150. I also heard that we will have an essay. Is it true? If yes, then add those 12 marks as well.

Yes, there's an essay as well. You'd be given 25 minutes to write an essay.
