I understand what you're trying to say, but it's different. At least in my situation it was and I know I'm not the only one. With exams in college, you're tested on the course material. No matter how big the exam, it comes down to whether you know the material or not. The LSAT and other standardized tests don't test knowledge. From my point of view (a non-native speaker with a different cultural background), standardized tests have an apparent bias. Aside from the bias, it also takes us longer to get through questions because we don't process the language as quickly as a native speaker. I'm not trying to make any excuses or anything of the sort, but I just wanted to share my experience to show that it is possible to not do well on exams such as the LSAT or the SAT and still be successful in school.
