If you leave the test site knowing that your performance was a disaster, you have the option of requesting that your exam not be scored. Within five working days, you must write to Law Services, ATTN: Score Cancellation, Box 2000-T, 661 Penn Street, Newtown, PA, 18940-0995. Include your name, address, social security number or nine-digit Law Services identification number, the test date, test center code and address, and a statement that you want your score cancelled. If you take this option, no score for that test date will ever be reported to any law school.

But because your paper will not be graded, you will never know how well you did. Therefore, you should use this option only if you are sure that your performance was a disaster. If you froze and went blank, if you left most of the questions unanswered, or if, like the apocryphal student I mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, you messed up the answer sheet, then you are in this category. But otherwise, you are best off letting the exam be graded. Students often can't predict their scores when they leave the test centers.
If you don't request cancellation within five working days, your score will be recorded. It can never afterward be expunged. Even if you take the test over, your second score will not replace the first. Law Services will report all the LSAT scores you earned within the last five years to every law school you apply to.
