    Hey! I know someone replied to you already but I did the LNAT this school year and there are a few things I wish I had known, so that I wouldn't have had to have crammed as much as I did! First of all, look at the universities' websites to see if they state what they look for in an LNAT results (MCQ score, essay or combined). Some unis even have a cut-off score or through 'Freedom of Information' requests, you can see what the average score is for a particular year.

    I bought two books through Amazon with sample papers (a Mark Shepard one and another one - I can't quite remember but I can have a look!) For me, I dedicated 7 minutes per text for reading and answering the questions so that I wasn't scared of the timings when it came to the exam. Mastering the techniques and tricks they ask about is key - I could write a whole extra post on tips for answering the questions but feel free to pm me over the summer if you have any questions on this!

    Finally, I would say that the essay is what I found to be the hardest actually. Reading around and deciding what some of the questions are asking for is tricky but having sound knowledge of controversial issues is sufficient. They just want to know how well you can argue a point, with clarity and persuasion etc. I didn't have time in my month of revision to practice essays but I would strongly recommend doing so! Especially practice some typical persuasive phrases you could use in any essay.

    Start early! You're doing a great job by even thinking about it now. I got an offer from 2/3 of my LNAT unis (Kings and Bristol) so revision really does pay off! Some people say that it's not something you can practice but I believe that you can

    All the best xx
    Thank you so much, glad I asked this because you've really helped me out! I'm feeling more motivated now, your timing technique sounds good I'll give it a go. I'll definitely message you when I'm revising if that's alright with you! Is it marked like 1 mark per MCQ correct or do you not know? You're an angel, thank you ever so much x

    I applied to Lancaster, Liverpool, Manchester and Chester. I got all 4 offers back but have chosen University of Manchester as my Firm Choice after much deliberation! Good luck everyone ⭐️

    It's one mark per MCQ correct, and then the essay isn't graded but is instead looked at by each uni.

    [QUOTE=Bobkata;63750021]Insure Manchester. It is an amazing uni and I have no idea why league tables place it that low.
    There are a few commercial firms that stated on their website which uni are they recruiting from and Manchester was one of them. Go for it. Good luck
    I think I will! Thank you! I am slightly worried about how far down it is in the league table though

    Internationally, it is a well-regarded uni! League tables place it that low because of the student satisfaction which doesn't mean you won't be happy there It means there are many students who take surveys quite serisously. And don't forget Manchester has the biggest law course with the most students. That explains everything
