    In retrospect I should've applied to LSE instead of KCL because they don't use the LNAT. Now I've only one offer, but it's Cambridge. However, I don't have an insurance after being rejected by Bristol, Nottingham and KCL. Although KCL couldn't have been my insurance anyway, I do wish that LSE, KCL and UCL made AAA offers for law. In an ideal world an AAA offer from LSE would be my insurance.
    Don't worry mate! I'm sure you'll have a good time in cambridge! I mean, it /is/ cambridge. Hehe go for it! Did you only apply to 4 schools?

    Well LSE don't use the LNAT, so I would imagine you were rejected due to your grades. However, I have seen people rejected this year due to their personal statement lacking 'interest' or 'passion' so perhaps that is the case?

    As for Oxford, whether you did badly on your LNAT essay depends on whether you were rejected pre or post interview. Assuming you got an interview, my guess is that your interview would be the main reason for a rejection, not the essay


    34 is an amazing score by the way, congrats. UCL is also a great university and you really haven't lost out much by getting an offer from them! Do you think you will re-apply or stick with UCL?

    Yeah, I thought I had done well in my LNAT and so wass hugely disappointed when I didn’t get an interview with Oxford. I thought my personal statement was pretty decent, and I’ve got straight As, so I really don’t know why I didn’t at least make it to the interview round.


    I’m most likely going to stick with UCL! Although I was initially disappointed, after thinking about it I realised UCL is a great school too, in a great city

    I'm doing GCSE at the moment and want to do law (preferably at Bristol). I took both practise papers on the LNAT website and got around 17-19 (out of 42) on average. Is this good, considering I won't do it for two years? Also, what is a good number of A* at GCSE if you want to go to a uni like Bristol, KCL, Warwick etc for law? Thanks

    I emailed them and they said 'beginning of July'. Strange as they said 'early February' for early sitters that received their results 4/5th of Feb

    Bristol and Warwick are less selective than KCL, so it's different, but all of them don't have an A* criterion. Really, your GCSE results don't matter too much when it comes to applying to university. They are much more interested in how you did at level 3 (A-Level/IB etc). Whilst certainly work as hard as possible to achieve the best grades as it won't harm your application, but certainly do not think you stand no chance at Warwick and Bristol because you have 3As, 6Bs, and a C. Lots of people go there with equivalent grades, and a lot of people who have 7A*s and 3As end up studying sociology at Hull.

    Anything less than 25 on the LNAT is considered bad. The LNAT unis filter their applicants by the LNAT score first, followed by the AS/A2 grades & predictions and then finally by the Personal Statement. You can have outstanding grades and/or predictions but if your LNAT score is low then you are out of the running to get an offer from that reputable uni.

    in previous years, some applicants who scored less than 25 on the LNAT managed to get offers but these are rare occurrences. Don't take the risk of attempting the LNAT unprepared. Practise doing questions everyday and having good healthy number of hours of sleep prior to the LNAT test is critical.

    They could have made a mistake. I reckon you could try emailing the respective admissions tutors to clarify the situation and ask for feedback.

    No, lower than 25 is not considered bad. It may be if you wish to get into Oxford, but not everyone is trying to get into Oxford. Don't talk rubbish that your ill-informed teachers have told you.

    It wasn't my ill-informed teachers that told me. It was the admission tutors of two universities that told me when I visited them recently.

    So you claim two LNAT unis have a procedure where anyone with lower than 25 is automatically filtered out and therefore they all have this procedure? That's simply wrong. I know someone who got an offer at Durham last year with an LNAT of 21. If you look at the 2014 Law offers page, you will see a lot of people who have 21-24 get offers from top-tier unis.

    Perhaps you misunderstood what the people said, or maybe they don't know what they're talking about.
