    How was the LNAT? I don't know why but i find it so scary even though its not.
    How long did it take you to prepare for it?
    I didnt do a lot of revision, I just read news articles regularly and did the practices on the LNAT website and I did some questions from two LNAT books from my school library.
    I thought the texts in the exam were much harder than the practices I did but maybe that's because I started my exam before 8AM and I was knackered. Don't worry too hard and remind yourself it's not a test of what you know, but your ability.
    Have you done yours yet? How was it?

    Hi I posted about my LNAT experience in another thread, not sure how to quote it here so ill just copy and paste!


    Yeah i did the LNAT in September and sent application on the 15th October I thought it went reasonably well, I flagged 4 or 5 questions for review at the end, and was pretty confident in all of the answers I then settled on, bar one which was one of two things I couldn't decide on so guessed. I'd recommend having some sort of strategy in terms of time management, and practice it on past papers if possible. For example, there are 42 multiple choice questions and you have 95 minutes to complete and check them all. If you spend just under two minutes on each question and no longer, flagging ones unsure on, you will have about 15 minutes left to go back and check through all your answers. The essay question I chose to answer was something about prosecuting people for offences in the past, which I felt good writing about, but whether or not it was any good is obviously subjective and dependant upon the tutor reading it :eek: Again in terms of time, you have 40 minutes from the moment you start reading the three questions. So choose one quickly, and spend 5 minutes or so planning, 25-30 minutes writing and 5 minutes checking. Remember there is no spell check so carefully check your work. Hope this helps if you haven't taken the LNAT yet, and if you have, hope it helps others - and how did you find it?

    Nope, apply if you want! The deadline is Jan 15th and theoretically they have to give the same attention to all applications no matter when they are recieved.

    Hey Thank you very much. That was actually pretty helpful. For the essay, did you just stay on top of current affairs and read good quality newspapers?

    No problem, don't sound too surprised that it was helpful haha! :giggle:

    Yeah, i think its important for both parts, not just for the essay, to read widely around current affairs and in publications which are well written. For example, i subscribe to The Economist and read this weekly. However, so as to avoid your views becoming too narrowly informed, also consider an alternative perspective such as a broadsheet, perhaps The Guardian. In regularly reading quality newspapers and practising a few past papers for the multiple choice section, you'll be more than adequately prepared

    Haha I apologise, I often find pretty standard advice, thus I was pretty enthusiastic when I read yours

    Ah, yes I've been doing exactly that, although the essay part still makes m anxious for some reason. I guess through consistent practise I'll begin to ease up, hopefully
