    I really need advice on where to apply:

    9A*s 2As at GCSE
    2A s at A level (history and economics - B in maths dropped it), taking geography this year, predicted an A* or an A

    Got a lot of work experience e.g. Rhode Island State legislators office, fresh fields law firm, Goldman Sachs and Im finding more and more things to do on my gap year related to the legal rights of people with mental disabilities.
    I got 28 on my first LNAT paper, been steadily going up a mark or so each paper. Taking it on the 19th October.


    I genuinely don't know where would take me? Some people are saying to take a shot at Oxford , others say I won't even get into any of the top 10 for law so I'm really confused- any input whatsoever on where to apply/books to read/ more things to make my application better would be amazing!!

    I'm applying to Oxford so I had to apply by 15th October, but I sent my UCAS off at the end of September because it was complete, and it not being sent off was stressing me out, so I wanted to submit it ASAP

    I applied to Oxford so I had to send it off earlier than most anyway. Other than that I just wanted to get it over with instead of waiting until last minute

    It went.. I don't really know, actually? It's hard to guess. Especially since I forgot most of it, being so nervous and all. I think the multiple choice part was alright, although a little harder than the ones on the website maybe, and my essay questions were too. Good look with your test! x

    I'm sure you did well! Were the essays all based on factual information, or was it possible to do them without knowing statistics etc?

    I hope so I think at least two of the three could be answered without having any special knowledge on the issues beforehand! I did one of them and didn't refer to any statistics or current news once because the subject just didn't require that at all.

    Thanks, that's reassuring! The essay is the main thing that's worrying me, it's the randomness and unpredictability I don't like

    No problem! I was really stressed out about the essay part as well. Eventually, it wasn't as bad as it could have been, I think. Just sticking to your structure and trying to make it as clear and precise as possible is probably the most important thing - even more so than the actual quality of your arguments. Practising with some example questions and working out how to approach them is the best thing you can do for prep I'd say. I'm sure you'll do just fine!

    I don't think it's a bit of a stretch as it looks like you are on track for at least an A*!
    I would go for it!

    kind of but not quite, it on the LNAT website, they have this big stash of multiple choice and essay titles and they make different but equal papers for each day so that people couldn't just find out the questions from people who have done the test before them.

    Hey everyone!
    I've just sent off my application today and applied to Oxford, Warwick, Nottingham, Bristol and Exeter. I did the LNAT earlier this month and have no clue how I did (hopefully not too bad). I take IB and I'm predicted 43 overall (quite happy with that as I just found out today). I have HL 776 and SL 776. The only reason I don't have 3 7's at HL is due to the fact that we have a new syllabus in Art and we're really skeptical on how it will be marked so we thought it would be better just to predict me more realistically which I agree with. I also got 8A*s and 3As at GCSE.

    Good luck to everyone!
    OMG you've applied for almost the same as me! But I changed Exeter to UEA last minute... might change it back tho, got a couple of days still..

    Does anyone know how long offers take for any of these places? Already getting anxious and I only just got my welcome to track email!

    Good luck tho!
