    The difference between a Durham law degree and a Cambridge law degree, in terms of employability is small - thus it affords one the luxury of considering other aspects: Location, course structure etc...

    I don't believe it is that small actually.
    An employer is always going to look more favourably upon an oxbridge graduate than any other university graduate as this is the best of the best, I am sure Durham is good for Law but it won't simply open as many doors as Cambridge will.
    There is also the cliff hanger on when people say oh what university do you study at? You get to say Cambridge. There jaws drop, from being impressed which can't be said for Durham in my opinion.

    Well this conversation can't really continue any further as you seem to want to walk down the road of conjecture and speculation.

    I just don`t understand why the score is not automatically mailed to you after you finish the test, just as the universities get it immediately ?

    I'm guessing it's because universities don't want students to be put off applying just because they think they've got a bad score. Knowing what you've got may lead you to change your mind about applying, when your logic for thinking you have no chance may be completly irrational. Some LNAT universities don't rely on it that heavily, and all look at your application as a whole, where some factors can make up for a bad LNAT score. But applicants probably wouldn't realise this and would give up on applying just because they got a 'bad' score. I know some universities have cut off points, but from looking over past threads some people still get in with scores below that, and the cut off point may change on a yearly basis, depending on the standard of applicants, which is something an individual applicant wouldn't be able to gague themselves. Also, an applicant wouldn't be able to know how well they'd done on the essay section, which, for some universities, may be more important / a deciding factor above the multiple choice score. Well, that's what I've been told anyway.

    I was doing a bit of law - "assault" in fact.
    I think that's common law if I am not mistaken.

    Added to what becbec already said, as far as I know in the email they also include the year's average score. That's also why a lot of universities wait until the January deadline, so they can compare LNAT scores with the national average.
