I understand what you mean, but with the first passage i could find more than I wanted. Hence me choosing b or c for question 1. Both applied, and I could argue each one, C more as it is "unarticulated" but B can still be argued. Or am I just over analysing things?
The thing with question one is that with b (imprisoning the mentally ill is shameful), they actually say that in the passage in the second sentence, " This is shameful"...hence it's not an assumption....

With C, they don't say it....but if it weren't true...the argument would fall apart so it must be an unarticulated assumption.

Hope this helps.

Lol! No..i'm lucky....i miss it cos i applied this year...but i did Critical thinking AS...and i know loads of people ****ged it off as being a worthless AS level...but obviously it's not so worthless cos the top unis seem to think it teaches good skills, as shown by the LNAT!!!

If you want a book....i could recommend a good book on critical thinking...got me an A in AS CT.

I applied to Cambridge (Gonville & Caius) for law (BA)....and i now need to get 3As to make it there!!! I'm soooooo lucky!! I have no idea how i got in!!

The book is called:

Critical Thinking for Students by Roy van den Brink-Budgen

I have the 3rd edition...and i found it quite interesting actually!! It's not a hard read at all!!

Have you thought about where to apply yet??

Well I'm going to apply to Cambridge for entry in 2005, and if I get in, I'm going to apply for the Double Maîtrise law course. I'm thinking about Downing or St Johns, but still not sure as of yet. Any advice?

I personally would go for Downing....it has a great reputation for law..not to mention being a really beautiful college!!! But you should really choose on which one you prefer....visit both...and then choose....cos the teaching standard in cambridge colleges is going to be the same as lectures are on a university level...so its just the supervisions which are different.

I chose Caius because its got a good location...it's one of the larger colleges in Cambridge...and its got really nice buildings!!

Also...i based part of my choice on the fact that they didn't want any essays or tests taken...just an interview!!!

I really am lucky to be born a year earlier. Thank goodness I don't have to do the LNAT's. Otherwise, I don't know how I would have fared against next year's crop of applicants.

Although, when I think about it, the Law written test in December 2003 had 16 multiple choice questions and an essay. Afterwards, everyone said the multiple choice was hard, but I thought it was pretty easy actually. Maybe that's why I got accepted, heh.

guys,

I don't know where that sample question came from...my guess is that they pulled that from an american test such as the LSAT. I spoke to a couple of law admissions officers at participating unis and they said that the company hasn't even been appointed yet... apparently examples will come out in due course. A friend from college who's apply for law like me has pulled together an open forum (no registration needed) and the plan is have a group disect the practice test when it comes out. We're going to try and keep chit chat to a minimum.

Also it would be good to share test results after it is all over and compare with admissions results to see how much weighting they gave it...if you are into post-mortems that is!

Coupled with the angst and panic attacks, a potential oxbridge law candidate has to endure a fair amount before they even study!
One objective of the test must be to see how a student copes under this extra pressure. If you can't handle a test and an interview, I think you'll struggle to make the cut at law school and in your career.
