    This may be a stupid question, but do universities lower their entrance grades for an individual if they do really well on their LNAT?
    For example if the entrance requirements were AAA could they lower it to a predicted AAB if the LNAT score was brilliant?

    Thanks !

    I believe that most universities will use it as a system for wading through similar applications of higher calibre. Therefore it is seen as a secondary factor, rather than a primary factor such as A-Levels or other equivalent qualifications. It is because of this that it seems unlikely that universities will offer lower entrance grades to those who excel on the LNAT, purely because it is a system for them to choose the candidates that they feel are the best. They already have the applicants grades/predicted grades and so if they choose to provide a lower offer it is probably because of some other factor in the application (extracurricular talent valuable to the university - such as sport, music, drama etc., outstanding personal statement...)
