    Who has got a good LNAT score, and are there any tips? I fee like every time I practice there is literally no hope.
    Heya, I got 29 on my LNAT last year which I'd say is a fairly good score, not the best but not bad.
    The thing I'd say is really practice, do every test you can. It was probably easier for me to do because I practised over summer when I didn't have anything to do and then took it at the start of October but when you can go through practice tests.
    It may be particularly helpful to find a book with reasoning behind the answers as online, if I remember rightly, it only had the reasoning for the first test. If you run out of practice tests, I only had one book, try doing some of the LSAT tests because those are reasonably similar and are recommended on the LNAT website, and I found those to be more widely availble online.

    I wouldn't really worry too much about about getting a particularly high score though, because the only thing mine got me was faster offer replies than a couple of my friends, and as I messed up one of my A levels I never even needed it. If you're really finding it hard, there are also a lot of universities that don't require it and I have friends who specifically applied to Cambridge and other universities that didn't need it (yes I do have a lot of friends studying law for some reason).

    Final point, what sort of scores are you getting? Some universities only use the score to make sure you aren't completely unsuited for law. One of my friends got into Bristol with a score far lower than average, where as I didn't and mine was a fair bit above the average, it was down to our GCSE grades (we got the same at A level). Universities use all different sorts of weighting systems so depending on where you want to go, you may not have to have a super high score anyway,

    I found this so helpful, I was just wondering where you applied and ended up going etc and also what results you got in A-level and GCSE (if you don't mind me asking?)
