ELAT - English Literature Aptitude Test Watch
It seems almost like a synoptic paper with 3-6 pieces to compare - I wonder if it can be that difficult?
Feel free to add thoughts below. I presume you can't really prepare for it anyway as well....
As this is the first year it's used, will results be treated as seriously as those for the LNAT etc? I asked a tutor at Magdalen on the open day and he said that it was "one of a number of factors" that will help them decide upon a potential offer, but just how much weight it holds I am unsure.
I'm glad there is a test though I guess
Still rather daunting...
I hope it's not too important this year, simply as my school offers no prat crit training, so I've tried to teach myself from a book which may or may not have helped me in practice... it's not that I can't *do* English but obviously I'm worried my skills won't show on an unfamiliar text in a context I'm not used to - how easy did current students find prat crit as a skill to pick up?
