Agh just came out of my lnat and not feeling very confident tbh. The MCQ were ok but the essay was a disaster. Out of the 3, the only essay question that appealed to me was about human rights (which i am now very ineterested in and want to learn more about)! I didn't finish my conclusion and just had a few more words to add and I also didn't have enough time to proof-read it 🙂🔫

And don't worry, depending on the unis you applied to, some don't look at the essay and only really look at the MCQ score so if you did well in that you'll be fine

You took the LNAT, forget about it now. Score is usually more important that the essay, but they work in a complimentary fashion: getting a better score can offset a sub-par essay, a great essay can offset a below average score. Every application is individually considered for all its features.

However, Oxford and UCL do take the essay into account with an official mark scheme.

Bristol counts the essay for 40% of the LNAT component, with five bands.

KCL does not compute the essay into a score, rather seems to consider it for borderline candidates.

Nottingham takes the essay into account, but is not determinate of any decision.

Durham has a qualitative mark scheme.

Glasgow views the essay as an add-on to the application.

SOAS does not say how they view the essay.

In summary, essay of course counts and is important but so is the score. Focus now on your UCAS (if still to be submitted) and getting top grades at A-level. If any interviews apply in your case, take them as they come

Thanks for this- really motivating! Thing is I am actually applying to Oxford but yeh I guess I'm just hoping to score well MCQ to even out the essay. I am thinking of applying to SOAS too but it's not my first choice. I'm also applying to Warwick and UoB which don't take it into account so if all goes terribly, I have them as a pretty decent backup
