    I’m considering law degree and discovered that a LNAT test is required. How difficult is it seems as most is multiple choice and I’m not that great at essay writing and the practice questions I’ve seen I don’t know about so some of them I couldn’t even write anything. I’m in year 12 so when would I have to do the test?

    I did my LNAT 2 days ago, you have to take it the same year that you're applying to unis so I assume year 13 for you. Only certain unis require LNAT so you don't have to take it but the essay questions aren't as bad as they seem as you sort of think of ideas on the day at least that's what I did

    Yeah but don’t they give you the topic to write about? It could be something I don’t know much about. How are the multiple choice questions?

    If you ain't good with essay questions then a Law degree is definitely not for you haha! As a student of the Law you have to have excellent written communication skills so an LNAT should not be a challenge if you would make an excellent student of the Law.

    Yeah well I got good grades in English GCSE I just think I could improve and don’t know how. The biggest worry is what to write about because they give you 3 options and you may not know about the topics provided

    Doing an essay subject such as Psychology can help you prepare for such situations... There are books out there which teach you how to write good essays or how to approach an essay question, so I would recommend reading those to start off with!

    Do some reading around Law and current affairs...I had no clue about 2 of the essay questions provided but the last 1 I found great, studying a level government and politics definitely helped for me aswell. You have plenty of time to prepare, look at past questions and use common sense on the day to come up with arguments

    Just keep practicing your MCQ, when the day comes you'll be fine- I was worried too but when the day came, it was fine. Time management is a hugeeee factor though!

    I just researched about human rights, ECHR, etc. and was lucky enough to have an essay question on that. You'll just have to be prepared for whatever you get

    Hey what questions did you get? If you can remember haha. I'm sitting it in a couple of weeks :/ also did you find the practice tests on the LNAT website easier than the real thing??
