Hi

I have just tried the online practice LNAT test with no preparation. I scored 21/42. Can anyone advise how many points I could potentially gain through practice.?I was hoping to apply for Oxbridge where I understand they look for around 29 min. I have until the summer to improve. Also any tips to improve or train?

TIA!

No one can predict this. Just practice using timed tests and of course prepare. There will be resources online and official ones.

Well, no. Oxford might look for 29* but Cambridge does not use the LNAT, nor does LSE. You might consider applying for those if you fear performing poorly on the LNAT.

Practise, you should get better.

*Last year, the average Oxford offer holder had 28.25 on the LNAT. Seems that 29 is not the target. Remember, the average being X does not mean you have to get X. This figure will be pushed up by exceptional performances, in the 35+ range, so there will be people with lower than 28.

The mark required to get in to each University changes each year, dependent on the average score of the people who take the test. For example this year the average sore was 1.1 marks lower than last year and therefore, the requirements are lower.

Please bear in mind though, the average is indeed that, average. There are many FOI's available online that show Oxford have rejected people who have scored over 35, therefore they must accept people who score under the average too. You are doing well by starting your practise early, keep at it, use a variety of resources and you'll improve no doubt.

One thing I will say (having done the LNAT this year myself and having used a variety of resources), there is a huge variation in difficulty in online resources. Do not be shocked if you are scoring over 30 in Mark Shepherds test (in his very popular book) and then find the actual test much harder. I think this happened this year and more than likely happens every year. I used Arbitio and it was extremely tough. I was only scoring 18/19 on those tests but scored 26 this year in the LNAT. The official tests, I was scoring over 30. Just a heads up!
