Trying to get this straight!

To start the course in October 2020 you apply before 15th Oct 2019. If you apply in October the year before you’re aiming to start the course obviously you’re only applying with predicted grades - which is fine, feeling very confident about those - but my GCSE/IGCSE results are very average and underwhelming so was hoping stellar predicted grades and LNAT score would compensate slightly.

But if you apply in Oct 2019 you wouldn’t have your LNAT score yet, because you do it in your last year of school, right? Or do I need to sit the LNAT ASAP - this month! - to have a score in time for next October!!??

From online:
“If you are applying to UCAS in 2018-19 you must also take the LNAT during the 2018-19 testing year. This begins on 1 September 2018.”

For background, I’m 16 and just started 5 A-levels (in AS year/lower sixth). And confused 😐

Cambridge don't use the LNAT, they have their own admissions test.

cambridge uses their own law exam i think its called the CLAT

oxford is the one that uses it

also cambridge doesn't put a lot of weight on GCSEs, if they're average it shouldnt be a huge issue tbh. what were they?

Thanks for the info, didn’t know that about Cambridge. I take it you don’t do the CLAT before applying? Will look it up online 👍🏻

My GCSEs/IGCSEs were A*98AAAABBBB5E. Not very bad but compared to those of other Oxbridge applicants I’ve seen... 😬

Thank you! So if you apply in October 2019 I take it you won’t be able to include your LNAT score on the UCAS application? Or does it work differently?

Actually found a good website explaining it!
https://www.tcs.cam.ac.uk/news/00047...lnat-test.html

Does anyone know if a good LNAT score would help you get into a uni that doesn’t have any admission test? Asking because my insurance choice is going to be Queen’s uni in Belfast, which hasn’t an admissions test and only requires AAA currently.
