    Hi,
    I have applied to study law about a week ago, one of the universities I chose being the University of Nottingham. I have received a conditional offer this evening, which I am obviously over the moon about.

    However, I'm worried that it might be an error. The LNAT results are only able to be downloaded by the universities from the 21st October, according to the LNAT website. Nottingham stated in the acknowledgement letter that it is 'necessary for us to have your results from the LNAT before we can further consider your application'. Furthermore, I was offered AAB- a grade lower than the standard offer. The combination of these things make me think that it could be an error. Does anybody know if Nottingham ever offers before LNAT results are received?

    If anybody is able to shed any light on this I would be really grateful- I will of course ring admissions tomorrow to confirm but I would be grateful for for any comments here too.

    Thanks!!

    I was also very confused about this - I got one today as well. Only think I can think of is that they were released early this year as there isn't a massive amount of info available about the release date?? I wouldn't worry though, I very much doubt they would make an error but it is strange.

    Yeah, I'm hoping that LNAT just haven't updated their website about the release date! Well done for getting an offer, might see you at Nottingham ahah

    They could have also looked at your application as a whole, personal statement, references, gcses etc, and realised that you're actually quite a strong candidate with potential, ring admissions up but I don't think its anything to stress about (easier said than done I know! ) --also, well done!

    doonsbury CinnamonSmol Al2706 It's not an error thankfully! Apparently they've already recieved the LNAT scores so it's probably just the LNAT website that's incorrect
