It entirely depends on the university. For most universities, they don't have official weightings of how seriously they take the LNAT. But they have access to your scores and essay and they can use it, along with your A-Level grades, GCSE grades, personal statement, references, etc. to determine whether they should offer you a place.

What website are you using to practice? 13 is low, but 20 is pretty good, so if you get 20 in the real thing it wouldn't jeopardize your application by any means. I would definitely recommend using the website Arbitio to practice.
It's all about logic and analysis, so try to practice these skills in your day to day life. Learn to read between the lines of everything. Read an article and try to determine what the tone is, what the argument is, etc. This is what I did in the run up to my LNAT exam.

But overall you shouldn't be too worried. Just practice a bit every day and make sure you get your timing right. If you have good A-Level grades and a great personal statement, even if you get a bad LNAT score, it'll probably be fine.

Most universities dont require the LNAT. Less than a dozen do.

Bristol scores applications as 20% GCSE, 40% A levels etc and 40% LNAT.
They use both the MCQ score and mark the essay in-house.

If you are getting low scores (anything below early 20s) in the MCQ section then unless you have staggering high A level predictions, you might like to look at Unis outside LNAT.
