I am applying to Cambridge and I know that it is traditionally hand-written however due to covid they are online. I don't know if they mean that we write them and send photos or whether we type them like the LNAT.. Did anyone sit the CLT last year? If so please let me know!

Hey! Youre absolutely correct - the CLT is ordinarily hand written. That being said, after having sat it last year, it was typed. I hope that helps!

Yeah, it absolutely was much more easier to edit. I also find that I type faster so it gave me an extra 10mins ish to plan (which is absolutely essential).

Overall, I'd say that I actually quite enjoyed the test but that is coming from someone who studied both law and Eng Lit at Alevel and so enjoyed essays anyway. The only thing was that I put in quite a lot of effort to change/adapt my writing style and tone for a uni essay rather than a college essay - that meant producing a much more focussed and in depth introduction, clear line of argument and removing the use of "I" throughout!

Wow that's great! Did you get an offer from Cambridge? Also, how would you recommend structuring the CLT?I know you have to provide counter arguments but are those separate paragraphs?

I did get an offer, yes. In terms of structure mine was very much:
- strong intro
- 2 points for
- 1 counter argument disproved
- conclusion

If you'd like, you can PM me and I will send over my email address; I could read some of your practise essays and even send over some of my typed practise ones!

hey! I'm currently prepping for the CLT-- could you read over an essay of mine or possibly send me a practice paper of yours? I tried PMing you, but it didn't work. Thank you!
