How do I interpret my Arbitio LNAT scores?

I've done 3 Tests until now, including the Practice Test. My percentiles for the tests were 64%, 84% and 43%. As you can see, they are pretty varying percentiles and I'm unsure what I should take from them. What should my aim for Arbitio scores be? Saw many threads saying Arbitio is harder than the actual test, but still it would be good to have a reference point. Thanks!

In my experience it is true that Arbitio is normally harder than the actual thing, so you may find that you’ll score higher on the day than on Arbitio practice tests.

I’m not sure what you mean by “percentiles” (do you perhaps mean percentages? I have no idea how Arbitio would have access to accurate percentile data when afaik it doesn’t get published). What scores you got /42 would be more meaningful.

As for what your “aim” should be, this genuinely depends on the universities you’re going for as each of them will have different standards for each part of the LNAT.

No, I mean percentiles. They do publish them but Idk whether they're accurate or not. Anyways, my scores respective to the percentiles are 17, 23 and 18. I'm confident on my ability to get above average scores, so I think I'll aim for a bit higher than that. Unis are pretty close-mouthed on minimum/good scores so that doesn't really help a lot. Anyways, thanks for the help! Appreciate it a lot.

There's quite a bit of FOI data available re: what kind of scores each university takes/how they approach each section, so I'd argue it probably would help.

Arbitio is a private company and while I do think it's a helpful preparation tool, they're not actually officially endorsed by Pearson VUE (who run the LNAT). Thus, there is no reason they'd have access to data that appears not to be available online. Also worth mentioning that Arbitio has misrepresented the type of scores you need for certain unis in the past.

I've attached a spreadsheet which shows the number of offers given at each score for most LNAT universities. The data is a couple years old (most of it is from the 2019 cohort I think) but the LNAT hasn't changed significantly since then so it will likely remain reasonably accurate. I hope it will add to your perspective.

Thanks a lot for the spreadsheet. Clarified many things for me.
