I seem to have not rescheduled my LNAT exam for Saturday 25th and have 24 hours to get up to scratch - I'm panicking. Can anyone send any help at all? I've done practice tests and essays, etc. but what else can I do?

Make sure you know where you are going and go early. My exam centre was pretty hidden in an apartment building. You don't have to do too much to prepare anyway but maybe you could practice by planning a few questions for the essay.

Hi, what sort of plans would you recommend? I have a basic essay structure for all questions - do you have any tips?

I would plan for around 15 minutes, maybe a little more. During planning you ideally want to think up all the arguments you want to use and organise them in a logical way. Then spend the rest of the time on writing them up into an essay. You can write good sentences during the planning stage if you think of them as you plan and then include them into the essay later if they fit in well or change them a little. But you don't want to spend too much time thinking about wording while planning, it's mostly about brainstorming ideas first and thinking about how they fit in together.

Thank you so much - I'll try to use this advice as much as possible.

Planning for 15 minutes wont give you enough time to get a good essay, you dont need to plan for that long.
There's a university of Cambs video on youtube that talks through the essay. It really helped me.
