Emergency LNAT advice

I've been doing a LOT of LNAT prep over the past few weeks as I've got my test in 4 days. Although I've spent all this time preparing, my practises seem to be fruitless, as I'm inconsistent (lows of 54% and highs of 70%) and scoring more lower scores than higher scores. All the prep ive done in the past 2 ish weeks has proven unhelpful as I look back to true LNAT practise tests, which are significantly more difficult. I'm applying to 4 LNAT unis, (Oxford, Bristol, KCL and LSE), and I'm reasonably confident my grades can take me there (A*A*A* 998888777 at GCSE), but my LNAT scores are placing doubts in my mind. I cant seem to figure out why im messing up these practises, I'm well within time and are thinking the questions through thoroughly, yet I'm still scoring well below what I need to be. Any advice? I've worked so hard to be in a position to apply to these unis, I dont want to let an admissions test dismantle all the hours I've put in.
Um, where are you getting these practice scores, because practice sources can give you wildly varied results. And if you haven't tried an official practice test from the LNAT website, you ought to, as this will give you the most accurate standing of where you are right now.

Ive been using the official LNAT practice resources more in the past week, but have been getting poor results from (https://law-mind.co.uk/lnat-question-bank/), better results from (https://law-mind.co.uk/lnat-question-bank/), and good results from (The Ultimate LNAT Collection) - I think the last official practise paper I did for the LNAT was in the region of 60%.

Contrary to what you believe, your scores are actually quite good. Especially when considering that the average for most years sits at around 50%. Though your LNAT score might not necessarily ameliorate your application, I can tell you that it most certainly will not hinder it. So keep doing what you're doing - don't expect to sustain a major jump in score within 4 days. Who knows, you might get an easy test on the day / or have a good day and smash the test so I wouldn't worry too much. You're score is fine - make sure your 5th is a nice old safety that you can fall back on.
