LNAT feeling vs results

i've just sat my LNAT and i feel like i completely failed :frown: i was averaging 28-33 in practice but i just panicked and found the real thing so much harder. those who sat the LNAT last year how did you feel it went vs your actual results ? i also think my essay was pretty weak and poorly written, applying to oxford so that isn't great

so real the lnat was such a pain. at least its over with. i think everyone struggled. i felt alr though. usually youve done better than you think
hey guys i have a question.

does anyone know if LNAT ninja questions are worth doing? im not sure if theyre reflective of the actual LNAT's difficulty.

Ive been doing Arbitio tests with a high of 20 and a low of 15, still need to complete 7 more then i intend to do the official samples to see if the arbitio magic of going from a score of 18 to 27 works.

Any feedback or advice, or even words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated
The LNAT felt really tough this year. Sure we’ll be fine :smile:

what made it tough this year? the passage lengths? The questions? The passage contents?

for me personally i didn't have a problem with timing, but alot of my passages were based upon biology and scientific things. same w the questions, even got asked maths calculations (not my strongest area lol)

I am sure you'll do fine :smile: Can I ask what type of maths stuff? I've briefly skimmed over percentages, fractions and proportions

it was addition division stuff lol i'm honestly sure you'll be good i'm just shocking at anything with big numbers
I took mine 2 years ago and felt like it went awful but I ended up getting 27 and got into Oxford. The test always feels hard because it's not designed for you to get anything close to full marks, you probably did better than you thought you did and are just remembering the questions you struggled with/took longer on over the ones you got right.
