As someone who did the LNAT last year too, I found it noticeably more difficult this time round. I think it might just be pot luck as to which questions you get, but if for sure felt more difficult this year compared to last in my opinion. Good luck for your uni applications!

I’m sure you did better than you think! Plus, even if you didn’t do so well, they use the rest of your application too not just the LNAT, and I know that Bristol apparently use the essay heavily also. I thought that I’d bombed my first geography a level exam and it literally haunted me forever, then it turned out to be my best paper. Sometimes going over it can make it seem like you did awfully, but in reality, I’m sure the exam didn’t go as badly as you think!

Plus, last year I got 28 and KCL still rejected me so they might not use the MCQ score so much either haha 😭

Ahh thank you, and I’m reapplying because my predicted grades were lower than what I achieved, and I got rejected from both KCL and LSE last year. I had a place at Newcastle, but decided it wouldn’t feel right going there and I could do more with my grades so I declined my offer. Unfortunately there were no places in clearing so I’m having to take a gap year haha, hopefully I’m more lucky this time round with my improved grades! I’m also sure KCL will accept you, the LNAT is just a small proportion of the assessment criteria after all
same here, but I found that the passages were quite easy to understand but the way the actual questions were worded was very similar to Arbitio

I felt exactly the same, sat it 2 weeks ago. The essay was better though I think but the multiple choice was extremely hard
I have mine on thursday and i'm so nervous my most recent practice test I got 26 hopefully if I just stay calm and actually read throughly i will be okay i'm so nervous since i'm applying to UCL and LSE and i've heard they are very strict on LNAT scores

best of luck!! don’t forget that everyone’s lnat is different so maybe it’s just mine that was difficult :smile:). you’ll do great just make sure you read the texts and understand them!

thank you so much!!!!

I hope all of your universities accept your applications! I was hoping someone could answer a question that I have

Does anyone know if the MCQs on the lnat ninja are representative of the difficulty of the actual lnat?

I sit my lnat next month for UCL and KCL so any feedback would be invaluable

I think so tbh that's what I used and I found it quite similar where else are you applying?

I'm also applying to LSE, and to the Cambridge foundation year because I have a list of extinuating circumstances longer than my history coursework lol, and I haven't decided my safe options yet, but they likely won't require the lnat.
