Hi guys, sitting my LNAT

Hi there! What kind of essay topics does the LNAT essay focus on? I've been practicing past essay questions and just wanted to know a rough idea.

does anyone know what kind of essay topics will be coming up this year. I've been practicing past essay questions and just want to know a rough idea.

hi there! as i'm sure you'll know, the essay topics are completely at random due to being computer generated, so to predict the exact type of questions that will be asked would be a pretty difficult task. though to answer your question, i sat my LNAT just a few weeks ago, and the two that i was given were along the lines of 'Should everyone who is able to benefit from learning recieve free education?' and 'Should catholics be allowed to ban gay couples from hostels?' with the third one being also on religion, but i can't remember exactly what the question was. i ended up answering the latter, just because i felt like if i could write an more interesting essay, but overall, the questions were definitely manageable, and you also get a choice of 3 so it is highly unlikely that you won't be able to create an decent argument on atleast one of them. best of luck !!

Like others have said it's impossible to know what topics will come up this year or in any particular sitting but if you want some typical free essay topics of the general kind that come up there are a few pages -

Thank you guys! If there is anyone sitting the LNAT here, I have practiced a few questions and can provide them to anyone in need. I followed the guideline and found that following a simple intro, for and against and conclusion structure really helped.

Honestly, same. There's another site which is actually great called the lawyer portal. It gives you an essay and 4 sets of questions to answer. There is no time limit and gives you the answers once you have answered the 4 questions. It repeats this process. Try it out and tell me what you think!

I've just been trying out everything. The LNAT is so unpredictable. I'm actually resitting my LNAT and learning from the mistakes that I made last time.

lnat ninja has a massive question bank that you could do 42 at a time, but ive done all of them so i wanted to do the harder arbitio ones and then do the three official ones, but for now ill have to ease up on revision and spread out the official papers. The lawyer portal for me isnt great, theyre not full length tests and that to me isnt representative of the difficulty. And same, i also done the lnat last year

Yes I completely understand. A lot of students are saying that this year's LNAT has been really difficult. There's this girl on tiktok whose made a full document outlining a guide to LNAT mcq questions and it's been really helpful. Her name is Naomiyik. She took a gap year and resat her a levels and LNAT.

I have also heard about an increasing difficulty, but i also take it with a pinch of salt, the LNAT is always a difficult exam, and everyone academic enough to apply to the universities that require the LNAT understand this, and often exaggerate their experience despite it being like everyone elses experience. i think the highest i got on practice last year was 32, my actual exam was 18, and thats because i messed it up royally and the nerves got to me. everyones passages, practice, timing, reading speed, is different. So ruminating about how difficult other people found it seems pointless to me

Yeah that is very true. Everyone has different experiences with their revision methods. And I agree, comparing is useless and a waste of energy.

best thing to do is just remain optimistic, ive emailed the arbitio administration so hopefully i hear back soon

Yes! Positivity and confidence is key. Do tell me how your LNAT goes once you have completed it. Good luck!
