The LNAT is commonly referred to as “the test you cannot revise for” – well you can! Our LNAT Mock Test guide provides you with 2 full LNAT mock exams that will allow you to familiarise yourself with the LNAT and allow you to take the questions which you may face in your real assessment.
Every question in this workbook contains a detailed breakdown so you can fully prepare for your LNAT.
WHAT IS THE LNAT?
The Law National Admissions Test (LNAT) is an extremely tough assessment, which helps universities to determine the candidates who are the best fit for their law programme.
The LNAT is really difficult to revise for, because it requires the candidate to have an in-depth understanding of various sociological issues. The questions are designed to test you on skill which you’ll need to work within the legal sector. This means that the LNAT is not a test of a candidate’s knowledge, but of their aptitude and skill.
There are two different sections to the LNAT examination:
The first stage of the LNAT is the multiple choice section. This is computer based, and will require candidates to answer 42 questions based on 12 passages. The passages will contain 3 or 4 questions, with 4 options to choose from each question. The test will take 1 hour and 35 minutes to complete.
There are three different types of question that you can expect to answer during the multiple choice section of your LNAT examination:
-Argument questions. The majority of the passages that you encounter will take the form of an argument, on the part of the speaker(s). Part of the difficulty of the LNAT is to be able to recognise what the speakers are trying to argue, and their position/opinion on the subject at hand. You should expect to encounter argument questions similar to, ‘What is the main argument that the speaker is trying to make?’
-Literary questions.Literary style questions focus on meaning and how well the author demonstrates their point. You’ll be asked the meaning of different words or phrases, and tested on why the speaker uses certain terms in their argument/for what reason. You should expect to encounter literary questions similar to, ‘Which of the following terms is used to demonstrate…’
-Analytical questions.Analytical questions are focused on interpretation and the wider framework in which arguments are being made. Often, you’ll be asked to look at what kind of things are suggested or implied by the speaker, and asked to select which answer option best represents the speaker’s views. You should expect to encounter analytical questions similar to, ‘Which of the following is implied, but not stated by the author?’
The second section of the LNAT is the essay section. In this section, you will need to answer one question out of a possible three. You should construct an essay based answer of no longer than 750 words, and will have 40 minutes to complete this part of the assessment. In order to pass the essay section, candidates will need to construct a good quality argument, which is written in a persuasive and detailed manner.
While candidates will not be expected to have a complete understanding of the essay topics which appear in the examination, you will be expected to create a sustained argument based on what you do know, and this should include explanations, assumptions and analysis.
When taking this part of the exam, it’s important that you choose a question where you feel comfortable enough to write 600 + words on the subject, in an analytical manner. You can prepare for this by keeping yourself informed on current affairs. This will ensure that you aren’t caught out by unexpected questions.
LAW NATIONAL ADMISSIONS TEST - TOP TIPS
- You have 42 questions to answer in the time frame of 1 hour and 35 minutes. You need to make sure to distribute your time wisely;
- Aim for an equal amount of time per question. You will find some questions easier than others. Finding the right balance of timing is crucial;
- Reading the passage is extremely important. Read the passage carefully in order to gain a complete understanding of the concepts, tone of voice, position that the author holds, the argument being made, etc;
- You will receive a mark for each correct answer, no marks are deducted for incorrect answers. So, if you really are struggling to work out the correct answer, eliminate the answers that you know to be incorrect, and take a guess out of the remaining answers;
- You can skip a multiple-choice question and come back to it by marking them for ‘review’. You will need to go back to the question before you finish the multiple choice section. You will not be able to go back to the multiple choice questions once you begin the essay section.
- Planning is key in this exercise. Before you start your essay, make sure you work through a mental or physical structure of how you will lay out your answer. This will make writing the essay so much easier, instead of just winging the essay off the top of your head.
- Keep your essay between 500-600 words. Remember that quantity does not = quality.
- Don’t sit on the fence. The assessors want you to pick one side of the argument. You can acknowledge opposing arguments to your own, but only do this to disprove or reinforce your own side of the argument.
- Educated assumptions work just as well as facts. Provided you back your assumptions up with logic and reasoning, your essay will still score highly.
