LNAT, or the Law National Aptitude Test, is an exam used by numerous law schools in the United Kingdom as an admissions requirement. It tests several skills that are essential to succeed in law. Your selected university will use your LNAT score, along with your UCAS application, to determine whether they should offer you a place.
LNAT is designed to test a range of skills, including verbal reasoning, ability to understand and interpret information, inductive and deductive reasoning as well as your ability to analyse information and draw conclusions.
LNAT results are very important to English universities. And a good LNAT score is an essential component of your application. Although the exam does not test your knowledge on any particular subject, it will assess your critical reasoning skills under time pressure.
The Multiple Choice Test consists of 12 text passages, each with 3 or 4 multiple choice questions (42 questions in total). This part of LNAT tests your ability to understand written text and carefully analyse and interpret the information provided. Your total score will be submitted to the universities shortly after you finish the exam.
The Essay Writing Exercise requires you to write an essay on one of three suggested topics. It tests your ability to construct a logical, well-reasoned and persuasive argument, as well as your ability to draw conclusions. There is no official marking scheme – each university can read and assess the essays as they see fit.
Verbal reasoning skills allow you to comprehend and analyse concepts and ideas expressed through words. In order to succeed in LNAT you will have to demonstrate those by being able to extract the meaning from complex and informative texts.
Inductive reasoning is the process of making generalisations on the basis of small observations, whereas deductive reasoning is the process of predicting what the observations will be on the basis of a general theory/statement. The LNAT requires you to skilfully and interchangeably apply both types of reasoning.
This skill allows you to read a passage with full comprehension of the information provided. It is important not to over-interpret what is written (by reading more into it than what the author actually says), and not to omit any important words - which may slightly alter the meaning of the whole passage. This can be particularly difficult when you have a limited amount of time.
You are able to analyse information when you can disseminate its meaning, assess its relevance and provide counteracting arguments. Being able to break down a complex argument into smaller parts allows you to carefully analyse each of them and easily spot any logical fallacies.
The best way to increase your LNAT score is to practise. By getting access to our learning platform (which closely resembles the actual examination software) you will be able to take a number of mock LNAT exams, testing and improving your abilities to react under pressure.

It was great to practise LNAT so many times before the actual exam. You get to see all types of questions in the practice test before you actually face them in LNAT. I feel that it really gave me the confidence to take the exam.
My results improved significantly after taking several tests. The platform is easy to use and it is very similar to the actual test. The explanations provided to each question helped me quickly understand my mistakes.
LNAT PRACTICE platform is great! Doing the mock exams really helped me improve my skills. I was positively surprised how well I scored at the end.
