LNAT Practice Tips

We hope you enjoy our free LNAT practice tips.

Critical reasoning tests, such as the LNAT, ask you to identify assumptions, inferences and the points made within “overall” arguments.


The LNAT is not designed to assess any knowledge of laws or any legal ability.

You need to answer 42 questions. You will be expected to interpret shades of meaning. Also, the “grey” areas within the arguments outlined in 12 passages.

The purpose of a critical verbal reasoning test is to assess reasoning abilities when applied to a complex passage of text. You also need to analyse the different points within the passage.

LNAT Practice 

The LNAT is used as part of the selection process for taking a Masters law degree. In a similar fashion to how American Law Schools use the LSAT and the GMAT. Both also contain critical thinking tests.

There’s also useful advice on the official LNAT practice site.

Top Tips for LNAT Practice

Read through each passage.Make a mental note of those statements that are facts. Plus, those “weaker” statements which only express an opinion.

Any verbal reasoning test requires careful reading of both the passage and each question. Critical verbal reasoning tests require even more careful reading!

Look out for key words in the questions and ensure that you pick up on any questions that are phrased negatively. For example, the critical reasoning item, All of the following are assumptions made by the author, except for which one?

Sometimes a question will highlight particular words in bold text. Here you need to ensure that this emphasis is recognized by your answer.
