How do I approach the essay section?

As section B of the LNAT test, you have 40 minutes to answer one of three essay questions. It is important to note that even if you finish section A early, the remaining time will not be added to the 40 minutes. In addition to this, once your time limit is reached, your screen will immediately change allowing no time for last minute editing. Therefore, one of the most important aspects is time management and following this, planning.

To effectively use the given time, you have to plan how to use it. An example may be to spend five minutes reading through and choosing a question, another five minutes briefly planning your answerr, writing for 25 minutes and proof reading for five minutes at the end. This will not only give you a structure to adhere to, but also hopefully relax you as it allows you to have more control over the situation.

Examiners are mostly looking at how you structure essays rather than any knowledge and so I would caution against choosing a question simply because you are familiar with the subject. The questions provided should all be able to be answered without any prior knowledge. This supports the fact that universities are looking to see how you structure an argument and how you can persuade the reader to agree with you rather than the factual content.

Planning of the answer itself is necessary to prevent digression from relevant points throught the essay and wasting time. It does not have to be detailed yet it is extremely helpful to have written down what you will say in what part of the essay. This is not only a time saver but also ensures your argument flows and is coherent.

It is also important to leave time at the end to read through your essay and edit any grammatical errors or typos you may have made.
