How to structure and answer my LNAT essay

The first step before starting your essay is to understand what exactly the question is asking. Does the examiner want you to pick a side or present a detailled analysis of the pros and cons of a particular concept. For example, does the question want you to explain whether you or for or against protecting the idea of anonymity for those awaiting trial, or does the question seek you to discuss the fact that people awaiting trial sometimes have their identity protected from the public. Check for keywords like 'analyse', 'explain' and 'assess'. Remember that in both cases, you still have to assess both sides of the arguments. Also, try to limit the number of arguments per side to a few (maximum 3 or 4), with more arguments for the side you're arguing for.

It may come in handy to write down the key points for each argument on the whiteboard you will be provided with. Try to write all the points down as they come to you, and aim to structure your argument in a quick and summarised format (try to not spend more than 3-5 minutes on this, depending on how quickly you type.) Also, try and pick a question you're confident enough to answer, or even passionate about, as it will be much easier for you to answer and may provide an intelligent essay. Try to keep up with major world events, commercial awareness and ethical issues so as to be able to provide objective and rich answers, such as with statistics, quotes and examples to back your ideas up (if possible.)

The essay format isn't too difficult, start with a brief but detailled heading, stating your stand on the essay (if need be) and what the essay is about. The next two paragraphs should be about your arguments or your analysis, and try to provide counter-arguments, even for those you agree with.  End with a concluding paragraph tying up all the knots, and remember to stay within the word count. Try going over your work if you have enough time
