Degree: Jurisprudence (Bachelors) - Oxford, Brasenose College University
Hello, my name is Caroline and I'm a law nerd. I graduated from the University of Oxford with a First at undergraduate in 2015 and with a Distinction on the taught masters the BCL this year. To get into Bar school this year I had to take an admissions test so I can remember freshly what goes through an applicant's mind and hope I can make the process calmer and even enjoyable for you!
Choosing to study a vocational degree, particularly when you have not studied the subject at school, can be daunting. I took a risk leaving traditional subjects behind but was delighted to find law at degree level to combine politics, philosophy, the logic of maths and plenty of room to play with words.
Despite long reading lists, law left plenty of room to get involved with college and university life. In addition to sports, music, mooting (debating for lawyers) and various law societies, over four years at Oxford I have loved getting involved in tutoring around the world, university interviews and admissions tests and open days. Every year the questions and concerns are the same and it is rewarding to be able to provide a sense of perspective and a game plan.
I am enthusiasitc, encouraging and know what Universities are looking for. Building on your strengths and natural abilities, I hope that you will leave our sessions more confident and relaxed about the test or interview ahead.

The multiple choice section of the LNAT is a verbal reasoning and critical thinking marathon (95 minutes long). The average score in most years is below 50%. To prepare your brain for this intense period of comprehension and concentration, I would recommend doing all of your LNAT preparation internet/phone/distraction free. Many people are out of the habit of concentrating for 95 minutes straight on one task, particularly on a screen. So, turn of your internet, put your phone on flight mode and follow these 5 steps to success:
1. Try one of the official practice tests at http://www.lnat.ac.uk/how-to-prepare/practice-test/ to see where you stand. Are there any sections of the test that went particularly well and can be set aside for a time, and are there any which require more immediate attention?
2. AQA Critial Thinking textbooks are a good place to begin learning more about arguments and reasoning. Pay particular attention to areas which your practice test identified as warranting more time.
3. Read newspaper editorials and practice identifying features you have learned about.
4. Using questions from similar tests (such as the BCAT or AS level critical thinking or the TSA admissions test), try smaller groups of questions.
5. Try another full practice test.
Practice really makes perfect. Particularly when you will progress straight into the 40 minute essay, but that's another topic for tutorial!see more
