Prospective law students failing

11 February 2005

A new admission test used by eight universities to distinguish between candidates for law courses has produced “poor quality” work, according to a study.
The National Admissions Test for Law, introduced by universities who have oversubscribed law courses, including Oxford, Cambridge, Nottingham and Bristol, involves multiple-choice and essay questions. Research of 4,345 candidates by Bristol University found that, out of a maximum score of 24, the average score was 13.16 and the lowest score was 3.
The researchers said admission tutors wanted to see schools “return the construction of argument” to their courses in the sixth form.
