The LNAT or National Admissions Test for Law, is an admissions aptitude test that was adopted in 2004 by eight UK university law programmes as an admissions requirement for home applicants. The test was established at the leading urgency of Oxford University as an answer to the problem facing universities trying
to select from an increasingly competitive pool with similarly high A-levels. With effect from its second year the LNAT is required for UK and overseas applicants alike. There are now nine participating law schools and hundreds of test centres worldwide.
Available upon request. Call us for details.

You must take the test in the UCAS year in which you are applying to university. You can only sit the test once in the cycle (September to June), and results cannot be carried over from one year to the next.
You need to take the test if you are applying for 2024 entry (or deferred entry in 2025) to any of the following UK undergraduate law programmes (listed by university and UCAS code).
Within 24 hours of finishing your test, Pearson VUE will make your test score and essay available to your chosen university or universities. They will see your score before you do.
Test results are emailed to candidates twice a year, with test dates determining the results date.
- Candidates taking the LNAT on or before 20 January 2022 will receive their results in early February 2022.
- Candidates taking the test after 20 January 2022 will receive their results in early August 2022.
- Note: No specific dates can be given.
- Candidates may only sit the LNAT once between 1 September 2021 and 30 June 2022 unless authorised to because of extenuating circumstances. If a candidate sits the test twice without authorisation, their later test sitting will be invalid.
