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 need to take the test if you are applying for 2022 entry (or deferred entry in 2023) to any of the following UK undergraduate law programmes (listed by university and UCAS code). (list per 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.
