About the LNAT
The National Admissions Test for Law, or LNAT, is a test run by a consortium of U.K. universities (LNAT Consortium Ltd) in partnership with Pearson VUE. The test helps universities to select applicants who want to join their undergraduate law programmes. School-level qualifications, such as A-levels and their global equivalents, still remain central to the selection process. If you are applying to law school at the U.K. universities listed below, you will be required to take the LNAT:
- University of Birmingham
- University of Bristol
- Durham University
- University of Glasgow
- King’s College London

More details on whether you need the test are available on the LNAT website along with the specific course codes.

When should you take the LNAT?
For UK Law schools, 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.
For local law programmes you will be required to take the LNAT before the application deadline (15 July 2017)
LNAT Test Format
The LNAT test is comprised of two sections:
Comprehension (95 minutes, 42 MCQs)
This section consists of 12 argumentative passages with 3 or 4 multiple-choice questions on each.Questions are based on contents of the passage provided and no specific prior knowledge is required.Questions are designed to test powers of comprehension, interpretation, analysis, synthesis, induction, and deduction.
Essay Writing (40 minutes)
The purpose is to test the ability of the candidate to argue economically to a conclusion and demonstrate a good command of written English. While the essay is not graded, it is passed unmarked to the LNAT-participating law schools to which you are applying.
