When Should I Register and Sit For the Test?

The LNAT begins its testing cycle late in the year (around September) and ends it sometime in the middle of the following year (around July). It can be taken only once per cycle — any additional sittings will be automatically invalidated — and its results are valid only within that academic year.

This means if you are applying to UCAS in 2021-2022, you must also take the LNAT during the 2021-2022 testing cycle, and should only be registering for a test date late in 2021, from September onwards. If you take the LNAT in the earlier half of the calendar year before the summer holidays, your result will not be downloaded by the universities and you will have to take the LNAT again at the correct time.

The LNAT test can be taken on any day that there is an appointment slot free at the test centre you have chosen. However, you do also need to ensure that you sit for the test before your application deadlines. As such, it is important that you register for the test early, so as to give yourself a higher chance of getting an appointment on the day of your choice, and do not have to worry about not having available test dates before your application deadline. Do note that Oxford tends to set their deadline fairly early (around October), so applicants to Oxford must plan to sit for the LNAT before then. For most other UCAS applications, your deadline will be sometime in January of the next year.

For Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) specifically, because their applications close only in the middle of the year in July, applicants for the 2022 intake can take the LNAT between 1 September 2020 and 31 July 2021.

When Will Results Be Released?

Starting on 21 October, the first batch of LNAT scores (tests taken between 1 September to 20 October) are released to the universities to download. After that date, within 24 hours of finishing your LNAT, Pearson VUE will make your LNAT score and essay available for download by your chosen university or universities. They will see your score before you do. The universities download your result and essay automatically using the UCAS personal identifier number (ten digits) supplied by you at the time of registration. As such, please ensure that you enter all information accurately.

LNAT results are emailed to candidates twice a year, with test dates determining the results date. Candidates taking the LNAT on or before 20 January will receive their results in mid February, while candidates taking the test after 20 January will receive their results in mid August.
