About LNAT

The LNAT (National Admissions Test for Law) is an admissions aptitude test that was first adopted in 2004 by eight UK universities as an admissions requirement for prospective applicants seeking to apply for an undergraduate degree in law. The LNAT was instituted because the leading universities were unable to distinguish between an increasingly large pool of competitive potential candidates with very similar A-level grades or IB scores.

The LNAT was designed to effectively separate the cats from the pigeons, a test intended to enable university admission officers to select their undergraduate students more objectively, based on questions and essays which specifically measure a student’s ability to think critically and argue cogently in an essay.

At the TF Tutorial College, we have tutors who have sat and succeeded in the LNAT. Should you be interested in private tutoring for the LNAT then please contact us with a view to booking a preliminary introductory session.

It is worth noting that there are now nine participating law schools and hundreds of test centres worldwide, which implement the LNAT as a mandatory entry requirement:

  • University of Birmingham
  • University of Bristol
  • Durham University
  • University of Glasgow
  • King’s College London
  • SOAS, University of London
  • University of Nottingham
  • University of Oxford
