The key dates for the 2022/23 LNAT test are:
To guarantee that your UCAS application for Oxford or Cambridge University is considered, you must book your LNAT by September 15th and sit the test before or on the UCAS deadline of October 15th 2022.
You must sit the LNAT test before or on December 31st 2022 if you’re applying to LSE.
For all other LNAT universities, you must register and book your test before January 20th and sit it before January 25th 2023.
The LNAT cost varies depending on which country you live in. The fee for the LNAT at UK and EU test centres is £75. For test centres outside of the UK and the EU, the LNAT cost is £120. If you are struggling to pay for the exam, you could apply for an LNAT bursary. However, you must apply for the bursary before booking the LNAT.
If you are a UK or EU student in receipt of certain state benefits, the LNAT test fee will be waived. If you don’t have access to a major credit or Visa debit card, you can apply for an LNAT voucher, which will enable your exam booking to be processed online.
You can send a cheque, make a bank transfer or pay by cash for a voucher. You can then use the voucher number online at the time of registration.
You must book the LNAT in advance via the Pearson VUE website. All you need to do is create an account, book and pay.
If you have any special requirements, you should register for the LNAT and then complete an Examination Access Requirements (EAR) form online. Once you have done this, you will need to send professional evidence of any special requirements to the EAR department such as dyslexia diagnosis or a doctor’s note for a broken arm. LNAT will then contact you to confirm your booking.
You are able to take the test between September 1st 2022 and January 25th 2023. However, applicants to Oxford and Cambridge will need to have completed the test before the UCAS deadline (October 15th 2022). For candidates applying to LSE, you should complete the LNAT on or before December 31st 2022.
If you require access arrangements for your LNAT exam, for example additional time, you still need to create an LNAT login online via the Pearson VUE website as normal, but you will need to apply for Examination Access Arrangements by submitting an online form with supporting evidence. You can find out more about this on the LNAT website.
If they can’t meet your Examination Access Requirements, the LNAT Consortium will help you contact your LNAT universities and request them to exempt you from taking the test. For example, if you’re admitted to hospital you won’t be able to sit the exam because it has to be taken in a secure test centre.
Please note that the LNAT Consortium can’t grant an exemption on behalf of LNAT universities; you will need to ask each university and the decision is made at their discretion.
There are over 500 LNAT test centres in the world, 150 of which are in the UK. Test centres are usually based in high street locations and new test centres are being added to the directory all the time.
If, for any reason, you think you won’t be able to make your test date at your selected test centre, you can reschedule your booking without additional cost until noon (UK) two days before the date you are due to take your LNAT.
After this point, if you need to cancel or are unable to take the test for any reason (including, for example, not bringing the correct documentation to your test centre or family emergencies), you will have to pay to book another test. It’s important that LNAT bursary candidates keep in mind that they won’t be eligible for another bursary in this situation.
You may be forced to pay to reschedule if you turn up to the LNAT more than 15 minutes late, so make sure to plan your journey to the test centre in advance and leave yourself lots of extra time. After 15 minutes, it is at the discretion of the staff at your test centre whether it would be too disruptive for you to join the other test takers.
