The LNAT helps UK universities select appropriate applicants who will succeed at their undergraduate law courses. It doesn’t test any specific knowledge of the subject, instead, it tests intellectual abilities such as reasoning skills. The test is divided into two parts – Multiple choice questions (MCQ) testing comprehension and writing an essay which tests critical thinking skills. The university decides whether you are suitable for studying law based on your LNAT results and your UCAS application that has your formal qualifications (A-levels or IB).
