Pearson VUE, who run the LNAT, marks candidates’ multiple choice answers by computer and a mark out of 42 is created.

This is known as an LNAT score. Candidates’ essays are not marked but stored by the computer for university admissions tutors to read. Following completion of the test, Pearson VUE will supply the candidate’s LNAT score and essay directly to those LNAT-participating universities to which the candidate has applied.

The universities get the results in good time for their applications process and before the results are sent to the candidates. Each university’s admissions tutors will then refer to the candidates’ score as part of their application.

The candidate’s LNAT score and the essays will be used by each university in the way that best suits its own admissions system. The LNAT does not replace A levels or their global equivalent but is used in conjunction with formal qualifications, the information on the UCAS or other application form, the candidate’s personal statement and, in some cases, performance at interview.

There is no fixed weight to either A level results (or their global equivalents) or the LNAT and different LNAT-participating universities will utilise the LNAT in different ways. The use of LNAT essays varies and is dependant on each participating university’s admissions policy. Some universities may use it, for example, as the basis for interview questions.

Others may compare it with the personal statement and school/college report on UCAS forms, or use it as a means of distinguishing between borderline candidates. LNAT results are emailed to candidates twice a year, with test dates determining the results date. Candidates taking the LNAT before 15 January 2012 will receive their results in early February 2012.

Candidates taking the test after 15 January 2012 will receive their results in early July 2012.  Candidates may only sit the LNAT once between 1 September 2011 and 30 June 2012. If a candidate sits the test twice, their later test sitting will be invalid.
