- The LNAT essay is not evaluated with the MCQs. It is passed on unchecked to the universities you have applied to. They use it according to their admissions policy.
- You will not get your LNAT score immediately after you sit for the test. It will be emailed to you at the email address you submitted during the LNAT registration process. According to the LNAT Consortium website, “Candidates taking the LNAT before 15 January 2018 will receive their results in early February 2018. Candidates taking the test after 15 January 2018 will receive their results in early July 2018.”
