Candidates will be asked to leave any personal items in the lockers beside the seating area and are not allowed to take anything into the test room, e.g. bags, papers, books, pens, sweets, drinks.
To sit the test, candidates will be asked to sit at a numbered desk with a computer terminal (plus a portable whiteboard and pen for note-making). Candidates with special access requirements should notify LNAT in advance of booking their test following the instructions here.
There is an invigilation desk in the testing room. Computers within the test room will only run the LNAT programme. They have no other functionality.
Most test centres have keyboards with the locally prevailing keyboard layout. However, some test centres deliver most of their exams in English and so have US keyboards with US settings. If you are testing outside the UK and are concerned about having to use either a local keyboard or a US keyboard please contact the test centre to check what keyboard configuration they are using.
If you want to know what a test centre looks like you can take a virtual test centre tour on the Pearson VUE website at http://www.pearsonvue.com/ppc/.
There are over 500 LNAT test centres around the world with 150 in the UK, many in high street locations. New test centres are becoming available all the time. Keep an eye on this page for updates.
Test centres opening on 1 September 2012
All our test centres are scheduled to open for 2012-13 LNAT testing on 1 September 2012. To browse the directory of current test centres worldwide, complete with addresses and directions, use our live test centre locator.
Test centres temporarily closed
Occasionally some of our test centres may be temporarily closed for repairs, upgrades, or security checks. While closed they cannot be booked and do not appear on the live test centre locator.
There are currently no notified closures.
Countries with no test centres
Regrettably, some countries have no test centres and are not expected to have them during 2012-13. If you do not find your country listed in the test centre locator or in the list of test centres scheduled to open soon, please contact the LNAT Administrator who will check the position. If it is confirmed that there is no test centre that you can reasonably travel to, you should apply for exemption to the LNAT-participating universities to which you are applying. They will consider exempting you from the LNAT. Each LNAT-participating university makes this decision for itself on a case-by-case basis. So if you are applying to several LNAT-participating universities, you will have to apply for several LNAT exemptions. For further information on exemptions
