How to register for the LNAT

You need to register for the test by 15 September 2024.

For your LNAT results to be sent directly to us, you must indicate that you plan to apply to the University of Cambridge as part of the LNAT registration process.

The assessment can be taken at any LNAT test centre. There are over 500 test centres around the world with 150 in the UK.

You may take the test on any day when there is availability at your chosen test centre, so long as it is before the relevant deadline.

The earlier you book, the more chance you have of securing a sitting on the day of your choice.

We strongly advised to begin making arrangements as soon as possible. A delay in booking may mean you have to travel further to secure a place at an available LNAT location before the deadline.

Find out how to register on the LNAT website.
