What Does The LNAT Involve?

The LNAT is a 2¼ hour test in two sections. 

Section A consists of 42 multiple choice questions, based on 12 argumentative passages, with 3 or 4 multiple choice questions on each. Candidates are given 95 minutes to answer all of the questions. Candidates can review their answers at any time during the 95 minutes, but cannot return to the multiple choice section once they begin Section B. 

For Section B, candidates have 40 minutes to answer one of three essay questions on a range of subjects and demonstrate their ability to argue economically to a conclusion with a good command of written English.
