    Hi guys!

    I'm going to study law at uni, and I'd like to apply to KCL.
    My problem is that I still haven't done my lnat, but want to send my app off as soon as I can, so is it possible to send my ucas off, and then sit the LNAT, or do I need to sit the test first?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can send it off, then sit the test :yep:

    You just add your UCAS number onto the Pearson VUE profile bit, and it gets added on once you've sat it.

    A more interesting question is, do you have to append the fact that you're sitting the LNAT to your UCAS? As I think it may put off non-LNAT unis from accepting you :holmes:

    Thanks for such a quick reply.

    I'm not sure I hope not!
    All these admissions people and their little moody anti/pro LNAT ways are so difficult!

    That has definitely got me thinking now!
    I'm hoping Manchester(they don't require LNAT) will accept me if KCL don't, but now that you've mentioned their decision might be affected by me doing LNAT, I'll be having second thoughts.. lol

    I don't understand why a non-LNAT uni's decision on whether or not to make an offer to you would be affected by the fact that you are taking LNAT. There are lots of unis which don't think LNAT is useful in choosing between candidates, and so are anti it in that sense, but I can't imagine they would let it prejudice their decision on an individual candidate.
    Best of luck

    They probably wouldn't.

    But I still wouldn't want to risk it.

    Putting down that you're taking the LNAT demonstrates that you're applying to a high calibre of university anyway.

    Ah fair enough. I was approaching it on the basis that those are the sorts of candidates other unis generally want too. Difficult to know whether it actually has to go on the UCAS form, doesn't really seem like a qualification!

    Obviously, you're right.

    It's just I wouldn't want to be able to blame any rejections on anything other than my application, you know?

    And it doesn't have to.

    It's an entrance exam, not a qualification really, seeing as it doesn't stay with you after one year.

    More experienced than well organised!

    I'm reapplying, so I don't want to make any rookie mistakes.

    Thank you, and am I right in thinking you're at Oxford studying Law?

    What do you mean your personal statement - if you do that then they obviously will know then, but i don't think they will hold it against you.

    No, you can add it under "qualifications."

    I'm not 100% sure, but the teacher at my school who deals with such things told me to put it on to make sure it was clear I was taking it. She didn't mention anything about it affecting the opinions of non-LNAT unis, but then again, she does help everyone so might not have much subject specific knowledge.
