You wont be to switch because you havent done the LNAT. You can reapply for next year entry but you have to take the LNAT for Bristol

The LNAT is in the admissions statement.

Much like Medicine, if you do not sit the entrance exam you will not be successful in applying to the course.

It doesn't matter if you are switching to the course. You are still applying to that course.

You have an offer for English which is unrelated. You do not meet the entry requirements for the Law programme at Bristol because you have not sat the LNAT. You will not be successful. Your only option is to wait, sit the LNAT and apply for next year's intake.

It is really that simple. If you don't sit the LNAT, you cannot apply in any form, as per their admissions statement: "LNAT: All applicants must take the Law National Admissions Test (known as LNAT)".

It says "All applicants must take it". Even those who take got rejected if you get a low score

No they wouldnt. LNAT is a big part of their admission into a law course

Why would they let you if you havent done the LNAT??? Plus, bristol law is competitive and they dont appear on clearing so their places they have will be full I assume so. Nottingham an LNAT uni as well appeared so clearing last year and they required the LNAT as well with A*AA and it was competitive that the places they need was already filled in the morning

Law is always oversubscribed. In 2016/17 there were 2,740 applicants with 428 people meeting their offer. In the Social Sciences and Law faculty the competition ratio (applications : places) is 8:1. They won't have spots open for you to transfer into during your first week at university.

Those kind of transfers happen mostly within faculties. For example I had people transfer to my previous course (Neuroscience) from Pharmacology, because the first year was basically exactly the same except for one unit. That is not the case for English to Law, they are different faculties.

To put it as simply (and perhaps bluntly, sorry) as possible: If you did not sit the LNAT, you will not get in to Law at Bristol under any circumstances.

You need to either continue on with English as that is your offer, and request a transfer after first year is finished (You will still need to sit the LNAT) but that is a risky strategy, they may not have a place for you and you end up using a year of Student Finance.

Or, you can not go to university this year, sit the LNAT once testing begins in September 2020 for 21/22 intake.
