University of Birmingham use of LNAT
The University of Birmingham has taken the decision to withdraw from the LNAT Consortium and remove the LNAT admissions test from its formal entry requirements for students starting in September 2017 and beyond. The University is committed to using the LNAT in the current admissions round, as advertised, but the test will not be used thereafter. Applicants applying for entry in 2016 (or deferred entry in 2017) will therefore be required to take the test, but applicants in subsequent years will not.
Following a review of our admissions processes, the decision has been taken to phase out the use of the test in order to focus attention on academic performance and the demonstration of skills relevant to the programme through the personal statement and teacher references.
