Dear GLPD.Info.Rights,

When you say that the LNAT was introduced this year, do you mean that it was introduced for candidates applying for 2020 entry, or for 2019 entry?

Yours sincerely,

Dear John,

The response from our Head of Undergraduate Admissions was:

We have the data for this year (2019/0 - students joining us in September 2019) and will have it going forward (for as long as we continue to use the LNAT).

We don’t have anything prior to 2019/0 (i.e. 2018/9 or earlier).

Regards,
Rachael Maguire
