  • I took the LNAT in its first year and it seems not much has changed: Pearson Vue are just as incompetent as ever!

    In my year I rang them a week before I was due to sit because I had heard nothing about special exam arrangements after telling them about my disability. I ended up having to miss my sitting and taking the exam on a later date because they did not have adequate (i.e. ANY) facilities that I had enquired about.

    I had little faith in this company then and I have even less now.

  • I paid 70 GBP to sit the LNAT (internationals pay 20 GBP more than the domestic fee). Pearson only had to do two thing. Facilitate the exam, and provide me with the results by the time outlined. They failed on the latter aspect. To top it off, they sent me the wrong score. I took the LNAT the first week in October, thus giving them more than enough time to get themselves together. I'll likely ask for a partial refund, even if its only 1-5 GBP. Its the principle here.

  • I too took the LNAT exam, and after anxiously waiting for my results, I was left incredibly disappointed on the 31st of January. I receive emails on my phone, so I was one of the fortunate individuals who did not have to keep refreshing their emails every two seconds. However, I was still left stressed, and rather angered at Pearson Vue's poor handling of the situation.

    I received my first email from Pearsons Vue on the 1st of Feb, but the results were incorrect. Today (the 2nd), I received a new set of results which are, to date, my official results.

    Pearson's Vue also lied and said that 'some candidates received their results slightly later' - I'll have you know that ALL candidates received their results later.

  • Pearson VUE are an absolute disgrace and should not be allowed to run the LNAT anymore.

  • Good people have payed good money for a service that Pearson Vue have not provided. I am one of those people, and I must say... to say they are so highly praising themselves makes this nothing more than an utter shambles. I will be expecting my full apology from Pearson Vue along with my LNAT Result.

    Believe me when I say, I shall never go Pearson Vue again.

  • I myself was affected and I have to say I am very disappointed by Pearson Vue. Is it really so difficult to send out right scores from a multiple choice test. I've received an e-mail at about 2 pm telling me my score was 18/30 and two hours later they told me I had a score 18/42. No explanation why the first mail was wrong just nothing.

    In my opinion a little note telling me that they've sent out the wrong information would have done it.

  • Pearson Vue have done a terrible job. I have applied to 2 LNAT universities and it is stupendously annoying that after £50 and half a day travelling to and from a test centre, we all have to wait an extra 2 days for Pearson Vue to send a simple email. I feel especially sorry for university applicants who have yet to recieve any offers, particularly in such an obviously competitive year. Not only were the results late, but many were incorrect (as the article states).

    You only need to look at how other entrance tests (such as the UKCAT) are administered to see that the LNAT system is flawed and poorly executed.

  • Personally, I think that after paying £50 towards a test which is necessary for some Universities when applying to law, a far better service needs to be provided.

  • I myself am extremely anxious as I still have not heard my result. I was on the telephone to them just now and was told that I had 'passed' with the 'minimum required' for universities. The mark I passed with was apparently 17.5.

    How you can get a half mark in a clear cut multiple choice question perplexes me. I shall be ringing again tomorrow and hopefully will receive the correct score!

    My worry now however is that universities I have applied to might not have the correct score either.

  • I was shocked to see Pearson VUE's feeble attempt at an apology on their website. I have not heard of a single person who received their results on time, and having caused this much anxiety and irritation to the majority of law applicants in the UK, I would have thought they would at least admit the full extent of their blunder.

    When you pay good money for a service, you expect better. In my opinion if they are neither capable of the appropriate administration or apologising when it goes wrong they should be relieved of the responsibility.

  • I took the LNAT this year and in fact find the sending of results largely useless. All of my university choices had replied by the time the result came out, I had sat the LNAT and applied in early October. It's not like you can re-sit the LNAT and it doesn't particularly matter if you think you did badly or well, it's whether your university does.

    The most important part of the whole LNAT is your essay anyway, where you should be differentiating yourself, and that's not formally marked. I would like to add my result came correctly, but to be honest, if I had been required to log into a website to check my result, I wouldn't have been bothered.

    You can't change them. You'll only ever use them in this process. Everyone has already applied by the time they receive their results and can't change their university choices. So relax. Just see what you're universities think, there is no point stressing out about this.
