The law schools of eight prestigious English universities plan to make prospective undergraduates sit a new admissions test from this autumn.
It will help them discern "intellectual potential" among the large numbers of well-qualified applicants.
They say the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) will be designed to be used alongside GCSEs, A-levels and "other existing selection mechanisms".
The two-hour test will involve multiple choice questions and a short essay.

- University College London.
There are now MCQ solutions in place for Medicine and Law. Expect more such tests to follow. Easy to set and mark over an internet connection. International research to support question styles. Demonstrably objective. And meet the need where A levels are now failing.
