However, for some Overseas applicants dispensations may be granted on an individual basis only where there is no LNAT centre in the candidate's country or no centre within a reasonable distance from the applicant's residence. Please note, LNAT results will not be carried over from one year to the next., therefore, the LNAT must be taken between 1st September and 31st December in the admissions cycle you are submitting your application.
