Results for candidates who sit the LAT 2020 will be available between mid to late November 2020. A notification email will sent to all candidates who sat the test regarding the release of results. The email includes information about how to retrieve your results statement online via your account.
Your results statement will provide a single reporting score in the range of 0-100, and a percentile band indicating how you have performed relative to all other candidates who sat the LAT in 2020. There are no pass or fail scores.
For security purposes, results will not be sent by email or fax, nor will details be given over the phone. This is to protect candidate confidentiality.
Candidates will not be provided with any additional information on the scoring process. All such information remains the property of ACER and UNSW. A candidate has no right to examination of ACER’s scoring processes and methodologies.
Next steps in your application to UNSW Law
There is no pass or fail mark for the LAT. UNSW Sydney will consider your LAT results and your academic results (ATAR or equivalent) in the selection process. The ATAR or equivalent will be combined with the LAT result on a sliding scale so that those with a very high ATAR or equivalent require a lower LAT score and those with a lower ATAR or equivalent require a higher LAT score. To be considered for entry to Law at UNSW Sydney in 2021 you must apply via UAC and list UNSW Law as a preference. Visit: uac.edu.au/undergraduate/apply
Please note: If you have not received the results notification email, firstly, check your junk mail folder as the email may have been blocked by your email provider. Please add the LAT email address firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts list. Some candidates may have their email addresses recorded incorrectly in ACER's database. If you require the email to be sent again please email your request to the LAT office, and provide your full name, email address and date of birth.
What if I also sat the LAT in 2019 and got a higher score?
LAT scores are valid for two years. If you sat the LAT in 2019, and sit again in 2020, UNSW Law will use your higher LAT score in the selection process.
When you submit your application to UAC, you should use your LAT identification number for the LAT 2020. You will only be able to enter one LAT ID number and one result in the UAC system, regardless of whether you have sat the test twice.
Note: The LAT identification number for the LAT 2020 is an 8-digit number beginning with 2. To access your LAT results and identification number(s), you can login to your online candidate account to view your previous test registrations and results statements.
