Examination Timetable 2017 Late Summer Assessment

STATUS: Friday 14 July 2017

The draft examination timetable is currently with departments for review.  We endeavour to publish the timetable on Friday 21 July - this will be sent to you by email.  You will also be able to log onto Portico to view your timetable.

A number of improvements have been made to the exam timetable process in response to student feedback, including:

  • · Digital issue of candidate numbers: all students have already received their unique candidate number by email (2017 is the first year that they have been issued digitally).  A second email reminding you of your candidate number will be sent in the week of 6 March 2017.
  • · Personalised exam timetable by email: instead of logging on to Portico to see your exam timetable, as soon as the timetable is published each student will receive an email with your personal exam timetable
  • · Opportunity for late-summer resits: UCL is expanding the late-summer resit pilot. This year 10% of programmes across all faculties will have the opportunity to resit exams in September 2017.

Your feedback is helping to drive improvement across UCL and we encourage you to share your views and help us identify our priorities. You can find out more about changes that are taking place at UCL and how to give your feedback on the You Shape UCL website.

Academic Progress and Examinations

If you fail in University or UCL examinations taken as part of your programme of study, or are reported to have persistently neglected your coursework, or have not attended lectures/seminars/tutorials, etc, to the full satisfaction of your teachers, your case will be reviewed by your Faculty Tutor. In consultation with the Heads and Tutors of the Departments concerned, your Faculty Tutor will decide what action will be taken.

In these circumstances you may be allowed to continue your programme of study without interruption, subject, if thought fit, to satisfying a further academic test; or you may be readmitted on a probationary basis for a term at a time; or you may be required to suspend your programme of study for a period of up to one session and may be readmitted after satisfactorily passing an academic test; or you may be refused readmission. You are expected to inform your Departmental or Programme Tutor about non-academic circumstances which have affected your study and academic progress and these will be considered before a final decision is made.

If you wish to appeal against a decision to refuse you readmission to UCL for academic reasons, you should first consult your Departmental or Programme Tutor or Personal Tutor or Graduate Tutor. Where you are unable to resolve your difficulties by consultation with a Tutor or Graduate Tutor, you should see your Faculty Tutor (or for laws students the Sub-Dean) who will be able to explain the procedures for review of, and appeal against, decisions relating to students' progress.
