Withdrawal from Examination
You may withdraw your entry to the entire examination provided that you notify the Examinations Section in writing not less than seven days before the date of your first examination. If you wish to defer part of your examination (i.e to postpone some but not all of the elements for which you have registered) then you will require UCL approval by submission of the appropriate application form. If you should absent yourself without prior approval, then you will be deemed to have made an attempt at the examination.
You may withdraw your entry to an examination on academic grounds only with the approval of Departmental and Faculty Tutors. This withdrawal must be made using the official form (Withdrawal from Examination on Academic Grounds) and Faculty approval must have been obtained by the end of the first week of the third term. If you should absent yourself without prior approval, then you will be marked absent and deemed to have made an attempt at the examination. Affiliate students must complete all assessments in each course for which they are enrolled. The only exception will be for a candidate who wishes to withdraw his/her entry on medical grounds or following a bereavement (provided s/he has not entered the examination hall), where an 'Exceptional Withdrawal from Examinations' form should be completed.
Further conditions about withdrawal from examinations are laid down in the UCL Regulations which are available for consultation in the Registry.
