Late Summer Assessments 19 August–6 September 2019

Late summer assessment (LSA) will be available in 2019 for all students who need to re-sit an exam or have been granted deferred assessment.

UCL's Education Committee has been working towards the introduction of late summer assessments to improve the student experience and better align UCL with the rest of the UK Higher Education Sector.  

The Late Summer Assessment period is your next opportunity for assessment after the main exam period and will be counted as a full attempt of reassessment. If you are unable to attend an examination or complete any assessment then you need to apply for a deferral under the Extenuating Circumstances regulations.
