Authorised Examination Centres
It is important that candidates should verify with the centre the correct time of their examinations. Students are responsible for confirming with the examination centres the exact examination venue, exact reporting time and exact examination starting times. Please note students are expected to travel to their nearest established examination centre stated on the list below.
You are required to observe all the instructions given to you by the
Invigilators or officers responsible for the conduct of the examination. You must comply with the instructions given in the rubric of the examination question paper. You
may not bring into the examination room any notes, paper or other
materials except those which have specifically been permitted in the
examination by the examiners. Cheating is an examination offence and may
lead to exclusion from all future examinations of the University.
Candidates sitting their examinations at a local centre may be charged a local fee in addition to the normal University fee for that examination. The centre is responsible for the collection of the local fee. The University takes no responsibility whatsoever either for the amount of the fee charged or the collection or refund of such fees. Details of the current fees may be obtained direct from the centre concerned.
Some examination centres can only accommodate a limited number of candidates. Students should confirm this with the examination centre directly.
As one of our students, we allow you more than one attempt at passing each exam. Please refer to the current UCL Exam Regulations for further details.
Each module is assessed by an MCQ exam. You are required to sit exams for all the basic modules together:
- Stroke, Epilepsy and Rehabilitation - Basic (CLNEG041)
- Neurodegenerative, Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases of the Nervous System - Basic (CLNEG037)
- Neurology and Neurosurgery - Basic (CLNEG036)
- Common Problems in Neurological Practice - Basic (CLNEG038)
You must achieve a pass mark in each module before you are allowed to sit any assessment for the advanced modules.
You will need to sit all the basic module MCQ exams in the same slot, either all four exams in one day or spread over two days (e.g. two exams on day one and two on day two).
Each MCQ exam is two hours in length.
You are allowed one resit attempt per module if you fail to achieve a pass mark in that module exam.
