Late Summer Assessments for students who deferred 24 hour online examinations

1 July 2020

Students who deferred a 24 hour online exam this year can sit their exam during the Late Summer Assessment (LSA) period, 24 August–11 September 2020. Re-sit examinations will take place in 2021.

Using laptop

Late summer assessments (LSAs) will be held from 24 August–11 September 2020, for all students who have deferred one or more of their 24 hour online examinations this year. 

The examination timetable will be published on 28 July; you will receive an email to your UCL email account with your personal timetable when it is ready to view on Portico
Late Summer Assessment exams will be delivered in the same way as the 24 hour online exams in the recent exam period. Support for completing an online exam – including submission requirements, uploading handwritten answers, and access to a practice exam environment – is available from our guidance for students on taking exams through Moodle.
The deadlines for deferred coursework and other forms of assessment will be published by your department. 
If you are unable to complete a deferred examination or assessment due to illness or unexpected disruption, you will need to apply for a deferral under the Extenuating Circumstances regulations. 

Re-sit examinations, 2019–20

Postgraduate and undergraduate finalists who need to re-sit an examination will have that opportunity in the January re-sit examination period (11–21 January 2021).
Undergraduate continuing students (non-finalists) who have failed a 24 hour online exam will be allowed to progress to their next stage of study and will have the opportunity to take a re-sit during the main examination period in 2021.
