2020-21 results and awards to be published from Thursday 8 July

27 May 2021

On Thursday 8 July, you will receive your exams and assessments results by email to your UCL email account if you undertook assessment in 2020-21.

Student at a desk

Results emails will be sent out in batches throughout the day. Your email may arrive earlier or later than other students in your cohort as it is not possible to send a single communication to all 35,000 students receiving results this year. These emails can be viewed on mobile devices. 

Results will also be available in Portico from 9 July and confirmed in a Statement of Awards on Portico from 12 July. 

Note: A small number of postgraduate taught students on non-standard programmes (e.g. LLM, PGCE) will receive results later. Departments will be advised to contact those students affected.  

Deferrals from previous years 

Deferral or re-sit results for modules first attended in a previous academic year will be available for you to view on Portico the week after the results emails are released. 

Please contact your department if you have any queries about deferral results prior to their release date. 

Late Summer Assessment (LSA) 

If you have failed or deferred exams or assessments for 2020–21 modules, this information will be detailed in your results email. The LSA exam period will take place from 16 August to 3 September for students that have deferred one or more of their assessments.  

If you are taking centrally managed exams in the LSA period, you will receive your exam timetable by email on 19 July. 

LSA will take place from 16 August to 3 September. Your timetable will be published on 19 July. 

If you are submitting coursework or sitting departmentally managed assessments in the LSA period, your department will let you know how and when you need to do this. 

Certificate and transcripts 

Your degree documents will be posted to your home address within three months from the release of your results – please make sure that your home address details are up to date on Portico
