Script Collection & Examinations Base Room

The Examinations Team is re-locating to 3 Gower Place from Monday 18th February the main office will be located on the 2nd Floor.

Script Collection 10:30 – 17:30 3rd Floor Gower Place

The delivery of examination scripts from the ExCeL will arrive late each evening, therefore this will mean the exams team will need to unpack over 200 boxes each morning in readiness for script collection. If an examiner wishes to collect their scripts from the ExCeL on the day of their exam please email examinations@ucl.ac.uk so that we can ensure that the scripts do not get boxed up and returned to Campus. To ensure that we are aware of this please advise us at least the day before the date of the exam.

Please cite all modules codes in the email notification and ensure that colleagues bring UCL ID with them – we will not be able to release any scripts without sufficient ID

Examination Venues & ExCeL Seating Zones

We have now published a student information video to assist with logistics for the ExCeL.

You may view the video in the following link:


Please encourage your students to view.

We have also published seating Zones for weeks 1 – 3 of the examination period – we will update this once week 2 has passed – you can view the seating Zones information on our website:


Examination Adjustments

The deadline for the receipt of applications from students applying for examination adjustments for the Main Examination period has now passed.

Late Applications will only be considered if the student has suffered from a sudden illness of accidental injury. Applications must be received by Student Support and Wellbeing no later than 7 calendar days before the examination. If applications are received after this deadline, then the student will need to apply for a deferral to the next examination period under the extenuating circumstances regulations.

Examination Adjustment Rooms

We are running individual examination adjustment rooms for the morning and afternoon sessions of each exam day.

This means that a student taking an exam in the morning and the afternoon will be in a different examination venue.

Please refer to the venues guide on our website for a full listing of venues: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/students/exams-and-assessments/exams/timetables-and-venues

Late entry in examination hall 

Students arriving less than 45 minutes late will be permitted entry into the examination hall but will forfeit any time already elapsed.

Students who arrive more than 45 minutes late will not be allowed entry into the exam hall and will NOT be able to take their exam in the department.

If late arrival is due to sickness or other valid Extenuating Circumstances students should submit an EC form in the usual way.
