Late Summer Assessments

24 July 2023

Arrangements for LSA August-September 2023

The centrally managed Late Summer Assessments will run from 21 August to 8 September.    

Examination Timetable

The central assessment timetable will be sent to students via email on 24 July. Please note that students will NOT be able to access this through Portico.  

Students will be given information on how to access their timetable on-line and add it to their calendars should they wish to do so.  This information can also be found at: Exam Timetables.    

We anticipate that students will be able to view which exams they have on AssessmentUCL from 16 August onwards.  After this date, they should check very carefully and let us know immediately if any appears to be missing.     

AssessmentUCL Practice Exam    

All students have been invited to take part in a practice exam to allow them to familiarise themselves with the AssessmentUCL platform in advance of their examinations.  They should be encouraged to complete the practice exam at least once, using the same device and software that they plan to use during their exams.  Further information can be found at the practice exam section of our exam pages.    

It is particularly important that students who will be expected to complete hand-written work practise converting work into a pdf file in advance, as this could help to avert any issues on the day.  

WiFi  - Advice for Students    

ISD has provided some information on how to connect to Wi-Fi where one’s own Wi-Fi may not be reliable.  Especially in relation to students in China using China Connect and for students (and staff) in the UK to enable the use of BT Wi-fi without a BT account.   

Remote Support for Staff and Students    

Staff from ISD, Digital Education and the Central Assessment Team will be available throughout the examination period. Information and links can be found on the online support page and the staff support page

In Person Examinations 

In person examinations will take place in rooms on the Bloomsbury Campus.  Details of the students’ exam rooms and seat numbers will be given in their individual timetables.  There are a handful of exams which are too large to fit into a single room, so it is particularly important for students to check the room on their own personal timetable as they may not be in the same room as other students taking the same examination. 

Completed examination scripts will be available from the exams base room in the basement of 169 Euston Road from 10am on the day following the examination date.  Our opening hours will be 10am-5pm Monday-Friday. 

Queries from Students    

Any students with queries should first be referred to our web pages at: Exams and assessments; and should direct any further queries to the Central Assessment Team via AskUCL.
