Late summer assessments

UCL has been working towards the introduction of late summer assessments in order to improve the student experience and better align UCL with the rest of the UK higher education sector.

The late summer period for centrally-administered examinations will take place from 20 August to 7 September 2018. If you require a resit or deferral, the exam timetable will be made available to you (via Portico) by 23 July 2018. If you have multiple late summer assessments, exams are likely to be more compressed than in the main exam period; however, every effort will be made to avoid having 2 exams in a single day.

The deadlines for coursework and other forms of assessment will be published by your department. All assessments should take place by 7 September 2018.

The new sitting is accompanied by new regulations for all UCL taught students:
