Late Summer Assessments will take place from 16 August until 3 September 2021.

The Exams office will issue cover sheets and formally request exam papers via an MS Form on Wednesday 7 July, when the draft exam timetable is published. If there are any changes to dates or additional exams to be added, revised cover sheets will be sent to departments. 

LSA exam papers need to be returned to the UCL Exams Office by Monday 19 July 2021.  Exam papers should be submitted as PDF to enable upload onto the AssessmentUCL platform.

Meeting this deadline is important to enable the Exams team to set up all the exams due to run in the LSA examination period.
