Examinations for the 2013/4 session will be held as follows:
Undergraduate - Monday 19 May to Wednesday 18 June inclusive
Graduate- Monday 2 June to Friday 27 June inclusive (Note: some departments may schedule exams from Monday 12 May onwards)
Please note that examinations at the School are scheduled Monday to Friday with starting times of either 10am or 2.30pm. No examinations are scheduled to take place over the weekends.
Regardless of the examination schedule, all students are required to be available throughout the Summer Term in case, for example, an examination needs to be rescheduled or your script is deemed illegible by the examiner.
General course-by-course timetable
See LSE Examination Timetable 2014.
Please note that the examination timetable has been approved by academic departments and therefore we are unable to consider requests to reschedule individual exams.
Written language examinations are included in the above timetable. For oral and listening exams, see Language Examination Timetables.
Your personalised examination timetable, indicating your allocated room and seat for each examination, will be available via LSE for You in the first week of Summer Term.
In advance of the start of Summer Term, please check on LSE for You to ensure that you are enrolled for the correct courses. For advice on amending your course choices, please contact Registry.
If, by the start of Week Two, your personalised examination timetable has not been published, is incomplete, or is inaccurate, please email Registry with your student ID number and details of the problem.
Please note that, in very exceptional circumstances, the dates of individual exams are subject to change. You should check your personal exam timetable carefully when it is published.
Daily examination arrangements, for candidates with individual examination adjustments and late enrolments, are available from the Individual Examination Adjustments & Late Entries web page.
If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, you are unable to sit an examination as scheduled, you should email email@example.com as soon as possible to discuss alternative arrangements. Please include the following information:
your student ID number
the courses you are taking
the dates on which you are unable to attend examinations
details of your exceptional circumstances
Please note that events such as weddings or other personal appointments do not constitute exceptional reasons for examination timetabling purposes.
Before your examinations, you should familiarise yourself with the Examination Procedures for Candidates.
Working at the end of your studies
If you have a student visa, you can work part time during your studies and full time during the vacation. The vacation time starts after the official term end date, not after your final exam. If you are a one year Masters student and have to submit a dissertation, your vacation time starts after the official end of your programme in September. Full details are available from the International Student Immigration Service.
