Examination timetable

Main Summer Exam Period 2015

The dates for the main summer 2015 exam period will appear on this webpage as soon as they are confirmed.  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. 

LSE examinations are scheduled Monday to Friday with starting times of either 10am or 2.30pm. No examinations are scheduled to take place over the weekends or bank-holidays.

The general, course by course, exam timetable will be released in March 2015. Last year's exam timetable is available below for reference but you should be aware that the timetable is re-written every year so the dates and times of exams will change substantially. An exam may be scheduled at any point during the exam period. 

LSE May,June Main Examination Timetable 2014|

Personalised exam timetables will be published, in LSE for You, in the first or second week of Summer Term 2014.

Please note that, when published, the examination timetable will have been approved by academic departments and we are therefore unable to consider any requests to reschedule individual exams.

Law Resits 2015

Law re-sits usually take place during the first week of September but the exact dates will be confirmed on this webpage as soon as they are confirmed.

Personal Timetables for Law Resit period will be emailed to students taking re-sits by the end of August. 

Religious holidays

If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, you are unable to sit examinations on specific dates, you should email examinations@lse.ac.uk| as soon as possible, and before the publication of the general course by course timetable, to discuss alternative arrangements. Please include the following information:

  • your name
  • 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.

Personalised timetable

Your personalised examination timetable for the main summer exam session, indicating your allocated room and seat for each examination, will be available via LSE for You in the first two weeks 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 three 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.

If you are due to take exams in the September Law re-sit period your personal timetable will be emailed to you in August. You should check this thoroughly to ensure it includes all courses that you may need to take. 

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 arrangements for summer exams

Daily examination arrangements, for candidates with individual examination adjustments and late enrolments, are available from the Individual Examination Adjustments & Late Entries| web page.

For the Law re-sit period these arrangements will be included in your personal timetable.

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

More details about working at the end of your studies are available from the International Student Immigration Service|.
