Main Summer Exams 2017
The 2017 summer exam period will take place between 2 May and 9 June 2017.
The full course by course timetable for the Summer exam period is available here.
Re-sit and deferred exams take place on the same date and at the same time as the main sittings listed in the course by course timetable.
The exam timetable has been approved across the school, including by all academic departments, and we are therefore unable to consider any requests to reschedule individual exams.
During the main summer exam period exams are scheduled Monday to Friday with starting times of either 10am or 2.30pm. No exams will be scheduled to take place over the weekends or on bank holidays.
Please remember that regardless of the exam schedule, all students are required to be available throughout the Summer Term in case, for example, an exam needs to be rescheduled at late notice. Term ends on Friday 9 June, not after your last exam. Details about working after your exams can be seen at the bottom of this page.
Personal exam timetables will be published, in LSE for You, by 23:59 on 24 April 2017.
Law Resits 2017
The Law resits will take place at the end of August. Further information will be published here nearer the time.
If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, you are unable to sit exams on specific dates, you should email the exams team 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 student ID number
the courses you are taking
the dates on which you are unable to attend exams
details of your exceptional circumstances
Please note that events such as weddings or other personal appointments do not constitute exceptional reasons for exam timetabling purposes.
Ramadan overlaps with the LSE exam period in 2017 from 30th May to 9th June. For advice regarding sitting exams during Ramadan, please see guidance here.
Your personal exam timetable for the main summer exam session, indicating your allocated room and seat for each exam, will be available via LSE for You by 23:59 on 24 April 2017.
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 queries about your course enrolment, please contact Registry.
If, by the first week of Summer Term, your personal exam timetable has not been published, is incomplete, or is inaccurate, please email the exams team with your student ID number and details of the problem.
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 exam arrangements, for candidates with individual exam arrangements and late enrolments, are available from the Individual Examination Adjustments & Late Entries web page.
For the Law resit 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 LSE International Student Visa Advice Team.
