A practical guide to all aspects of LSE Examination procedures.

Information on when the School examination timetable is published and when personal examination timetables are available.

Details about making arrangements if you have a documented medical, physical or psychological condition and/or a learning disability.

For IEA room allocations please see Daily Arrangements.

Information on deferring your examinations, submitting proof of exceptional circumstances and what to do if you are ill on the day of an exam.

Details on applying for exceptional permission to arrange sitting an examination overseas.

Youare strongly advised to familiarise themselves with the regulations relating to their studies and as well as the regulations listed below.

It is the School's view that when a student decides to enter an examination, he/she has declared him/herself 'fit to sit'. However, if you feel that your examination performance was affected, significantly and negatively, by exceptional circumstances, defined as unexpected, significantly disruptive and beyond your control, you may submit an exceptional circumstances claim. All such claims should be supported by official, original evidence of your circumstances. If you intend to do so, it is vital that you notify Student Services within seven days of your final exam. It is unlikely that circumstances which are brought to the School's attention more than seven days after your final exam will be admissible.

Details on the exam barring process and what that means for students taking assessment. 

Details on what will happen if an allegation of exam misconduct is made against you.

Information about the publication and understanding of results.

Exams for other institutions

In almost all cases LSE is, unfortunately, not able to administer, proctor or invigilate examinations set by other institutions. The only exceptions to this policy are those exams which appear in the main LSE exam timetable and for LSE students who are taking intercollegiate courses and have IEAs in place.
