All LSE-PKU Summer School courses are assessed and graded, and a transcript and certificate are provided to all participants who successfully complete their course.
Courses are generally assessed on a mid-term paper and a final examination, but other elements such as mid-term quizzes, group projects and student presentations may also contribute.
All courses feature a final examination, which are two hours in length and held on the final day of the programme. All participants are encouraged to take the final examination, but those who choose not to are eligible to be awarded a Statement of Attendance, provided they have attended at least 80 per cent of the taught sessions. The final examination will be written by hand, however additional arrangements can be made for students with a disability or medical condition.
Full details of the assessment criteria, marking schemes and deadlines will be provided at the start of the programme. Please see the individual course descriptions for further information.
