In order to progress to year two of the programme LSE must receive confirmation from the University of Chicago that the student has passed Paper 8 “Microeconomics for Health Policy I”. Students cannot progress to year two until this course is passed. This course title and indication of Pass will appear on the LSE transcript but the LSE degree classification shall only be calculated on the marks achieved in the four LSE course units. An LSE award can only be made when a student has successful completed all LSE and University of Chicago assessments.

Where a student fails an LSE assessment they are permitted one attempt to resubmit this assessment at the next appropriate opportunity which is normally during the next academic year during the equivalent assessment period. Where a student is required to resubmit an assessment, their overall LSE degree will be capped at a Pass.
