Assessment will be based on the results of two examinations or, alternatively, a final examination and assessed work. The final examination will take place on the last day of the course.
Examinations are not compulsory (see below).
A detailed examination timetable will be distributed during the course. Examinations are normally two hours in length and are conducted under regular LSE examination regulations. Please ensure you familiarise yourself with these regulations.
Important: Please take into consideration when making travel arrangements that the last examinations will officially end at 6pm on the final Friday of each session. For this reason we advise students to make travel arrangements for the Saturday after the course has finished.
Special examination arrangements
We are happy to make arrangements for candidates who are entitled to extra examination time. Students will need to notify the Summer School Office, including proof of arrangement at their home institution, in advance of the start of the programme, but certainly no later than the end of the first week of the programme. It is not possible to guarantee special arrangements after this.
Candidates who claim impairment of their examination performance due to illness will need to provide a detailed medical certificate from either their own, or the LSE doctor, to support their case. In cases where this is accepted a note will be added to the transcript stating that the student's performance was impaired due to circumstances beyond their control.
