Please ensure you have read the following Exam Procedures for Candidates Summer 2022 before proceeding with your exams. This document provides important instructions for completing your assessments and sources of help for when things do not go to plan.

January 2022 Exams

The 2022 January exam period will take place between Monday 10 January and Friday 14 January 2022 inclusive. 

All examinations that were due to take place in-person in January 2022 will be listed on this schedule (therefore any assessments listed that are normally taken in the summer are for students from past cohorts who are resitting only).

Religious Observance

If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, you are unable to sit exams on specific dates, you should contact the exams team as soon as possible, and before the publication of the course by course timetable, to discuss possible arrangements. Please include the following information:

  • your name
  • your student ID number
  • the courses you are taking
  • the dates on which you are unable to attend exams
  • details of your religious observance (you may be asked to provide a supporting letter from a religious leader)

Please note that events such as weddings or other personal appointments do not constitute exceptional reasons for exam timetabling purposes.

The Holy month of Ramadan will overlap with the LSE Summer Exam Period in 2021/2022. Guidance about sitting exams during Ramadan can be be found here.

Arrangements for Central Exam Adjustments

Please note that due to January 2022 examinations now taking place online, only extra writing time and rest breaks will be applicable for this period. These provisions will only be applied to synchronous and asynchronous timed assessments (under 24 hours).

For further details about Central Exam Adjustments (CEAs), please visit our webpage.



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.
