Assessment Timetable

for January, Summer and Re-sits 

A course by course timetable is made available here. Personal timetables, with room and seat allocations, are published in LSE for You.

LSE Exam Timetable

There will be no on-campus exams for the remainder of the 2019/20 academic session.  All exams have been replaced by online assessments, so the exam timetable will no longer apply.  Instead, there is an Assessment Schedule, further details of which can be found below.

Personal timetables will not be published on LSE for You, but an alternative Personal Assessment Schedule through a different system will be available to students in May.  Further details about this will be released to students directly when the Personal Assessment Schedule is available.

Please note that Personal timetables and Personal Assessment Schedules will not be published or made available for the In-Year Resit and Deferred Assessment Period (IRDAP). 

Summer 2020 assessments

The 2020 summer term assessment period will take place between Monday 04 May and Friday 19 June 2020 inclusive.

The course-by-course summer term 2020 Assessment Schedule can be found here.

IRDAP 2020 assessments

Personal timetables and Personal Assessment Schedules will not be published or made available for IRDAP.

Details about the timings and format of replacement online assessments for the 2020 in-year resit and deferral assessment period (IRDAP) will be released on Thursday 09 July 2020.

Religious Observance

If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, you are unable to sit exams on specific dates, you should email 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.

Ramadan will overlap with the LSE Summer exam period in 2019/2020. Guidance about sitting exams during Ramadan can be found here.

Daily Arrangements
for IEAs and Late entrants

Daily exam arrangements, for candidates with individual exam arrangements and late entrants, are available from the Individual Examination Adjustments & Late Entries web page.

For the LLB resit period these arrangements will be included in your personal timetable.

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.
