Examinations FAQs

When and where are examinations held?

All module examinations take place once a year during the late September/early October examination period. As a result, we only have one examination period held during late September/early October each year. The University of London maintains an extensive world wide network of local examination centres, so it would usually be possible for you to sit the examinations for your modules at a location that is convenient to you.

Why is there only one examination period per year?

The cost of running more than one examination period each year is prohibitively high. If we were to run a second examination period, the cost of each module would need to increase by at least £300. We want our modules to be affordable to as many people as possible, so we try to keep our costs down. As a result, we only have one examination period held during October each year.

I have a problem with the date/location of my examinations. What can I do?

The date and location of an examination can only be changed in exceptional circumstances, such as the examination centre being closed on the scheduled date of the examination. In this situation, contact pgug.exams@london.ac.uk. Please note that it is not compulsory for you to sit the examination for a module in the same year that you studied that module.
