Results day was on Monday 27 November 2023, we know this can be a stressful time so we’ve put together some useful information about what happens next.

Results Day

The vast majority of students will receive their marks to their UCL email address from Monday 27 November and be able to view them on Portico from Tuesday 28 July.  

There are not expected to be missing results following the previous Marking and Assessment Boycott. However, your department should contact you if this is the case to advise what will happen next.

Different programmes use different rules to calculate your final classification. You can find the standard regulations in the Academic Manual (Section 10 Classification).

Deferred an assessment or taking a second attempt?

If you have failed an assessment or exam, your department should contact you before your official results being released. They will let you know how this impacts your award and if you need to do anything.

If you have deferred coursework, your dissertation or departmentally managed assessments, your department will let you know how and when you need to do this.

Unhappy with your results?

If you are unhappy with your results, or would just like some general feedback, you may want to contact your department or personal tutor to arrange a time to discuss this.

UCL's Student Support and Wellbeing team is also on hand if you would like some extra support. You can find more information about the support they can offer on results day here.

If you have reason to believe that UCL’s academic regulations and related procedures were not followed correctly in the marking of your exam, you may want to consider submitting an academic appeal. However, please note that it is not possible to submit an appeal on the basis of academic judgement. This means that appeals will not be considered on the grounds that the examiners’ assessment was incorrect. This is because all assessments will already have undergone a rigorous marking and moderating process.

You can also submit an academic appeal if there were circumstances which significantly affected your assessments, but you were unable to submit an Extenuating Circumstances claim at the time. Please note however that you will need to provide compelling reasons with supporting evidence to show why you were unable to notify your department of these circumstances during the period of your assessment.

You can find more information about the Academic Appeals process here.

Certificate and Transcripts

You will receive an email from Academic Services with your confirmed results/award on the 27 November 2023.  Once you have received your official results email, you will be able to access a self-serve E-transcript and Statement of Award from the 28 November 2023.

If you have completed your degree, you should receive your degree certificate and a copy of your official transcript to your home address within around 3 months from the date of award. 

New for this year, you will be able to access an E-certificate via the Gradintel platform. UCL anticipate that this will be available from early December, date to be confirmed in due course.

You can find more information about transcripts and certificates on the UCL website here.
