Everything you need to know about the General Election Find out more

This advice applies to the 2022/23 academic year.

Results day was on Thursday 6 July 2023, we know this can be a stressful time so we’ve put together some useful information about what happens next.

Results Days

The vast majority of students will receive their marks to their UCL email address from Thursday 6 July 2023 and be able to view them on Portico from Monday 10 July 2023.  

However, unfortunately, some students may experience delays in receiving some or all marks due to the Marking and Assessment Boycott. If that's you, you will receive a personalised email explaining your marks on 6 July. 

To ensure that as many students as possible can progress and complete their studies, UCL have scheduled an additional Results Day on Thursday 27 July 2023. This will allow additional time to support departments whilst they process outstanding marks. You can see further information here.

Different programmes use different rules to calculate your final classification. You can find the standard regulations in the Academic Manual (Section 10 Classification). If you are an undergraduate and enrolled in 2017-18 or earlier, you can find information about classification here

If you are a final year student and have any questions about how the new classification borderlines have impacted your final award, you should contact your department.

Late Summer Assessments (LSA)

If you have failed or deferred exams assessments for modules from this academic year, you will be notified of this in your results email.

The LSA examination period assesses students that have deferred one or more of their assessments. This year, the LSA exam period will take place from 21 August to 8 September 2023.

If you are taking centrally managed exams in the LSA period, you will receive your exam timetable by email on 24 July 2023.

If you are submitting coursework or sitting departmentally managed assessments in the LSA period, 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.

If you are considering making a structural change to your studies, such as a repetition of the past year or taking a break altogether, UCL has provided some advice here.

Certificate and Transcripts

If you have completed your degree, you will now be sent your certificate and five copies of your transcript to your home address. You should receive these documents within 3 months of your degree being conferred.

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