Assessment Regulations Review


We are conducting a review of LSE's current assessment regulations and creating a set of recommended changes, which we will then lobby for LSE to implement. The current regulations create a negative experience for many, exacerbating inequalities and poor mental health in the student community. Our goal is to make LSE's assessment regulations fairer and more empathetic towards students. We have identified seven academic regulations which require reviewing: 

  1. Exceptional Circumstances 
  2. Fit to Sit
  3. Appeals
  4. Academic Misconduct
  5. Extensions 
  6. Late Submissions
  7. Evidence Requirements


  • Undertake a review of LSE's assessment regulations
  • Create a report with recommendations
  • Lobby LSE to commit to reforming the assessment regulations in line with our recommendations

The Report

On 1 April we released the Assessment Regulations Report. You can find links to both the full report and to the executive summary for students below:

The Consultation

With the report's publication we are now seeking the input of all LSE stakeholders - from students to staff.

Please take some time to read through the report, and once you have done so, click here to contribute your views. 

The consultation closes on Sunday 25 April.


If you are a current student who would like to speak to someone about any of these regulations in relation to your current assessments or studies, our Advice Team can offer free, impartial and confidential advice and support. The best way to contact them is via:
