Sometimes, exam results don’t go as planned. UCL Student Support and Wellbeing is here to support you all the way - read on for information on the options available if you find that you’ve failed an exam or assessment.

We hope that your results were as you expected, but if they weren’t, UCL Student Support and Wellbeing is here for you. You can make a same-day appointment to speak with an adviser by calling +44 (0)20 7679 0100 between 9am and 10am, or submit an enquiry via askUCL. We’ll have extra appointments available around results day, so you’ll be able to speak to an adviser easily.

You can also hear from fellow UCL students, who have given their perspectives and advice - Dylan Ngan has written about their experience of changing academic performance , putting things into perspective and thinking about how we can look after ourselves. For tips and tricks on putting failure into perspective , check out this post by Valeria Fernandez Soriano, who has shared her experience of coming to terms with her exam season not going to plan.

If you don’t do as well as expected, Dr Barry Keane from Student Psychological and Counselling Services has written a piece shedding light on how some defeats can lead to the biggest triumphs.

There is lots of support available across UCL to help you work through your options, and we’re here for you all the way. If you’re looking for advice on funding to support you in interrupting or repeating your studies, the Student Funding team have produced a guide with information on the next steps to consider. You’re not alone and don’t have to go through this by yourself - if you’d like to discuss your situation further, please get in touch via askUCL.
