London Taught Course Centre for students in mathematical sciences

Exams menu


First-year PhD students in Mathematics and Statistics from the consortium members (Brunel, City, Imperial Statistics, Kent, King’s, LSE, QMUL, Royal Holloway and UCL) are expected to attend four LTCC modules and answer the examination questions on these four modules. If you are unsure, check how many units you are required to take with your supervisor. Exceptions to the rule should be confirmed by the postgraduate tutor in the student’s department and notified to the LTCC administrator.

Exams for basic courses take place in the Spring term (usually in April). Advanced course assessments take place at the end of each module.

Exam Timetable 2017-2018

The exam timetable will be released later in the year.



Examinations are in the form of a ‘take-home’ paper. Students are expected to spend no more than 3-4 hours on each module, and they should be aware that very long answers are unlikely to find favour with the examiners.

Students will be asked to produce one PDF file for each module attempted, either by conversion from LaTeX, or by scanning a handwritten document. These files should be emailed to the LTCC administrator. Alternatively, answers (in the form specified) may be mailed or delivered in person to the Department of Mathematics at UCL, to arrive by the deadline. Late submissions will be reviewed individually.
