Hi Stacy83,

You can study up to 4 modules per academic year if you register for the academic session commencing in November. With UoLIP, you only sit exams either in May/June or October of the following (calendar) year. The academic year runs from October to October of the following year. The October exam session is usually for resits, and you can only sit 2 exams. But from November 2018, they are allowing students to spread their exams over the two sessions, at the expense of their resists. For instance, you could sit 2 modules in May/June and 2 modules in October. However, if you fail one of the modules you took in May/June, you won't be able to retake it in October, unless you do not take the exam for one of the outstanding two modules (which you would have paid for). So this is something to consider when you register for modules and exams. I hope this makes sense.

[EDIT]
If you are applying to an EMFS course, the above may not apply to you. "Date of examinations 4.4 Timed written examinations take place in May/June each year." I would advise contacting the student advice team at +442078628360 or via the portal. The response time is much faster. Here is a link to the programme regulations for all 2018/19 courses https://london.ac.uk/current-student...#undergraduate.
[EDIT]

You might want to check the programme regulations and specifications for the BSc you are interested in studying; all the information you need should be in there. Every programme has specific progression requirements (e.g. you must pass one particular module at level 4 to be able to register for a level 5 module). At level 6, for the LLB at least, you are allowed to study up to 5 modules, so this may come in handy if you decide to split your exams.

Hope this helps.
