Assessment Period update
Following on from the release of exam timetables on friday, and conversations with the University, we have learned that changes to exam timetables are unlikely. However if you feel severely disadvantaged or are concerned because of any potential clashes, please do contact your department to flag this. The student guide to online assessments that was sent out yesterday highlights potential options around deferred assessments if this is a particularly difficult period of time for you. This guide also includes resources and advice on how to take online assessments. We are continuously working with the University to ensure you have the right resources and information available to you.
No Detriment Update
Many of you have been waiting to receive additional information on the No Detriment policy and what this looks like for you.We are expecting for the University to release an update on what No Detriment measures look like for continuing undergraduates and PGT students very soon in addition to a student explainer to address some of the questions you may have.
If you have read the student guide to online assessments and would like to speak to someone about submitting an Individual Mitigating Circumstances (IMC) then you can contact our Advice and Support team in the SU at firstname.lastname@example.org If you do submit an IMC claim this must be within three working days of the affected assessment deadline or exam date.
Disability Action Plans (DAPs)
If you have a DAP and have queries regarding how this is implemented for online assessments or if you feel that your adjustments need changing in light of the changes to assessments please seek advice as soon as possible from the Disability Advice Team at email@example.com.
Next week we are kicking off our first ever virtual Study Well campaign. We will be bringing you resources to help with your revision, as well as study tips and activities. Stay tuned for further updates!
