From Monday 11 May to Friday 5 June The SU will be promoting activities and resources to help us study well during assessments.
This years assessments may present new and additional stresses, due to the current Covid-19 situation and we are aware that it won’t be easy for some, but we would like to reassure you that support is available should you need it.
Our fantastic team at The SU Advice & Support Centre are able offer confidential, independent and non- judgemental information, advice and support if you are experiencing any problems. If you've had a personal circumstance that might have affected your performance in exams, The SU Advice & Support Centre can help guide through your options including Individual Mitigating Circumstances.
To feel prepared for online assessments we recommend familiarising yourself with the following University guidance: Guide to Assessment 2019/20 and Online Assessment Submission Guidance.
Looking after ourselves is arguably the most important thing we can do during assessment season and we will be providing ideas, tips and resources to support wellbeing on Corona Community. If you have any suggestions to share with others, please get in touch and get involved on the Corona Community!
