This year's 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 to offer confidential, independent and non-judgemental information, advice and support if you are experiencing any problems. If you have circumstances that have affected your performance in assessments, The SU Advice & Support Centre can help guide through your options including Individual Mitigating Circumstances, extensions and deferrals. They’ll help you complete the process, including advising you on the form and evidence to provide.
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 the SU Bath Community group. If you have any suggestion to share with others, please get in touch and get involved!
Follow The SU on Facebook and Instagram for updates and tips and tricks.
