Covid-19 has affect the UK for many months now and it is coming upto a year however, University students are yet to receive any support to help during thier studies. We have been blamed for spreading the virus several times. 

When the first lockdown happened in March/June 2020, GCSE student exams were scrapped and given random grades, A-level students received predicted grades, exams were cancelled, but University students are still required to produce the same standard of work, why? 

The answer is that we are University, but those students you have just cancelled exams and given predicted grades are now at University, doing exams, pushed further than thier limits. 

University students don't have access to all the books we need. We don't receive the support we need, its been noticed that more deaths of students has occurred during the pandemic but the government does not seem to care, it is brushed off. The government would rather have take a payrise and live the best life they can forgetting to think or care about others. 

University is charging everyone the same amount of tuition fee for online learning. We are not seeing how our loan has gone to support us in our studies. We would pay for the electricity at the University, but as University is closed where is that money going? We know its not going on 24/7 support for students who are struggling. Lectures have had a break over Christmas but students have not. This academic semester we did not receive a week off we went 12 weeks straight no gap. 

You are blaming students for spreading the virus, but we are being made to travel, move around as University's are making us go onto campus. Government are not going the correct way in saving the UK.

Students need to stand up, this is our chance. Lets take charge together.

Solution- Change the way our loan is being spent. Give University students support for this difficult time. Understand we cannot give the same level of work in this time.
