With exams coming up for thousands of students, Edinburgh College has notified them that they will be held in person in colleges. 

After a year of online learning, getting used to open book assessments, where students are allowed to use their notes from class to answer questions, as well as the social aspects. Most students haven’t met any of their class members or lecturers this educational year, so to put them in a room filled with people they’ve never met on a day where they are most stressed will certainly cause more anxiety. 

Many students, having thought that the whole course would be online, applied even though they live far away from the colleges, therefore they may have to spend over an hour on public transport to get there, causing more risk factors in terms of catching COVID-19. 

We as students, concerned for our and our families health, as well as our grades being lowered as a result of being used to remote learning, need your help to convince Edinburgh College to let us sit exams remotely.
