SASS ESCG started this petition to ESCG Lewes

To ESCG Lewes leadership,

Students Against Study Sessions (SASS) feel it is good to offer students additional study sessions, but they should be optional, otherwise, they will be unfair and doomed to fail.

SASS believes that the many students who are critical of study sessions deserve a way to feedback their criticisms to the leadership, and that such a way does not currently exist. Which is why this petition has been made.

SASS brings forward the following criticisms of the obligatory study sessions:

1. They add extra stress to already highly pressured students
2. They may unintentionally lower attendance statistics
3. They feel patronising
4. The sessions won't be attended by those who need them, but rather everyone else
5. Students with unconditional offers (or who are already significantly above their entry requirements) don't benefit from the sessions 
6. The sessions are a waste of staff labour
7. Some students revise far better at home than in college

SASS also respects the criticisms of the broader student body not included here, which are equally important to be heard.

SASS believes that the study sessions should not be timetabled or registered, and not affect attendance statistics
