During these precedent times, and the situations we face, what's to happen next isn't always foreseeable. As a community within Kingston University we all feel that a 5 hour timeframe for our 2021 examinations puts us at a disadvantage during this pandemic. One of the main problems we may face that could put us at a disadvantage is the number of people living in each household which could create constant noise alongside with very little to no privacy. Currently during this period it is now a norm to be working at home which creates a strain on us because of the timetabling that we would have around the house. By having our examinations for 5 hours may clash with the people working at home and also may cause problems with the wifi speed because of everyone individually using it at the same time. Also to add to the point of household members, majority of us students have younger siblings that need to be cared for which could either be; aiding them in the school commute or homeschooling them during the day. We would not be put in an exam hall with lots of noise so why should we at home. I believe that 24 hours will allow students to choose the best time to suit them to give them optimal focus in these exams.
