Amy Johnson started this petition to Leeds College of Music and

This is a petition for Leeds College of Music to implement a 'Safety Net' policy, or 'no-detriment' approach to all upcoming assignments, for all students. This would mean that our grades for the year so far would set the benchmark for our overall grade for the year, and any future submissions could not lower our marks, only provide the opportunity to improve them. 

This approach would provide the incentive to learn the content, and complete the assignments, but would alleviate the pressure of completing these assignments under such extreme conditions. 

Many universities across the country have already cancelled their exams or implemented this policy, including Liverpool, Sheffield, Exeter and Warwick to name a few. 

This petition also calls for a further extension period, given that assessments and teaching are still being reviewed until present (2nd April) and the college began to shut its doors on March 16th. The 2/3 week extension given so far only just covers that lost ground. E.g. The University of Exeter states that: 'any student concerned about the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on their ability to perform may ask to defer all of their remaining assessments for this academic year until either the next assessment window (later this summer) or to next academic year.  No evidence will be required to support either request.'.
