As Libraries have now closed and we have all more or less been forced into our homes I believe it is safe to say that asking university students to continue working as normal from home is outrageous.  Alot of peoples home environments are just not conducive for study and It is unfair to assume that everyone has access to Internet and the necessary resources in their homes. Where the library would have once been a safe haven for many, they now have to deal with a full home where siblings and other distractions maybe at an all time high.

As university students, we have faced multitudes of challenges in the past few weeks. Many international students have had to completely abandon their life here and go back to their home countries to be with family. Many of us know family members or friends that are dealing directly with the COVID-19 infection. These are tough times for everyone and especially students who have so much on their plate.  As per government guidelines, GCSE and A-Level exams were cancelled so why can universities not do the same. Additionally, the majority of courses have suspended all exams and assignments. On the contrary the CIOB refuse to follow lead and insist on being ignorant to the pandemic and all of its inconvenience . This is not the time to have to worry about an assignment deadline, dissertation or exam revision. Universities should not expect us to carry on as normal through an online portal or even online exams. We strongly believe that the CIOB must re consider their stance and move to cancel all exams and assignments and allow automatic progression.
