We are calling for the University of the West of Scotland to implement a a no-detriment policy for end of year exams due the Covid-19 outbreak. This would provide a "safety net" for students during this uncertain time. Providing this safety net would ensure that no student is disadvantaged by circumstances outwith their control. As many students will not have access to good/working wifi, laptops or other facilities. 

Many universities across the UK have already implemented this policy, such as the University of Edinburgh, Glasgow Caledonian University and Cardiff University. We have created this petition asking that UWS follow in suit. This means that any work submitted towards their final grade will only improve it and not bring down degree classifications due to circumstances that are out-with our control. 

During this time it is unreasonable for the university to expect students to carry on as normal and risk the current situation impact four years or hard work. We want to work with the university to ensure that exam are implemented fairly and that no student is disadvantaged.
