Cough assists are used world wide, they push air in and pull air out like an artificial cough assists and then when done they're in the hands of the dhb seemingly meant for others but they're not. Where are all the cough assists and why can't we use them?

The UCL Physics Intake-2020 Cohort believes an injustice has been committed regarding inadequate student support during the COVID transition from online to in-person exams. Our department is the ONLY department in UCL that enforced our exams to be in person, for our final year.
We were happy to accept the department's decision under the condition that we would receive support to adequately prepare. With all of our previous years being online, we have no experience sitting in-person exams at University, hence we requested support in the form of legitimate mocks. This is how the university responded:
-Forcing students to bring their own questions and writing material.
-Refusing to provide students with any form of feedback for the mock.
-Refusing to replicate exam conditions for students with disabilities and mental health conditions.
-Limiting access to only 80 undergrad students (there are over 250 students) to sit the "mock".
In addition to this, we have been pleading for mocks since the beginning of the year and we were only informed of the details 9 days before the mock. Students feel that the lack of communication from our department proves the unwillingness to provide us adequate support to sit these in-person exams. UCL is ranked as the 8th best university in the world and is one of the top Russell Group universities in the UK. Home students pay over £9,000 per year and overseas students pay over £30,000. We expect better than this.
Departments parallel to ours such as Physics with Medical Physics and Maths have chosen to support students with online exams as they understand there is inadequate time to support and prepare students for in-person exams. We feel this gives us a significant disadvantage to students studying in other departments in our final, most important, year.
COVID resulted in students having their last in-person exams as GCSEs. This alongside our whole degree being online up until this year has caused many students excessive stress, especially students with mental health conditions and disabilities. We need your help to get an injustice changed. We are increasingly concerned with the impact this will have on our final grades and our futures!
Over 175 distressed physics students who have been adversely impacted by the UCL Physics department's decision to not adequately support us during the COVID transition from online to in person exams this year have signed this petition so far. We are demanding online exams. We will protest until our voices are heard, with the first protest commencing in the coming weeks.Read more
