    全英学联为学生发声:呼吁取消夏季的考试

    全英学生联合会呼吁大学取消或推迟今年夏天的考试,以避免在冠状病毒大流行期间进一步给学生造成压力和干扰他们的生活。

    学联表示,如果大学通过下个学期举行在线考试和评估的计划,那么残疾,国际学生和贫困学生将处于不利地位。

    学联提出,应为毕业年级的学生提供如何完成学位的选择,例如根据以前的成绩获得估计的成绩,进行在线公开考试或延迟参加大学的期末考试。

    “在当前的形势下,必须以学生福利至上。” 学联副主席(高等教育)克莱尔•索西恩斯基-史密斯(Claire Sosienski-Smith)说, “至关重要的是,今年不该有强制考试。”

    学联还补充说,所有大一和大二学生的考试都应取消,而研究生应将提交截止日期延长六个月。

    需求是在全国成千上万的学生呼吁进行替代评估以确保其学习成绩不会受到Covid-19爆发的不利影响之后提出的。

    The National Union of Students has called on universities to cancel or postpone this summer’s exams to avoid further stress and disruption to students’ lives during the coronavirus pandemic.

    The NUS said disabled, international and poorer students would be significantly disadvantaged if universities go through with plans to hold online exams and assessments next term.

    It said final-year students should be given a choice of how to complete their degrees, such as receiving an estimated grade based on prior attainment, doing an open book online exam, or taking their finals at the university at a later date.

    “In the current climate, student welfare must come first,” said Claire Sosienski-Smith, the NUS vice-president (higher education). “It is vital that there are no compulsory exams this year.”

    The NUS added that all exams for first and second-year students should be cancelled, while postgraduate students should get a six-month extension to their submission deadlines.

    The demand comes after thousands of students across the country called for alternative assessments to be put in place to ensure their academic performance is not adversely affected by the Covid-19 outbreak.
