9.10 What if you fall behind?

Nearly all students get behind at some point, so don’t panic. Contact your tutor or study adviser – they are there to support you and offer advice.

  • Ask for advice as soon as you realise there is a problem.
  • If a particular aspect of the study is slowing you down, speak to your tutor, who may be able to clarify things for you.
  • If you can’t make it to a tutorial, let the tutor know beforehand and ask for a copy of any notes provided.
  • If your circumstances are such that you are considering giving up, do talk to your tutor or study adviser first. One possible solution could be to defer study until a later date, but this could affect your future plans and financial commitments.
