We the undersigned express our disappointment and concern regarding
the extensive delay in confirming examination dates.
Birkbeck college describes itself as "London's only specialist provider
of evening higher education". The college is aware that a large proportion of its
student body balance career commitments with academic
workload. With just about two months to go until
exams we still do not have concrete dates which we can book off work.
The later the dates are released, the greater chance that our workplaces
will refuse us the time off.
We would expect such a specialist school to realize that the setting of
examination dates is a very important issue to the student body. We
request that the school change its current examination date disclosure
policy: dates should be confirmed much earlier on, preferably at the
start of the academic year, or at least during the first term.
