The importance of our third year at university is highly emphasised by teaching staff. So why are our exam results not treated with the priority that they deserve By the end of Week 2 of second semester, we need to make informed decisions about our course choices, to enable us to progress into the degree that we want. So, how can we make that decision when our results are being returned in Week 4 Many students are left with limited or no honours options because they were unable to pick the correct 2nd semester courses to enable them to progress into the honours of their choice. If we had our exam results even a couple of weeks earlier, this would no longer be a problem. We want our exam results to be available to us before we need to make the choices that affect our honours degree and therefore our career.
