PASS sessions are up and running for the trimester! They will take a pause during the holiday break but will recommence weekly for the rest of the trimester.

What is a PASS session?

PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) is an academic assistance program that involves regularly-scheduled study sessions throughout the trimester,  facilitated by peers.  All PASS sessions are held on-line via zoom & there are multiple sessions per week for each subject.   They are led by students that have previously completed the subject & have done well in it. You are able to ask questions, discuss concepts, get help with difficult topics, work through examples, review notes, share study strategies, prepare for exams and assessment tasks in a supportive relaxed environment.
