PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) is an academic support program that may help increase your academic performance. You get the opportunity to be part of a friendly learning environment with your peers.
During the session, a high achieving student who has previously excelled in the course assists you with the requirements of a course.
Evidence indicates that students who are assisted by PASS have a better chance of passing or attaining a higher grade. For instance, in Semester 1 2017, 33 UU114 students attended PASS sessions regularly with 32 of them passing well. Another strong example is in Semester 1 2015, of the 15 students who scored an A+ in an Education course (ED152), 12 of these were PASS assisted. As recently as Semester 2 in 2019, 92% of all students assisted by the PASS programme successfully completed their course. 66% of all students scored a grade of B or higher.
As part of PASS, you get to enjoy 4 scheduled hours per week here at Laucala Campus. It is strongly recommended that you attend these sessions as they will definitely assist you with the required skills and eventually improve your grade.
Needless to say, this service of free of charge, so take full advantage of this valuable service.
