If you don’t sign in we won’t mark you in. • Please make sure you’re working for that hour, we might tell you to come back for another hour in the week if you’re wasting time online or just chatting with friends. • You only need to sign in for one hour per week. That hour can be whenever is most convenient for you, but please sign in!!! • Supervised study is a working hour. Make the most of it. • If you’re doing your supervised study with another member of staff please bring a note from them, or ask them to email the LRC team so you can log that hour properly.
