Following one of the busiest and most controversial exam seasons we’ve ever seen, here’s how it went
With exams now at a close, The Student Room is alive with discussion, as students across the UK wait in anticipation for Results Day. From debates over tricky Maths and Physics questions, to nervous discussions over grades, TSR has seen massive amounts of activity over the past few weeks
As this year’s exam season comes to a close, students are getting more and more creative when cheating
In response to recent exams, The Student Room conducted a survey of just under 1000 students to gain insight into what exactly goes on in the exam hall. It turns out students are getting more inventive when it comes to cheating.
With more exams still to come, we’re set to become even busier, breaking more TSR records
Last week we broke our site traffic record with over 400,000 students checking into The Student Room. This was after a day crammed with Maths exams – that’s almost the equivalent of filling Wembley Stadium five times over – generating over 2.1 million page views in a single day!
With more and more students feeling the stress and anxiety around exams and results, posting numbers soar by 56%
Wednesday 13th of May marks a record breaking day in The Student Room history – breaking all records from previous years with over 20,000 students online at once, all digesting content and providing advice and guidance to their fellow users.
What factors influence a student's firm and insurance choices? And how should marketers focus their efforts around swinging this decision in their favour.
Universities are allocating more time and money on marketing in order to attract applications from students.

Thousands of students from across the country were marching yesterday in central London to protest against tuition fees, re-sparking the debate around how to pay for education.
Recently The Student Room released the Future Student report which looked into how the next ten years will change the education world. A big part of that change is credited to Massive Open Online Course’s or simply called, MOOCs.
Many will agree that the classroom setting is quickly changing and that the digital world is becoming the norm. With more and more students and employers wanting a wider set of skills and competencies, educational tools like MOOC seem to be the way forward.
With the increase of student tuition fees in recent years to £9,000 a year, many officials are worrying about the repayment of these loans by students.
The BBC is reporting that around 45% of university graduates do not earn enough to repay their loans. The current system has the students not paying any fees upfront and need only to start repaying their loans when they earn £21,000 a year.
This year at The Student Room we wanted to share our A-level results day experience with the world. So we decided to capture all of our members in action helping students at TSR towers on the 14th.
