Comments from users on The Student Room gave mixed reviews:

I get tired very quickly and end up zoning out
the ones which have been recorded in advance just come across as lazy and lacking effort
the amount of guidance we’ve been given has significantly reduced”

Comments from users on The Student Room shed some light on the poll result:

“I want to hear Gavin Williamson and Ofqual to see what will be done for the Y10’s and Y12’s.”
“no word on what will happen with schools”
“I think a lot of the problem is that the advice particularly on the daily press briefings is very waffle-y and repetitive.”
