Pass Graph of GPA results

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) offer dedicated subject specific study sessions. They are a great way to meet people in your subject and course and a proved way to improve your marks!

Research shows students who attend PASS five or more times in a semester significantly increase their chances of passing.

What students like most about PASS

"Interacting; getting a different perspective; an opportunity to discuss [content] with peers."

"We just go over everything that's a bit confusing, and we go over it until we all understand completely!"

"Small groups and taking time to make sure everyone gets it."

"How much easier [my subject] is to understand. Without [PASS], I would be lost."

What is PASS?

PASS is a FREE academic support program for students. The highly successful program operates in universities across Australia and commenced at JCU in 2014 in selected subjects.

PASS provides a casual, friendly and active learning environment where students can work together to better understand the content and learning objectives for a subject. The study sessions focus on integrating course content (what to learn) with academic reasoning and study skills (how to learn).

Students who consistently attend PASS sessions are shown to attain higher results than those who do not participate.

How can PASS help me?

Participating in PASS will help students to:

  • Improve marks and overall academic performance, especially when they attend 9 or more sessions
  • Save time because they will study more effectively
  • Understand subject content more deeply
  • Develop closer relationships with other students, and
  • Develop teamwork and communication skills

Which subjects have PASS?

The following subjects will include PASS sessions during SP2, 2020.
