Use YourTutor minutes wisely

Due to YourTutor's popularity, from Monday 1st May monthly usage limits will apply – both when chatting online and when submitting assignments for review. This will ensure that all students have the opportunity to make use of this SSAF funded service.
You can check your allocated and remaining minutes in the YourTutor Dashboard. Simply sign into YourTutor via vUWS. If you use up your monthly allocation, don't panic! Your allocation will be reset when the new month starts, which also means unused minutes won't be rolled over. So Study Smart and use YourTutor minutes wisely.
