Description

The Stats Mentor project aims to offer peer mentoring bespoke to Psychology and Statistics Anxiety. An evaluation of this programme was conducted via in depth qualitative semi structured interviews post academic year. Results indicate internal motivations for becoming a mentor. Mentors concerns related to unreasonable expectations from mentees alongside their own time and confidence. Mentees asked for a mentor to decrease their levels of anxiety and discussed the beneficial impact leading up to the exam. Findings are discussed alongside implications.
