The Stats Mentor project aims to offer peer mentoring bespoke to Psychology and Statistics Anxiety. Evaluation of the pilot intervention was conducted via in-depth qualitative semi-structured interviews post academic year. Initial 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. The findings helped secure a second year of funding with evaluation due to occur in March 2018.
