    We have a huge deadline on the 22nd of April and we need at least a 40 for a pass (First year degree). There's only 4 of us because the other 12 dropped out after finding the course too difficult. Luckily for me, the other 3 people aside from me have been in all my classes for the last 3 years so i know them really well. Trouble is one has a mild learning difficulty and struggles to concentrate, the other has a sick parent and struggles to balance things out and the third is just not very good to be honest.....at what he does.

    But they all really enjoy it- just keep falling behind. I spend 2 full days a week grouping everyone together and acting as a second teacher but without actually giving them the answers. I've caught them up but i'm still worried they may not even get 40 this time around....

    There's only 6 in year 2 and maybe 8 in year 3 and even they are struggling with passing so what could i do to help out? I know i'ts not my problem and i know i'm not their teacher but there's no harm in helping a classmate out, right?

    Indeed there's no harm in helping, it sounds like you do a lot already.
