No, try to book one early in the week and the other midweek or later. If you get extra help for a task or worksheet complete the worksheet or task and get it checked later in the week for your full participation marks. Do not book 2 appointments in a row or back to back on the same day!

It is important to try the work yourself and if you need help, sign up for help with questions. If you attempt to complete the work and mostly complete it you will receive full marks. If you do not try the work and or complete only half of it you will not receive full marks. If you are confused about how to begin the worksheet or task, you can get help and complete it for later in the week.
