Do I have to sign up for the cohorts?
You are not required to signup for or attend any cohorts.
However, we are beginning to get data that shows students who do attend the live cohorts have a higher success rate on first attempts on the OA than those who do not attend the live cohorts. Again, this is preliminary data but it is encouraging us to think the Express cohorts are beneficial.
All the materials from the Express Cohorts are available in the COS Resources and Recordings. If you can not attend the live cohorts, but sure to include a “watching” of all the recordings of the live sessions in your OA preparations.
