對於不參加考試的學生來說，罷工行動在封鎖期間造成了同樣的遠程學習問題，一個人將其描述為 "有點痛苦"，另一個人說這是 "令人沮喪的"。
Many students are on study leave and others are able to take advantage of buses or can drive but for others the train is the only option.
Guy Francis, assistant principal of Brockenhurst College, said: "Those who are affected who can't come in by train, we're putting on other forms of transport for them, in some cases minibuses and taxis, so they can get in for their exams.
"We've also learnt a lot from the pandemic so we know how to deliver blended learning, although the best learning takes place in the classroom we can still have very effective learning remotely."
"If you would normally start a car journey at 07:45 to arrive at 08:30, please start this journey no later than 05:45." the college advised.
For students not taking exams, the strike action created the same issues with remote learning during lockdown, one described it as a "bit of a pain" and another said it was "frustrating".
The National Union of Students, which represents those in higher and further education, said: "The responsibility for disruption caused to students during an already stressful time sits squarely with rail firm managers and the government.
Treasury minister Simon Clarke ruled out the direct involvement of government in the talks and said the railway would have to "financially sustain itself".
