Candidates perspective

An example of how the student account looks (when the visibility of the tabs is reduced) is shown in the picture below. Users will only be able to see the default tabs.

Kindly note that this applies only to accessing particular pages from the “My profile” page. It will not affect access to those pages from any other part of the application if the user has appropriate permissions.
