    98%. All of those are going to uni days. Recently had an unrecorded day (for some reason) where I went to hospital but they said I was in.

    My attendance is around 89%-92%. Somewhere around that.
    This term has been my first term so far where I haven't missed a day.... Until I fell ill today, when I had a mock exam (UGH). I got sent home period 1 which is absolutely annoying as I was looking forward for the mock exam.

    The school act like they care about attendance, but they've never followed me up about it so I assume they let me slide a bit due to health problems this year.

    As for taking days off to revise? I think my parents would notice... That wouldn't go down too well :/

    It's like 80 something. I haven't attended the last 3 days lol. It's pointless now that we've finished the course and I work better at home.

    My sixthform is so extra when it comes to attendance esp now, if you miss a lesson they send a text message to your parents after the register has been done and they have noticed you're not in. It's especially annoying for some subjects like English, we've finished the syllabus and now we're revising but I prefer to revise independently.

    So far for the first year its 100% but i know in the second year ill have to go to uni open days, which isnt good because if i miss ajy lessons i fear itll severely compromise my chances of a good grade. But yeh, i get study leave, but because my chemistry class are so far behind we are having to spend most of it back at school learning the course

    At my school, university open days are encouraged and we get authorised absence. I would recommend visiting universities this year as in the second year, i.e September, it will become harder and you'd rather visit them before everyone else.

    how is your attendance going?
    are you going to be `ill` to stay off to revise?
    do you get study leave?
    I have 100% attendance in 3 lessons since September 2015 and 99% attendance in one, ive missed half a lesson since starting college

    My school is very concerned about attendance, even for sixth formers, so my attendance is 100%. Each half term they provide a list of your attendance for each day, and if there are any times you are absent - even an afternoon - they'll chase you up on it.

    I could pretend to be ill, and I know some people who have gotten away with that, but my parents wouldn't like it, and it'd be a massive pain to catch up on all the work I'd missed. I'd have to find all the teachers, get the lesson work and homework, and complete it ASAP. So if I missed a day, I wouldn't actually be missing any work.

    Thankfully I do get study leave as an A2 student, though it doesn't start until 28th May. As most people have at least one AS resit exam, generally before study leave, I'd prefer it to start early/mid-May.

    Not bad, but I've missed a few days since of my insomnia. E.g. I wouldn't have had ANY hours sleep at all and physically couldn't make it to school.
