    My mate is involved in an evaluation of Keele's attendance policies and given that he knows I use this site, has asked me to post a question in this thread about other schools' attendance policies. If some of you could answer the following questions about your schools, that'd be awesome.

    A) Which sessions are compulsory?
    B) What happens if you miss a compulsory session?
    C) What happens if you continually miss compulsory sessions?
    D) Do you feel the system is appropriate?

    A) Which sessions are compulsory? Technically all of them
    B) What happens if you miss a compulsory session? Nothing
    C) What happens if you continually miss compulsory sessions? If you have 10 registered absences in a term (so self-certified for lectures, or something like placement where there are registers) then you go to an attendance lecture by our Course Director. I don't know what happens if you miss 10+ sessions more than once
    D) Do you feel the system is appropriate?
    Nope. Because it's so laxly monitored people get away with missing so much stuff. And there was one lecture that about 20 of us went to, and during that lecture anatomy sign up for next year was released. So basically if you didn't go then you had an advantage over those who did, because anatomy sign up is first come first served. Although it does make me laugh when people can't do our paper reviews, when it's basically because they've missed every single research methods lecture :rolleyes:

    A) Which sessions are compulsory? All timetabled sessions
    B) What happens if you miss a compulsory session?Email notification
    C) What happens if you continually miss compulsory sessions?Depends, if you miss more than 2 DR sessions without good reason you are not meant to be able to sit that exam, how much they follow that I don't know, as for other sessions probably bad things but I have never found out myself probably permament record. Oh and very strict on signing others in who are absent, get caught - one of your 3 strikes before FTP hearing. I have heard mssing stuff means you might get resits taken away but not sure this is true...
    D) Do you feel the system is appropriate? Not really although can be a little harsh witht he signing in thing, what pisses me off more is people turning up late for no good reason, either turn up on time or don't bother

    Peninsula

    A) PBL, Jigsaw and Clinical Skills are compulsory. LSRC, EBP, Workshops and placements are highly recommended and registered. Lectures are recommended but not compulsory

    B)
    (Original post by PCMD)
    Your attendance throughout the course at teaching and learning opportunities will be monitored and considered as a component of your assessment in the course modules. Attendance is assessed as a demonstration of appropriate personal and professional behaviour, and thus of fitness to practise.
    C)
    (Original post by PCMD)
    In cases where the student has more than three absences in a six-month
    period, School administrators should liaise with the Pastoral Tutor (BMBS). It may be appropriate to ask the student whether there are any personal concerns or fears which would benefit from extra support. The Pastoral Tutor may also wish to remind the student about the various support agencies available to the School, which may be suitable. A referral to the Occupational Health Service may be considered.
    D) It is appropriate for their policy, but we sometimes feel that more sessions should be made compulsory.

    Results day tomorrow Not looking forward to that!

    In other news I really have no idea what to do about student finance with regards to an iBSc...seemed to get a mixed view on what to do! Some people have been told to write an official letter to them explaining the whole iBSc process, whilst I've only changed the course code online (and added an extra year of studies) and applied for max of everything as usual... At the moment it says £0 tuition fees

    I've phoned up and the guy said just wait til the assessment stuff goes through and take it from there

    Then again should I end up failing tomorrow this would all have been pointless :rolleyes:

    A) Which sessions are compulsory? In first three years, tutorials and wards are compulsory, lectures are sort of compulsory (no attendance register but tis noticed if you never attend)
    B) What happens if you miss a compulsory session? Email from admin asking where you were.
    C) What happens if you continually miss compulsory sessions? Verbal warnings, escalating to FtP disciplinary if necessary (have seen it happen once this year). If you miss more than a certain percentage of GP tutorials you aren't allowed to sit the exam/submit coursework. If you miss too many clinical skills sessions, you have to do 'remedial classes'.
    D) Do you feel the system is appropriate?
    Yeh. Know plenty of people who think lectures should be completely voluntary attendance, however.
