    Yes. It's stupid because I always seem to miss important lectures or ones where there wasn't a handout. :pinch:

    Yeah a fair share, stupid like but once you've missed one and realise you haven't missed a lot it just gets easier and easier to miss them.
    Nothing to be proud of but pretty standard i guess.

    I did it TOO MUCH last term. This term I haven't at all, at least not because of silly things like oversleeping or hangovers, but I had to miss an entire day this week because I felt so ill... it happened to be the busiest day of my week, too, so I felt really bad about it. Grrrrrrrrrr.

    My timetable these last two weeks was very sparse due to resits. I still managed to not go to 5 lectures though. (I had no resits cos Im brilliant)

    everytime i read the replies saying they've skipped alot of lectures, i die a bit inside

    i know its not the same but i've only ever bunked a lesson once, from years 7 to 12 so far, i can't miss lessons otherwise i feel wrong and like theres something missing lmao
    Its very very very different. I didn't miss any school either, but I probably miss half my lectures at uni. At school you have your parents, your teachers, your classmates who will all notice if you don't turn up. At uni its different, theres little personal contact with your teachers, your parents aren't around, and your friends will likely not care.

    I made one out of thirteen lectures this week...

    I did however make all my seminars. There are registers, so what do you expect? :shifty:

    Never. I am so much of a goody two shoes you can't imagine. I'm the person that will actually sprint down the middle of campus to avoid being late. Tbf though I really struggle so I'd be ****ed if I missed any.

    True but it can be better for you to use the resources that you pay for and learn at home instead of going to lectures, for example. Some of the lecture courses where pretty slow going and would post the notes up online anyway - I'd say it's fine to miss lectures so long as you catch the work up.
    There are a lot of people on my course who miss lectures regularly (well, not a lot, but I am shocked that it's more than five people) and don't do any work at home. I'm not sure how they're gonna pass the first year, but some seem to think alcohol is a solution even for that.

    To the OP: I have missed one lecture so far and that was because my bike was broken and I couldn't be bothered to catch the bus and be late

    True, I could easily skip all of them and do just fine, but I'd feel guilty. :p:

    In first year I missed a fair few subsid lectures, but attended most of my core module lectures and all labs, tutorials etc.

    Second year I missed very few lectures (ocassional Tuesdays as labs were more important than lectures, and one Wednesday 9 as I had a class test in the next slot).

    This year (after a change of course within the department, as I hated Medicinal Chemistry), I have attended every lecture, workshop, tutorial and most lab sessions (as we can pick our own hours in labs this year).

    Hmm, I'll have to update that. What I meant was, why would I want to either show off about how well I did, or have all the A*A*A*A*A* people pity me? Like I said, I'm not very clever at all, and I'm trying hard to keep up so that I can feel happy and relieved when I pass, but the sort of people who would actually be interested in knowing what grades I got are in my experience not the sort of people I get on well with.
