    I'm currently doing the Access to HE Diploma. The head of department often mentions that the attendance of the department is lower than the college targets. She says that the college have the right to not give students their diplomas if their attendance is below the college target, 90%.

    I'm guessing these are just empty threats because she's being nagged about attendance by her boss, and is using this as a scare tactic so her department looks good. While I think it's very unlikely they'd do this anyway (my attendance will be something like 86% by the end of the year), I thought I'd ask if this was even legal anyway

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
