    There is 25 on my uni course, the usual class size is about 10. People just don't prioritize lectures. Is this the same for everyone else?

    My course has compulsory 100% attendance, cant miss more than 5 days worth of lectures a year so everybody is always there.
    However, for my HND from the second year onwards, around half the people were missing on a bad day.

    mine was too big to count, but attendance was poor in the mornings in lectures. It didn't seem too bad in the afternoons.

    I finished last month, but this was the case on my course, we had a few have to take a year out due to illness for this reason!

    Generally it's 100% other than the one or two off ill. Most of my lectures are mandatory and missing 2 or more, without good reason, means that you fail the module.

    That said, I've only got two lectures a week. :lol:

    Wow that's tough! My lecturer always says they can't do that because it's not a professional/nhs bursary course... I wonder why it's different for you?

    They said that they do it to reflect the attendance requirement of the professional environment. :erm:

    My course is around 150 people (Physics first year), and although the lectures are compulsory, they don't record attendance in any way so especially for Wednesday 9:30 lectures (Tuesday is the big night out round by me), there can be as few as 70 people turning up. In fairness, it's very easy for us to catch up as all lectures are recorded and posted on our virtual learning environment.

    It's a recent thing... Our mature students have been good with it though - we've even got one mature student on our course who travels an hour and a half between her home with kids and uni. Frequently in meltdown, but we love her and support her!

    Oh wow that's impressive I wish my course was like that :') although there are some people who just moan about wanting to go home all day. If there's group work they're like 'let's do it really quick and go home' and when the teacher talks about finishing times they say 2pm (we finish at 3:30 T_T). They don't get their own way but it's really annoying xD

    I hate people who ***** about being in all day. We have one lecture which can be 3 hours, can be 9am to 9pm (group pressure challenge). Some people ***** to hell about tthe latter. Nope. Not today thank you.
