    Or you could stop making excuses and put some effort in for once in your life.

    Commuting is awful but why do you go to a college that's 3hrs away? :eek: If you do not wish to disrupt your studies explain your personal circumstances to the head of the department and look into whether your timetable can be tweaked or other arrangement can be reached. If you wish to remain in college you have to communicate with your tutors and head of department so they have a full understanding of your situation and thus do not attribute your absences to laziness and total disregard for your course(s). Good luck!

    It's not really.

    You need to find a college closer.

    It takes me nearly 3 hours to get home and my attendance is 100 %- there's no excuse but laziness.

    Your college has a point, if you couldnt be bothered attending a college on time that was an hour away why on earth would you triple this
    I go to a college about 45 minutes away so not bad but ive never been late and have only missed one day which was for illness last year.
    You need to find a college close to you and get a move on in the morning to get there on time, it isnt hard

    Edit: also no your college isnt 'crap' at least not for the reasons you have gave. It is perfectly reasonable to expect students to have attendence much better than 60% without extreme circumstances. They wont change your testtable (assuming you mean timetable) because it is your responsibility to go to a college that you can get to for these lessons

    They can't change the timetable just for you.

    It's funny how you claim to be an adult now, but in your last thread when I said you should start acting like an adult, you made the excuse that you are not a grown man yet. You can't have your cake and eat it too, if you want to be treated like and adult you need to act like one.

    Honestly you are pathetic. Take some responsibility.

    College is optional, but if you're going to enrol then don't waste their time with being late. It doesn't matter if they're strict with times or whatever, you chose to go there now you should abide by their rules. If you don't want to go then do something else.

    3 hour commute for college? Better off going to a closer college and btw you seem to have a bad attitude. If you really don't want to go and get an education then don't pursue what is your interested in.

    Your age doesn't matter. You're just wasting their time and yours too. At 19 you're surely mature enough to get to college on time?
