    Because walking to university (40 mins each way for me) isn't particularly an efficient use of my time for a one hour lecture that becomes available as an audio/video recording 5 minutes after the lecture finishes. Which is why I missed one of my 16 hours of contact time this week.
    Fair enough! I can understand your situation.

    They have to submit attendance registers to admin at UW for all compulsory lectures. That said in my third year, I've only got one module with a compulsory lecture every Wednesday and then the others have been as and when they need to call a session.
    Oh wow... our lectures are only monitored if the lecturer specifically hands out a register - happened once in all of my lectures this semester and last, and he even gave us pre-warning...!

    How can you spend 9k a year and then skip lectures?
    Sounds mad to me
    because it's not important and revising lecture slide and materials at home + seminars benefit me WAY MORE than attending useless lecture?

    If I know the lecture is going to be rubbish, I don't go :lol: that counts for the majority of my lectures though.

    My attendance has been pretty terrible this semester because I've just been feeling ill all the damn time.

    In four years I've skipped two lectures - one I was vomiting and the other I was at a flat viewing. Sure, I haven't always given my full attention, but I need to get my money's worth
