    Hello i havent used the site before so i probably havent chosen the correct to put the question under but anyway
    This is my first year of college and im on EMA, my attendance is kinda bad, like 70% last semester, so sometimes i dont get the full £60 EMA.
    My question is will my attendance this year affect my chances of getting EMA when i re-enroll next year ?
    thankyou

    Don't you mean bursary? EMA doesn't exist anymore and no, your current attendance can't effect next years payments.

    Huh.. I'm not aware of any bursaries that college students get. I might be wrong though.
