    Recently I have been really demotivated and haven't been turning up for lessons. I have had a previous meeting saying that I really are at risk of being kicked off the course. I have already taken a year out and I am now restarting. Therefore, I don't want to retake another year . I am now really worried and scared, I was thinking to email the person who deals with attendance, But what should I say?

    Help please

    Tell them how you've been feeling and they might be able to help you or identify why you feel demotivated. It might also be worth speaking to support staff at the college or any counsellor they have there, especially if you've been showing signs of depression (demotivation and avoiding responsibilities can be a sign of it).

    What can you say in your defence? If you have a genuine reason for not turning up, then say what that is. If you haven't, then accept that you are going to have to take the consequence of your actions. If you are unmotivated about turning up, then perhaps it is time to reconsider what you want to do with your life. Perhaps taking exams is not what you want to do. You are going to have to accept that you can't have it both ways - you either want to take exams and therefore have to turn up, or you don't want to take exams and therefore need to accept that the college isn't going to keep you on its books for no reason. Try asking if there is some kind of counsellor you can talk to to help you make up your mind about what you want and suggest ways in which you can achieve it.

    Your attitude to your studies could have cost you. There's not a lot you can do apart from turn up every day, and start putting some effort in. If you're demotivated, maybe repeating the year is for the best.

    besides the contrition aspects aboveand assuming you have decided you wnat to continue, then I'd be giving them a clear idea of changes id make to ensure improved atendance and participation.

    At the moment the fault for not attenting appears to be all yours, so accpet it and like a grown up show them it matters to stay on the course and you have the motivation to do so.

    If the course isnt right, then be honest and say so.
