    They don't
    Unless your reference writer mentions it for whatever reason, they'll never know

    I swear my attendance is worse than yours. I think teachers use attendance just as a threat - I mean universities most likely get 1000+ applications per year and will not have time to look into your attendance - apparently its not really stated on your ucas form either, unless your attendance is mentioned in your reference i wouldn't worry. Especially if it is a school 6th form they are most likely using threats because it affects their attendance figures on league tables etc. that's what they only seem to care about nowadays. seriously i wouldn't worry too much.

    Thats so true, our sixth form secretary always bangs on about attendance. I mean as long as im not effected by my attendance when i apply then thats a whole lot of stress taken off of me. thanks anyway
