    Not unless your referee specifically mentions it when you apply.
    Your attendance isn't too bad anyway.

    Given you're the one paying to attend; they don't tend to be over your shoulder about it.

    After all, they see you as an adult and you can make your own informed decisions about attending lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials etc. You're the one missing out if you don't attend

    When applying your college will usually send over your attendance either for each of your courses separately, or all together. However, unless it at some ridiculously low number and any of your references mention it, 88% is not an issue. You do have to remember that unis will never know what your AS attendance was. They will only know the attendance during the academic year you will be applying in.

    After all, only reason the uni would look at your attendance is to see if you'll be bothered to attend uni. If you attendance will be eg. 30%, they might question giving you an offer as they might assume since you barely attended college, you might barely ever attend uni
