attendance for UCAS

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I am just wondering does attendance matter after you have received an offer from unis? For example, I think I will hear by from unis by april the latest so does it matter if I decide to ditch college for a week in around May time since the offer is already be made.


    UCAS doesn't record your attendance. The only way universities will know is if your school included it in the reference (which it shouldn't do unless it's good, teachers shouldn't say anything negative in the reference). My school used to threaten us by saying UCAS knew our attendance to make sure we'd come in. At the end of the year my form teacher told us they were lying about that!

    If you don't want to go in it won't make a difference to your offer (although just make sure it doesn't affect your grades!)
