No point of attending lectures ! Watch

Yea unfortunately this is the case although it was quite promising in the open day that I attended before choosing my current uni.
Could u give me any advice relating to transferring?
The thing is that my uni is close to my house and I'm worried of transfering to another uni with a good reputation but ending up suffering from the same issue (my current uni has a quite good reputation but this doesn't match at all with reality). So in this case I would be having tow issues of distance and quality of teaching.
Besides this could be a temporary problem, if you go on to new modules with different lecturers who teach differently...
Or you could just not go to lectures.
Read the notes from the powerpoint as I find that quite useful. Then, just do practice questions.
There are also many online resources that you can use like Youtube where there is probably an explanation for pretty much everything (everything I've needed so far anyway).
I did maths at Nottingham and most of the lecturers would just basically read out what was on the slides as opposed to trying to explain things so that was frustrating and I ended up not bothering to go to most of them as a result. I would usually watch the lectures back and slow them down a lot so I could work at my own pace as I felt that would help. It deffo made things difficult but doesn't mean u can't do good. I only went to 3 hours of the lecturers in autumn term of my final year and still got a 2:1 so I wouldn't worry too much
I have been told that attendance is essential for getting a reference from ur tutors
