    In our school, we have electronic registers, to see who is here or not here for class. In addition, in the electronnic registers, it can see if you were in registration or not, and if you attended any previous classes in the day. Therefore, it is easy to see/track if anybody is skipping lessons.

    I'm not quite sure how I've managed it really! I have convinced people to twag lessons to come shopping with me and things, so it isn't like I'm being all moral about it or anything... and all my lessons next week are going to be parties, so it isn't looking like it's going to happen!

    not at school, i didn't see the point, i'd much rather spend my time with my friends than wander around a town.

    at university i miss loads of lectures, but thats different.

    Who doesn't?

    My attendance has been sliding progressively this year. I usually miss at least two lessons per week. It's sort of got to the point where I consider personal study a more useful way of using my time what with exams around the corner.

    At school I didn't miss any for skiving, until my final year there, where I decided the BBQ in the sun by the river sounded like much more fun.

    Of course, trying to explain the sun tan was not something I thought of in advance. On the other hand, my parents just laughed. It was fairly irrelevant skiving by then anyway.

    Skipped a load of lectures in uni - just because they were too dull to sit through. Let's face it, when you get a lecturer who stands, with their back to the audience, reading their own slides word for word, there really isn't much point.

    Yep.My attendance was terrible in my AS year then I got my results and was annoyed that I could have done better.So during A2's I've been attending and very rarely skiving(maybe 2-3 days all year....) but yes,as someone else said,recently I've been finding staying at home revising a lot more productive so I've been missing about one lesson each day haha!

    Same at college, we have to swipe into lessons.. God still people end up skipping half the time. I do alot.. But Ema truth be told has kept me on the straight and narrow. Mostly.
