For students on a student visa it is VERY IMPORTANT to have good attendance. Students with poor attendance usually cannot get another student visa. Students with less than 80% attendance will also not receive a graduation certificate. If you are not going to come to class you will be marked ABSENT. You will be marked absent for moving flat and other personal problems. You will be marked absent if you miss more than one hour of class. Both morning and afternoon classes count toward attendance.
