Hi everyone,

I'm glad to share my views on the current topic.

Attendance of students is not mandatory. If made so, students can't devote much time to identifying their interests and potentials and may not be able to enhance their skill sets that might be essential for their future. We live in an advanced technology era where students can learn from different sources that can't even be provided by their college and lecturers.

Moreover, students feel pressurized and lack interest in attending classes if they find lectures are not so gd.
So attendance shouldn't be made compulsory!
Thanks once again.

Have a fantabulous day!;).

Hello everyone,

As per my opinion,

1) I think attendance is not important too much because in our country most of college teaches students the syllabus and it is not enough to crack any FANG companies or even others.

2) If attendance will be necessary the student can't groom in class it is a harsh reality. Until and unless anyone starts devoting time to themself. Because coding competitions are not there in every college so students only have good academics but not applicable skills (any programming language).

3) Any student who gives time to themself then they can't do both things properly.

4) I think it should be that much necessary that no students get bad marks in any subject of their academics.

Good Afternoon Everyone.

Today topic is very important for each and every student "Is compulsory attendance really needed in college?".

In my point of view, attendance is important in college it totally depends on the college teachers suppose if your college has good experience teachers then each and every lecture is important and any student doesn't watch Youtube Videos to study and utilise the time correctly place like practice the coding on computer revise the topic day by day that why attendance is important if your college has experienced teachers.

Hi everyone!

In my opinion, college attendance should not be compulsory as we all know that we are living in the digital world and students can get top-level education from youtube and other websites which actually most colleges failed to provide.

In engineering, all are learning concepts from youtube. So if you will impose attendance issues in college that will result in a lack of concept clearance in students.

In my opinion, the rule of compulsory attendance should not be implemented. It actually led the student to develop reluctance and feeling pressurized. Today's world requires a smart and creative individual. To fulfil today's world's needs and to grow their skill sets, individual needs to give time to themselves so that they can identify their potential and desires.

Field of interest and do the necessary hard work in that direction. Colleges and universities should realize this situation and set students free on this thing. The best thing, they can set a minimum desired attendance rule that should be fulfilled by the students instead of the compulsory attendance rule.

In my opinion, the compulsory attendance of 70% in college is really needed for all students because they can gain their knowledge and learn important things. If there are no compulsory classes in college may be students are using their college as a park whenever they come whenever they do not come in college. Teachers should make thought about students and that is an educational place so there is a particular discipline that should obey to all students.

Hi, my name is Nick Biraori.

My opinion about the topic of mandatory class attendance.

I think the world is headed in a different direction as opposed to the two decades behind us.

The world is headed in a technological and skilful era. Class attendance should take 50 % of the total lessons. Online classes and research methods should be more implemented in this kind of era.

Professional courses should also come in handy in regard to the type of courses for each particular student. Let the world go In a route of doing instead of cramming.

Thanks a lot.

Hello, every one!

In my opinion, there should be a minimum percentage of attendance mandated by colleges for the overall growth of students. There is always two sides for a coin. If there is no compulsory attendance then students would be busy in roaming with friends and watching movies. They will be distracted from the goal. On the other hand, if the student has to sit in a classroom for all the time then would not be qualitative but rather quantitative. So there should be balance between holidays and classes.

Hi everyone,

According to my point of view, there should not be regular attendance to the students. Because attending college on regular basis makes them qualitative, not quantitative. To increase the quatitiveness of students, college should not be compulsory.

Nowadays, in today's, students can do his/her studies on their own basis by taking the help of technology and clearing concepts. So I think college should not be compulsory as 75%.

Hi everyone,

I respect everyone's thinking but in my opinion, it shouldn't be a compulsory option. 30% attendance should do mandatory só students will get more time for their studies and if it actually happens so students will only come to clarify their doubts but Causing 70% attendance or more pressurises a person to come in college. If a person wants to build up a start-up or do internships, it is difficult for him or her to miss the chance. College should make students qualitative not quantitive. But I respect every college's decision why 75% attendance should do mandatory but I think, What we are now some of us will be professors or will be in the higher authorities at a time so at that time we should think about that what you faced when you are in the college. We all students want to make our future better so at that time when you are in the higher authorities you should think about that.
