Attendance is absolutely mandatory and poor attendance almost always affects the students’ grades. Courses in conjunction with the Ministry of Economy (including Graphics, and Web Development) have 85% minimum attendance to earn the certificate.
Students with excellent attendance usually excel and we usually recommend these students for jobs. It’s difficult for us to recommend students with poor attendance for job opportunities.
