    Does your attendance rate affect your ATAR?

    I haven't been attending lessons much recently.
    Will this affect my HSC & ATAR?
    I attend a single sex, government school and they haven't said much about attendance rate apart from illness/misadventure forms :/

    As long as it isn't below like lesson requirements to get a N-award, your attendance rate won't affect it

    Yes it will affect your ATAR because you're missing every lesson your teachers are having

    Are you on par or ahead of your peers? If not, then your lack of attendance may be impeding on your studies, which by extension, will affect your HSC and hence your ATAR.

    Well, I've been studying over the topics at home by myself.
    I will be attending lessons more regularly from now on, provided everyone's comments.

    Keep in mind that you are also required to meet these 3 requirements:
    - followed the course developed or endorsed by BOSTES
    - applied themself with diligence and sustained effort to the set tasks and experiences provided in the course by the school
    - achieved some or all of the course outcomes.

    The second one is where attendance may fall under. If you're consistently not at school, the Principal can deem you haven't been at school enough to have achieved the set tasks and experiences. If you don't meet these 3 requirements, you may be denied course completion, which basically means you need to repeat the course.
