So #15 is now first place? :s That's going to be tricky to plan out for competitions. Not sure your school's system, but drop the courses now and petition for a Late Withdrawal? Take the academic penalty, plead your case in front of the panel or whatever, and fight your way clear. Obviously you should have known your own schedule, or realize during practical/lab sessions how you were not on the class list.. but they can't just swap all your courses like that.. didn't you pay and choose those specifically? Total BS @ #31. You have online registration, or paper work, something. If the prof/teach decides to swap the section times then they should have told you then too. I have never heard of this happening here or anywhere, and even small changes to my courses will have my prof or the registrar e-mail me. They do whatever they want and people start going elsewhere. Again, you paid money for it. It's more of a business transaction than schooling because you are paying for what you get. Whatever, don't let them do it. Fight it.

if you are too dumb to realize that an administrative screwup can be handled more effectively than just calculating in the failed classes as normal, there isn't much point in attending grad school in the first place.

I was about to say that Colleges don't check attendance and it just matters if you show up for class when you have tests or similar things. Plus the classes are huge so you could bs and say you were there. Then I realized it was belgium :/

um not all college classes are like that...every semester I have had at least 1 class with mandatory attendance, and this is usually even more common when you start taking classes for your major. No wonder so many ignorant high schoolers call "FAKE!1111 ZOMG STFU" on every FML.

I agree with that somewhat, but chances are that the majority (even if just 51%) of classes don't check and so my comment applied to the majority of classes. Also ignorant highschoolers saying "FAKE!1111 ZOMG STFU?" Which one of us is using proper grammar right now? Oh right, me. Also I never said fake I just stated something that is true. Good try though, better luck next time.

Big lecture classes usually don't take attendance, but there are a few small classes that do. It's really hard to take attendance in a class of 200. What most of my profs do to make sure people come to class is have random pop quizzes. In one of my classes the prof doesn't take attendance, but we have a quiz everyday over the readings that were assigned.

I go to a small university where there's only about 20 students per class. If you miss more than 7 days of class you automatically fail. So yeah. Some schools DO check attendence. But still, OP, didn't you register/verify your classes on the first day? Every school I know of does that. You have to sign verifying that you're taking the courses written on the paper. And I've NEVER heard of them just randomly putting you into a class that you haven't agreed to sign up for.

#4, I go to a small private school where the largest class I have ever attended was 40 people. Most classes are around 20. And almost all of the profs take attendance. And I live in the US.

Yeah, if they take attendance they or you must have realised that you were not on the list, unless they didn't update the list... In which case you could say you weren't even on the list of the classes you were meant to be attending supposedly.
