Non-attendance questionnaire 234 PGRs sent questionnaire 94 responded (40%) Some comments received: I wrote it in the wrong place in my diary. I am working at being more organised with planning my time. I did not realize I had a place booked. I woke up ill this Monday and was feeling too weak to attend. It was a cold. Was booked at the same time with another course I am auditing. Was booked for a supervising meeting at the same time, and was informed in the same morning. I wake up very late on that day due to lack of sleep the day before. Alarm clock failed to ring. All apologies for not being able to come, but I completely forgot about it. TOO BUSY TO CHECK S.
