It depends on the course...math (1za3) in first year had tutorials, but its up to you if you wanna go or not (no marks or anything)...physics (1d03&1e03) on the other hand, had marked tutorials (7.5% of your overall mark).
For physics we actually had a quiz and had to hand in an assignment (it was done in groups) at the end of the tutorial. For math, the ta was standing there the whole time talking or taking up homework questions. In first year engineering, tutorials were mandatory (not for c03 but I heard now its mandatory to go).
I guess tutorial attendance depends on the program and the course.
