    in your examples, "per" and "as per" are both correct to use. it is a matter of preference. (i prefer "per" because it is one word less and mean the same thing)

    it is correct to use either "per" or "as per" if you mean 'according to' regardless of its position in the sentence. examples:

    "Per" the teacher's instructions, the students wrote their reports.

    "As per" the teacher's instructions, the students wrote their reports.

    The patient rested for a week "per" the doctor's advice.

    The patient rested for a week "as per" the doctor's advice.

    however, it is incorrect to use "as per" if you mean 'for every' or 'by each'. in this case, only "per" is appropriate to use. examples: 3 meals per day, 50 miles per hour

    Sounds to me like it should be "As per" not Per. I think it just sounds better! (:

    As per. *per* is used in this way: There were only 3 crayons per child.
