    Alternate Grading Scheme: Assignments 15%, Class Tests 55%, Final Exam 30%.
    The scheme which gives the higher grade will be used in each case.

    Note: There will be no makeups for missed tests. If you miss a test and provide a certificate indicating clearly that you were unable to write the test for reasons beyond your personal control, the weight of the test will be transferred to the final exam. Otherwise, the mark for the missed test will be 0.

    The last date to drop the course without academic penalty is November 9. It is extremely important to realistically assess your course performance prior to this date.
