Students must attend one activity from each section.
Late assignments will have 20% deducted for each day late, unless prior arrangement has been made. Please contact the course co-ordinator (preferably well in advance) if you have genuine difficulties meeting submission dates.The final 3-hr exam, worth 40%, will cover all the course material. Any “CIVIL/UC” approved calculator is allowed. Students with accepted Aegrotats for an exam may be assessed on the basis of their other assignment marks or they may be required to undertake a special oral examination.While a minimum 50% overall grade for the year is the usual benchmark for passing, to guarantee a pass in the course students must also achieve at least 40% in the total internal coursework (assignments) and the final exam. Students who fail to reach all of these criteria will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.Repeating students should discuss with the Course Coordinator what coursework they need to repeat. If desired, they may be able to bring forward any or all of their internal coursework from the previous year, but this must be confirmed first. All students will sit the final exam.
