Additional information on mode of examinationThe final note of each student will be determined from:

50-Minute Midterm Examination: 25%
120-Minute Final Session Exam: 75%

The final note will depend on the student's performance relative to the rest of the class.

If a student misses the midterm exam due to a documented case of illness, family emergency, or other legitimate absence, it may be possible that this midterm score is dropped. In that case, the final exam will count 100% toward the student's final note.

The midterm exam is closed book, with each student only allowed to bring a standard scientific calculator. An announcement will be made before the exam begins whether this calculator will be necessary. For the final session examination, each student will be allowed to bring two sheets of A4 paper with hand-written notes on both sides of each sheet. Each student can put whatever information they want on these pages, but it must be written or drawn by their own hand. No scanning, printing, or photocopying is allowed. Other than these two sheets, the final session exam is closed book. Each student may also bring a standard scientific calculator. An announcement will be made before the exam begins whether this calculator will be necessary.
Written aidsFor allowed aids, see "Additional information on mode of examination" section. For the midterm exam and the final session exam, devices with internet access and mini computers are not allowed.
This information can be updated until the beginning of the semester; information on the examination timetable is binding.
