Midterm grade An approximate letter grade will be assigned by the end of the seventh week, usually based on your performance in your first two exams, to give you an idea of your status in the course. The letter grade you receive at mid-term is no guarantee of your final grade. Final grades will be assigned using guidelines established in previous semesters, but there is no strict grading curve. Exams: There will be four 1-hour exams given during the scheduled quiz sessions on certain Tuesdays (see page 3) at 3:30 p.m. in SGM 123. The exams are given only at the scheduled time. There are no makeup exams. You cannot take exams at any other time . The material covered on each exam will be announced in lectures prior to that exam. Bring an ID . Exams should be written in non- erasable ink (no pencil) . The one-hour time period will be strictly enforced. No one will be allowed to enter the exam room late or to leave early. An answer key for each exam will be posted later on the Chem 105a web page. Graded exams will be returned to you by your T.A. during your scheduled lab. It is important that you learn your T.A.'s full name and write it on all papers you turn in. If you find a substantial grading error, please follow the procedure on regrading outlined below. Exam review sessions will be held in SGM 123 during the Tuesday quiz period one week prior to each exam.
