ADVANCE INFORMATION ON FINAL EXAM PHILOSOPHY 162 WINTER, 2008 The final exam for this class will take place on Monday, March 17, from 11:30 a.m to 2:30 p.m., in Sequoyah 148, our regular classroom. That’s soon. The final exam will consist of two parts. You will have 1.5 hours for each part of the exam. Each part counts equally for purposes of grading. The final exam will focus more on the material we have covered since the midterm exam. No use of books or notes is permitted during this exam. If you are taking the course on a PASS/NOT PASS basis, you must get (1) a C- or better on the final examination as well as (2) an overall C- average on all course work in order to achieve a PASS grade, with one exception: If you have an A- or better average on the midterm exam and writing assignment, and are enrolled on a PASS/NOT PASS basis, you need not take the final exam in order to earn a PASS grade. The first hour and a half of the exam will consist of short-answer questions testing comprehension of required readings. You will have some choice as to which questions to answer.
