Letter grades will be awarded according to total points accumulated as follows: A = 338-375 B = 300-337 C = 263-299 D = 225-262 *FINAL EXAM SCORING ALTERNATIVES: Because we do not offer make-up opportunities for missed interim exams, we have designed the final exam to be comprehensive and to serve as a replacement score for one missed or low score interim exam. Therefore your final exam score may count twice in your grade under one of two situations: (1) you miss one of the two interim exams, or (2) your final exam score is higher than the lower of your two interim exam scores. In any case you must take the final exam. 2 CLASS PROJECTS:
