Final course grades
For calculation of final course grades, results for the first mid-term exam were
curved up by 2 points = 3% (highest score of 70 points out of 72 points was set to 100%). The
second mid-term and the final exam could not be curved up since the highest scores were 100% (or
higher in the final exam). Your final course grade is calculated as:
0.25 x 1st mid-term + 0.25 x 2nd mid-term + 0.50 x final exam
Final course grades will be reported to each student by email to your registered FIU email account.
