EXAMS. Submit bluebooks a week before the date of examination. No make-up exam will be given unless with a valid excuse. Two missed exams would have one exam be graded zero, plus he/she will be obliged to take the final exam regardless if his/her grade is above the exemption cutoff. Three missed exams would automatically incur a grade of 5.00. Complaints regarding examination results will be entertained only within a period of one week after the release of the examination papers. Use black or blue pen when taking examinations. Otherwise, no complaints regarding the examination results will be accepted. ATTENDANCE. Students who exceed the maximum allowed absences (6) are advised to drop assuming that the deadline for dropping has not yet lapsed. Otherwise, he/she will be given a grade of 5.0. FINAL EXAM. In the event that the student’s pre-final grade falls below 65%, the student will be obliged to take the final exam. The final grade would then be computed as follows: Final Grade = ( 32 * Pre-final Grade) + ( 13 * Final Exam Score) Exempted students may opt to take the final examination with the chance of either pulling their grades up or down. CHEATING. Cheating in any form will be subjected to proper disciplinary action and will merit a final grade of 5.0. DURING CLASS HOURS. No smoking. No eating. No sleeping. Turn off your cellular phones or put them in silent mode.
