Evaluation of Student Performance:
The course grading scheme for undergraduate courses conforms to the 9-point system used in other undergraduate programs at York. The possible course letter grades for a course (and the corresponding grade points awarded for each grade are:
A+ A | 9 grade points8 | B+ | 7 | B | 6 | C+ | 5 | C | 4 | D+ | 3 | D | 2 | F | 0 |
(Students are reminded that they must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 5.0 to remain in good standing and continue in the program, and to qualify for their degree. Schulich grading guidelines mandate a section GPA of between 5.5 and 7.0.)
Where instructors use numerical or percentage grades, Schulich grading policy does not require a preset translation of percentages into specific letter grades. In this class, final letter grades will be determined by the following process:
Quiz #1 (45 min.) | 10% | Quiz #2 (45 min.) | 15% | Midterm Exam....... | 30%
