•Grade Assessment
Grading will follow the rules for G30 students who have entered NU before AY2020 (5 letter system):
TOTAL 100% = 100 pts
Grades: "S" = 100 - 90% (> 90 pts), "A" = 89 - 80% ( 9 - 80 pts), "B" = 79 - 70% (79 - 70 pts), "C" = 69 - 60% (69 - 60
pts), "F" = 59 - 0% (< 60 pts)
Face to face classes: Activity, homework: 10%, intermediate exam: 30%, final exam (comprehensive): 60%
On-line classes: Reports: 65%, final exam (on-line): 35% The final exam is mandatory!
Grades are final and calculated on the basis of the performances during class (reports in case of on-line classes) and
in the two exams (one final exam in case of on-line classes) only. There will be no possibility to improve a grade after
the final exam. Students who miss the final exam due to a (documented) illness, injury or other unavoidable reasons
can ask the instructor.
