Conflicts with Test times:

Students with regularly scheduled classes during the Test times will have an opportunity to write the tests. Here's how.


Your tests are returned to you in the tutorial for which you are REGISTERED. After that, you can get them from A. Igelfeld during his office hours. If you have any questions about the marking or addition of marks, you must have returned your paper to the TA during the same tutorial that you received it. If you took it away with you, no one will look at it afterwards. The TA will return the paper to A. Igelfeld, and WHEN YOU COME TO DISCUSS IT, YOUR PAPER WILL BE LOOKED AT. If you don't come, no corrections will be made. TAs CANNOT change your mark, even if they want to, so don't argue with them. Neither can your lecturer. Come and argue with me (Igelfeld) about the test.

Tutorials and Quizzes:

You should be registered in a tutorial. Quizzes will take place in tutorial, and your marks will only be recorded if you attend the correct tutorial.
