Grading:
During Michaelmas term you will attend a course on statistics. This will
count 40% of your final mark in Course 123. Here, then, is how your
grade is computed:
Michaelmas Exam 10%
Trinity Exam 10%
Final Exam 80%
Let A = final grade you receive on these exams.
Let B = final grade you receive on your statistics course.
Then your final mark for Course 123 is A x 60% + B x 40%
There will be a computer project during Hilary term that will count
10% of your final mark. So this is how your final mark for Course
123 is calculated:
Michaelmas exam 10%
Hilary exam 10%
Trinity exam 10%
Computer project 10%
Final exam 60%
