The exams will be returned in class on Monday January 23 at 2:50PM.

The results are similar to what I expected them to be and to the results of the previous term test (though a bit better). Please re-read my comments on 1617-257/Term Test 1.

Appeals

Remember! We try hard yet grading is a difficult process and mistakes always happen - solutions get misread, parts are forgotten, grades are not added up correctly. You must read your exam and make sure that you understand how it was graded. If you disagree with anything, don't hesitate to complain! (Though first consider very carefully the possibility that the mistake is actually yours). Your first stop should be the person who graded the problem in question, and only if you can't agree with him you should appeal to Dror (within a further day or two).

Dror marked problems number 3 and 6 and did the arithmetic and data entry. Jeffrey Im marked the rest.

The deadline to start the appeal process is Monday January 30 at 3PM. Once you've started the process by talking to Dror or to Jeffrey, it ends when a final decision is made, with no deadline.
