Grades are **straight scale**: 90 or above is an A, 80-89 B, 70-79 C, 60-69 D, 59 or below F. *In other words, ***there is NO curve and NO rounding**. We look for a gap between students' grades to make the assignment of letter grades. If the largest gap is between 90.0 and 89.9, then 89.9 is a B and 90.0 is an A.

No late assignments will be accepted without previous arrangement with the instructor. All assignments are due at *11:59 pm British time* on the due date unless otherwise specified.

No make-up exams without previous arrangement and an official/reasonable excuse.
