    Evaluation Minor1 (20); Minor2 (20); Major (40); Quiz (10); 3 surprise lecture quizzes, best 2 to be counted, weightage of 5 marks each
    Attendance/missed tests Policy
    If you miss a minor due to illness (medical certificate needed) then I will scale the marks you receive  in the other minors and major to award you marks in the missed minor. There is no reminor. If you miss a lecture quiz there is no possibility of compensating it.
