Note: It is strongly recommended that you prepare yourself to be graded on the ﬁrst scheme; the sec-
ond scheme is included in order to accommodate students who fail to perform up to their ability on the
midterm due to circumstances beyond their control.
Conversion of numerical grades to Final Letter Grades follows the Dalhousie Common Grade Scale
A+: (90–100) A: (85–89) A-: (80–84)
B+: (77–79) B: (73–76) B-: (70–72)
C+: (65–69) C: (60–64) C-: (55–59)
D: (50–54) F: (<50)

are made aware of what occurs during classes.
