Part 1 is 1.5 hours (90 minutes), is written individually, comprises 55 multiple choice
questions (MC Section) and 1 short answer question (SA Section), and is worth 85% of
your Final Exam Mark.
Part 2 is 1 hour (60 minutes), is written in groups of ~4, is the same exam question set,
and is worth 15% of your Final Exam Mark. Students who are not writing at the main
examination time will receive the average of the groups for their ‘group portion’. If a
student’s individual portion scores higher than the group, their individual mark will be
used for their full Final Exam Mark.

Part 1 will assess the individual knowledge of each student, and Part 2 will allow for
discussion amongst your peers. Note the difference between Parts 1 and &
2, and Sections MC & SA. We look forward to receiving your feedback after the exam to
see how it ranks against other exams.
The short answer section is composed of 5 questions with very short (1-2 word)
responses.
A: Yes, there is lots of material to study for the final, emphasizing the notion that you will
be most successful if you keep up to date with the readings and using the learning
goals as guides (psst, we’ve already gathered these together for you! See Lesson 35…). Note
that the quizzes are OPEN BOOK but the exam is CLOSED BOOK. We know this and
write the questions accordingly for the final, meaning the quiz questions tend to be more
details-focused whereas the final exam questions will be broader in scope. Across all of
the past semesters there continues to be a strong correlation between quiz results +
discussion participation and the final exam mark and the best way to prepare for the
exam is to have been prepared for the quizzes.
Learning Objectives are useful to focus on. Using them for each lesson is a good way
to structure your studying. As in any course, you never have time to review ALL the
information presented over the semester - this is why it is so important to keep up to
date during the semester and asking questions as the course progresses along. We’ve
tried to be on top of all your posts so that you (and your peers) can get relatively
immediate feedback.
I would make sure you're comfortable with the learning objectives and where
necessary spend more time on lessons that are more unfamiliar to you. That way you are
