OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

If you miss the mid-term due to illness, and provide appropriate documentation, the weight of the mid-term will be added to the final exam (40% + 60% = 100%).
