Arrangements must be made well in advance of the exam. Requests made after the deadline will not be accommodated and you will have to take the exam on the MSU campus.Click here for deadlines and details for arranging off-campus exams.
- Grading scales for exams will not be curved unless there was mis-wording or an error.
*-- Modified could mean that if the original problem gave x and asked for y, the modified problem might give y and ask for x. For conceptual problems, modified could mean covering the same concept.
