  • You must stop working at the end of the exam time. Working past the exam time will not be permitted.

Regrading
  • Your exam will be returned to you in your discussion section.  If you are not satisfied with the way a problem was graded, you may write your concern on a separate sheet of paper and give it and your exam to your TA.  He will then take your exam to the TA who graded the problem in question.
