Grades

In the syllubus is says that you need 50% to get a c- or higher. Does that mean you need 250/500 points to pass the class?

I believe so because it doesn't specify that you need 50% on any one assignment category, so it would be 250/500 in the course.

my TA said 50% in the class is passing, so I believe 250 points is enough to pass the class

If I understand correctly, yes 250 points will allow you to pass the class. However I have heard from past students that he also adjusts the grading scale a little bit based on the average of the class, that is why there are so many A's in his classes on Bruinwalk.

I believe so but he will also adjust the grading scale according to the amount of points people tend to have by the end of the course.

It was also mentioned in a previous post that there might be a 3-5 percent curve based on class average.

Approximately yes, the accurate number I believe will be calculated after taking into account the class' average
