I heard that we only need 250 points in the whole class to pass. Is this true?

Dr. Lavelle's syllabus says that you need at least a 50% to get a passing grade in the class.

Besides the 50% required to get a C-, Dr. Lavelle does not determine the grade cutoffs for an A, A-, B+, etc. until after the final, meaning you may not have to get the standard 93% to get an A in the class. It all depends on the overall scores at the end.

Would it be possible that the final curve of the overall class would make it so you need higher than a 93% to get an A? Would he curve the class up?

Having 250 points allows you to pass with a C-.

I don't think he'll ever curve the final grade down. From what I've heard from my TA, he will only ever curve the final grade in people's favor.
