I know there's no curve, but 50% is passing with a C-. How does the rest of the class grading balance out if a C- is 50%? is it 50-75% is a C- and then the rest, C-A+ follows a normal grading scale, or is it evened out to, say, 50-65% is a C scale, 66-80% is a B scale, etc etc?
C- is considered passing I believe. If you get a D+ though you will still get credit from the course but will not be able to move in the series. That was the case for 14A and I would assume it would be similar for this course as well.
On the syllabus, it states, "50% or higher is required to pass with a C- or higher." Therefore, if your overall grade in the class is 50% or higher, you pass the class. However, I am not entirely sure about the breakdown...
Dr. Lavelle may also adjust the grades after the final has been graded. In 14A, I believe his policy was that once all of the class averages were in, he would adjust the grading scale accordingly if it was needed. He will probably have a similar policy for 14B, though I wouldn't rely on this changing a grade drastically.
