### Final Score

Your final score is going to be calculated by the following scheme:

```
Scheme I = 0.3*FE + 0.175*(ME1 + ME2) + 0.2*HW + 0.15*L
```

where FE, ME*i*, HW, and L are the scores (in %) for Final Exam, Midterm *i*, Homework, and Labs, respectively. If you scored above the average on each of the Midterm Exams, that is if

```
ME1 ≥ 59.19 and ME2 ≥ 58.48,
```

then you will be allowed not to take the final exam and in that case your score will be calculated by the scheme

```
Scheme II = 0.325*(ME1 + ME2) + 0.2*HW + 0.15*L
```

**Note:** If you qualify and decide to opt out from taking the final exam, you have to notify me by email by 5pm on Fri, Dec 11. If you fail to do so, your score will be calculated by Scheme I.
