    Equation for marking scheme

    Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've gone on these forums. Anyway, in my first lecture today I received a syllabus and on it was this equation. I have not done any calculus in two years so forgive me if this math is extremely simple.



    I realise that the first part shows that the midterm is worth 40% and the final 60%, but the second half confuses me.

    Any explanation would be greatly appreciated as this is quite important for me to know.

    Thank you

    If you got at least 66 M-idway, then your course grade is either just your F-inal grade or the 40:60 mix - whichever is higher. Otherwise (if M < 66) you get either 85% of your F-inal grade or the 40:60 mix - whichever is higher.

    So as long as you do ok mid-way, you get a chance to not be limited by that mid-way score.
