The final grade is determined using the exam grade and the average tutorial grade. In three tutorials the student receives a test at the end of the tutorial. Each tutorial test is graded. The average tutorial grade is the average over all tutorials scores after deleting the lowest tutorial score. The final grade is determined as follows. If the exam grade is higher than the average tutorial grade, then the final grade equals the exam grade, else the final grade equals (3*exam grade + average tutorial grade)/4.
The tutorial grade is only valid in this academic year.
