Yes, this class requires the inevitable final exam. It is a take-home exam, which you will have six hours to complete. A word-count guideline will be imposed to reasonably limit the length of your answers.

It is worth 60% of your grade for the course. The past exams below will give you an excellent indication of what to expect, despite the fact that all previous exams were delivered in-class.

Because of the heavy weighting of the final exam, I won’t let you write it unprepared. We will release a “rehearsal” exam in late November that allows you to practice your take-home exam writing techniques. This is for practice, not for marks. After I draft and share model answers for you, we use an interactive process of self-evaluation and strategic discussion during tutorials to provide feedback and prepare for the real thing.
