Exam

Yes, this class requires the inevitable final exam. It is a take-home exam, which you will have six hours to complete. The format of the exam will simulate a day-in-in-the-life of working at a firm, with a variety of work to choose from. 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. You will cover “rehearsal” exam questions throughout the term, during tutorials, that allow you to practice your take-home exam writing techniques. This is for practice, not for marks. We have model answers for you, and use an interactive process of self-evaluation and strategic discussion during tutorials to provide feedback and prepare for the real thing.
