Policies

  1. No makeup tests or quizzes, except in case of emergency, e.g. illness and accident. For make-up tests, a medical certificate is required and the instructor must be notified in advance of the test.
  2. No late assignment will be accepted.

Course Grading:

Students will be evaluated based on their completion of quizzes, class tests, and final exams. Your overall grade will be determined on the following basis.

Class notes and Handouts:

Students must take notes in the class. Derivations and problems would be copied from the board as the instructor writes while the student should note down important points as the instructor orally delivers the lecture. This body of material would form the most important asset of the student for exam preparation and in obtaining good grades.

Additional study material supplementing the class notes is the textbook. The student must always inculcate the habit of book reading for deepening and strengthening the concepts gained in the class.

 

Attendance Policy:

Class attendance is mandatory. You are expected to be present in all classes. The students having their attendance less than 75% will not be allowed to appear in the exam and will be awarded an “F” grade henceforth.

 

Homework Policy:

  • You SHOULD NOT copy homework from classmates. You may consult with the instructors or one of your classmates if there is a homework problem that you find difficult.
  • Copying assignments will not carry any benefit because quizzes will be based on assignments and most of the assignments will be marked based on quizzes.
  • Late homework is not accepted for any reason.
  • Homework papers should have a cover page showing name, ID number, date, problem number, and assignment number.
  • Class serial number should appear on the top right-hand corner of the cover page.
  • All problems in an assignment set should be arranged sequentially.
  • A4 Paper should be used for Assignments.

Quizzes:

These will be held promptly on the designated day. They will cover the material taught in the previous weeks. Late arrival or non-attendance without a legitimate excuse will mean that you are ineligible to take that quiz.

 

Academic Dishonesty:

The UOS is an academic community whose purpose is the pursuit of knowledge and the development of its graduates as leading experts in their academic disciplines. All members of this community must be committed to the principles of truth and academic honesty. Academic dishonesty includes the following acts committed knowingly or intentionally by the student: 

 

  • Cheating: Using or attempting to use unauthorized materials and assistance, such as notes, study aids, electronic communication devices of any sort, or any other forms of unauthorized information or consulting any unauthorized sources, in any academic assignment, exercise, or examination.
  • Fabrication: Falsifying or inventing research, citations, or any information on any academic assignment, exercise, or examination.
  • Plagiarism: Representing another’s words or ideas as one’s own or failing to give proper credit to outside sources of information in any academic assignment, exercise, or examination.
  • Facilitating academic dishonesty: Aiding or assisting another in cheating, fabrication, or plagiarism.

Students who have committed an act of academic dishonesty are subject to one or more of the following penalties:

  • A written warning
  • A reduction in grade for the assignment
  • A zero grade for the assignment
  • A reduction of the grade for the course, including an F grade for the course.
  • Suspension from the Wah Engineering College for one or more semesters.
  • Expulsion from the Wah Engineering College.

Records of incidents of academic dishonesty will be kept on file at the Wah Engineering College and may be reported to the student’s guardian and sponsor.

Students who are in doubt about whether certain academic activities are honest or not should discuss the matter with the course instructor or consult the WEC policy on academic integrity.

 

Disclaimer:

The instructor reserves the right to change, and adjust the policies and class schedules at any time during the semester.
