Please note down the following:

§         The table above is a rough plan of the material to be covered. However, each teacher will follow his own distribution of time to different topics.

§         There will be two tests, each consisting of 20 marks and a final exam of 50 marks. 10 marks for home works and quizzes.

§         Attendance in the class is required. Students coming late will be regarded absent.

§         Students are advised to carry the book and a scientific calculator all the times in the class.

§         Programmable calculators are not allowed during examinations.

§         All exams will have multiple-choice questions.

 

Attendance:

Student missing more than 25% of the total class hours won't be allowed to write the final exam.
