Question

Hi, I was just wondering if a
student is getting 40% in a
class before the final exam
and doesn't show up for the
exam would that further lower
their mark?

I cannot imagine a scenario when it wouldn't but it doesn't really matter whether the failing
grade is 40% or 4%, both are F's. I can think of a scenario though where if you showed up and
got anything over 60-65% you should pass (i.e., putting emphasis on the comprehensive
recent evidence).
