Course Completion by Examination
Students need to complete this course by writing a course examination, during the semester. The course examination will be conducted online. Students are required to register the examination at the UMMoodle. Students can choose only one examination session at a time. If students pass the examination, P grade will be recorded. If students do not pass the examination, they can register another examination session within the semester and retake the examination. There is no limit to the number of times students could retake the examination. However, if students do not pass the examination within a semester, NP grade will be recorded and students will be required to retake CISC1000 in the following semester.
The examination schedule will be announced at the UMMoodle at the beginning of each semester when CISC1000 is offered.
