Project Marks Uploaded!

Finally I am done with marking all the project reports of FIN254 and FIN440. I have uploaded the project marks for both the groups and the group members along with group member evaluation marks in the respective course folders. I was given two days of probation advising duty on 6th and 7th of May, that's why I am a bit late to prepare the grades. Hopefully I will be able to submit the grades tomorrow.


Wednesday, May 7, 2014


Marksheets have been made available in the respective course folders. Please check your marks and email me immediately if you find any mistake in recording your marks. Please inform all your friends and classmates about it.

I could not finish checking the term project reports for my finance courses (FIN254 and FIN440). I will upload the updated marksheets once I finish checking them. If you are interested to check your scripts or have any inquiry, you may visit my office tomorrow between 8 am and 10 am. Grades would be assessed tomorrow in the afternoon based on these marks after necessary curving.
