Grades have been assessed and submitted into the system. Following is the summary of grades posted this semester (Summer 2014) for my courses.

Marksheets Uploaded!

Markseets have been uploaded for all courses taught this semester. However, some assessments for FIN courses (Final problem section for FIN440 and project marks for both FIN254 and FIN440) are yet to be done and recorded. Will upload the updated marksheets once they are done.

Please notify all your classmates about this. These are original marks you obtained. As such, curving is yet to be done. Please go through your marks carefully. If you find any problem in your marks, you must report that to me immediately through email. Otherwise grades would be assessed based on these marks after necessary curving.

FIN254 Final Exam Time Changed!

To resolve the time conflict between FIN254 and FIN440 exams as mentioned in an earlier post, following new schedule has been fixed for FIN254 final exam.

FIN254=> 19th Aug, 2014 @ 10 am in NAC310.

Thanks.

Final Exam Schedule for Summer 2014!

Registrar's Office has published the final exam schedule for the semester. Following dates and timings are for my courses:

BUS172=> 16-Aug @ 8 am in NAC415
FIN254=> 19-Aug @ 12 pm in NAC405
FIN440=> 19-Aug @ 12 pm in NAC501

As you can see FIN254 and FIN440 exams have been scheduled at the same time, I am trying to change timing of FIN254. It seems that the person who does this has not come to the office today. I will try to change the time, but not the date. In case, no other time is available on that date I might change the date, and I would prefer an earlier date. I will let you know the decision once I confirm with the Registrar's Office, may be by tomorrow, Inshallah.

Don't forget we have quizzes on the last day of classes. Following would be the quiz syllabus.

BUS172=> Chapters 8 & 9.
FIN254=> Chapters 8, 9, & 10.
FIN440=> Chapters 8, 9, 10, & 15.

Thank you.
