Dear Students,

The grading of the course is done in line with the course syllabus; all your course performance is evaluated with letter grades (mid-term and final), not with 100 scaling. However, due to the technical problems of the OBYS system, the letter grades has to be reflected over 100 scaling. Therefore, the grades given over 100 scaling system or the percentages on the OBYS system are not binding. All the students are informed about their letter grades on time in detail over the course web site and also in class. The only correct and binding grades in the OBYS is your FİNAL COURSE GRADE.
