  • Students can see their graded mid-term exam sheets on *Tuesday* ( Tir 27) at 10 a.m. - 1p.m. and 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. If any student cannot come (for any reason), they should inform Dr.Rezakhani by email in advance. For these students there are two options:
    (i) either they assign a classmate or friends of theirs as their representative (students should inform Dr. Rezakhani of the names of their representatives by email); or
    (ii) ask a friend of theirs to come and take photo shots of their graded exam sheets. In the latter case, the students should communicate their specific objections through email to Dr. Rezakhani -- the deadline for sending emails is 11 a.m. the day after (Wednesday).
    Any student not showing up on Tuesday or informing Dr. Rezakhani by email (as indicated above) will be assumed to have waived their rights to see their graded exam and making objections.
