Regrading Policy

All instructors have decided to adopt the following policy for regrading examinations/assignments: Please indicate which problems you would like to have regraded and why on a sticky note/stapled piece of paper attached to the homework or midterm in question. Your instructor will have a look at the question in doubt but will also look at all other questions as well. This means that your mark could decrease after regrading. However, if the error in question is simply a mistake in adding the marks, then it will be corrected without remarking any questions. Papers for regrading will be accepted no earlier than 24 hours after solutions have been posted and no later than 10 days afterwards.
