exam answer sheet


When you take a multiple choice exam you must correctly put your name and ID number on both the computer generated questions sheet and on the answer sheet! If the Computing Services staff must correct and ID which you miscoded, four points will be subtracted from your score on that exam. If you do not have your name and correct ID number on both sheets it may be impossible to correct your exam. If your exam cannot be corrected because of the absence of this information, you may be required to repeat the examination.
