Hi there,

I was admitted in January and have since been very seriously considering choosing Bora Laskin, I even bought my plane ticket and will be attending the admitted students day on March 1, lol.

I do have a question however (and probably many more to come).

I was wondering about the marking scheme at Bora Laskin. On the school's website it says: "rather than 100% final exams, skills components allow there to be other assessment methods, reinforcing the value placed on skills development". 

Can any current students speak to how courses are typically graded then in this respect?

What this means is that rather than having a final exam worth 100% of your grade in that course, you'll have practical IPC assignments throughout the term weighted anywhere between 5 and 30ish percent; and for full year courses especially, you'll often have at least one assignment per semester. How many assignments you have, and how much they're weighted depends on the course and the professor. This is in addition to midterm examinations in many of your full-year courses, which are also usually worth 30% or so. What this means is that once April rolls around and you have to write your final exam, anywhere between about 30-50% of your grade has already been determined by your assignments. 

 

Hope this helps.
