ECE 313 Exams Summer 2012
The topics covered in the exams are exactly the ones in the course notes. There will be three Midterm Exams (ME) and one Final Exam (FE). Roughly speaking ME1 covers lectures 1-10, ME2 covers lectures 1-20 with emphasis on lectures 11-20, and ME3 covers lectures 1-30 with emphasis on lectures 21-30. FE includes all lectures. More detail regarding the topics in each exam will be announced.
Conflict Exams: Students who have conflicts with each of the exams, such as another exam at the same time must report it to the instructor at least 10 days before the exam. A conflict exam will be scheduled for those students who qualify (the rules for final exams are more strict--see below). If for some reason of emergency such as severe illness you are not able to take an exam at the required time, you will need to obtain a written excuse from the emergency dean, and contact the instructor, to schedule a makeup exam.
Please make sure that you bring your IDs with you, and that you show up at least 15 minutes earlier, in order to avoid last minute problems (such as not being able to find the room).
Notes for exams: You may bring notes on 8.5" by 11" sheets to the exam as described below. The notes can be typed in font size 10 or larger, or written in handwritting of equivalent size or larger. The exams are closed-book and closed-notes otherwise. Electronic devices (calculators, cellphones, pagers, laptops, etc.) are neither necessary nor permitted. A table of values of the standard Gaussian CDF will be supplied to you if it is needed on an exam.
You can find copies of old midterm exams and final exams by going to the web pages of previous offerings of ECE 313.
Conflict Final Exam: There are strict rules to be followed in determining eligibility for a conflict final exam. In particular, you may be eligible to take the conflict final only if you would otherwise have three finals in one 24 hour period. If you think you qualify for a conflict final, please contact the instructor with the word "conflict final" in the subject header. If for some reason of emergency such as severe illness you are not able to take the final exam at the required time, you will need to obtain a written excuse from the emergency dean.
