### Scaling of marks across sections of Maths100 and Maths180

- After the final exam has been marked, term marks (everything except the final exam) for each section
**may be scaled**.
- If this does happen, then the term marks for each section are scaled so that the distribution of term marks is close to the distribution of final exam marks of that section.
- These
*adjusted* term marks will be used to compute a student's final grade.
- This scaling is performed in order to ensure fairness across sections.
