Also note that the 'incorrect' questions in Assignments 6A and 7 have been removed formally from the assignment, the scores have been recalculated based on the remaining questions and the scores are uploaded.  If you find any discrepancy there, send an email ASAP.

Calculus for ECM: Objective Questions Clarifications

Hi all!

In the course outline tab, you will find a new document, that gives clarification on the most common questions that had been pointed out by the students.  If you need clarification on any more questions, kindly point out and I will add them.  There were several mails with different questions requiring to be clarified; I have only included the most frequently occurring ones.  If there are further mails, I will include those questions as well.

Calculus for ECM: Detailed announcement about assignment scores

Hi all!

All your assignment scores except Assignment 8 (the assignment is still live) score should be visible.  Please check.

If you have submitted an assignment via the submission portal and the score is not visible, send an email ASAP mentioning the same.

If you have submitted an assignment via email, then your score will take longer to be visible; I will post an update about the same.  However, do send an email if the score is not visible; that would help me keep a record.

Assignment 4B (Subjective) was worth 10 marks and assignments 5B (Subjective) and 6B (Subjective) were worth 20 marks.  However, you will find your scores after being scaled to out of 100.

About objective assignments, I have received some grievances via email; if you have something to ask and have not done so by email yet, then please do so ASAP.  I have received some concerns so far and I shall reply to them soon.

Please make sure that you mention all details about your concern: assignment number, objective or subjective, whether submitted via submission portal or via email, whether score is visible or not, in the email.  This will help me segregate different cases and take care of them quickly.

VSI
