Final Grades

Names that are highlighted didn´t pass this course and CAN´T take a make-up test (segundo turno) because even if they take it, they won´t be able to reach 51 points. The make-up test would have replaced the final test grade (20 points) I´ll be out of town next week, but you can email me if you have any questions However I must state clearly that there isn´t any way your grade can be modified. Thanks!
