Late policy: Exams must be taken at the scheduled date and time. See the assignments page for the late policy regarding assignments.
Academic honesty: Cheating will not be tolerated and can result in failure of the course. Submitted programs must be entirely your own work (except for designated pair assignments, see the assignments page for details). Under no circumstances should you copy another person's code. A student providing code to another student is considered as guilty as the student copying it. Exams are to be strictly your own effort. Unless otherwise specified, no electronic devices are allowed in exams.
