The final will be on Tuesday 5/9 from 11:30-2:30pm. Please arrive by 11:20am. We will start promptly at 11:30am, not on Berkeley Time. If you are DSP or have another final conflict, you should have received an email with your time and location. If you did not, please email jthakar+61a@berkeley.edu.


The final will be at the RSF Field House. We will assign you to an arbitrary seat for the exam. If you want to request something else about your seat assignment (for example, you recently broke your foot and need an aisle seat), please fill out this form by Sunday 5/7 @ 11:59pm.

We will email you your assigned room and seat on Monday. If you do not receive a seat by Monday night, please make a private Piazza post to let us know.

Exam Policy

You must bring your Cal student ID or a government-issued photo ID. The exam is open-note, so you may bring an unlimited amount of notes, slides, books, practice exams, or other paper materials. You may not use any electronic devices. Also if you attended the last lecture don't forget your HKN secret code.

You should bring scratch paper. We will not grade your scratch work, so you must write your answers on the exam itself.
