If you are out of late days and you get them checked off before the midterm the maximum score you can get is 7 out of 10 on your labs and .7 out of 1 on your diagnostics. If you get them checked off after the midterm the maximum score you can get is 4 out of 10 on your labs and .4 out of 1 on your diagnostics.
