After Level Six, declare your intent

    In many RPGs, such as Spiderman, there is a moment when you are warned you are about to start the final battle/boss fight. Now is that moment.

  • After you pass Level 6, you must declare your intent through Titan email.
  • Subject line of email: Intent for Grade
  • In the body of the email make a clear and definitive statement
    • I intend to achieve the C grade.
    • I intend to achieve the B grade.
    • I intend to achieve the A grade.
  • Once you have declared intent, you cannot obtain a grade higher than what you've declared.
  • For instance, if you choose the B grade, you CANNOT later decide to do the APA and get an A in the course.
  • If you choose the C grade, you CANNOT later decide to go back and do the Annotated Bibliography to get a B in the course.
