The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai will maintain and provide an accurate grading history for all courses taken by students in the School. Years 1 and 2 at the School are on a pass/fail basis. Exams and quizzes are administered online using Blackboard. If the student believes they have received a final grade that is inaccurate, the student may appeal. The results of the appeal will not result in a lower grade than the first grade posted.
