At my school all first year courses, with the exception of legal practice, are one semester long and have only one final exam. One of my profs will lower your grade if you are unprepared in class, the rest will only raise it in the case of exceptional class participation.
As for what's on the exams - I'll let you know after I've actually taken one.
We are graded on a strict curve, From A+ to C. So your exam grade completely depends on the performance of you classmates. From what I've heard only one ot two people in each class get the A+ or the C, with B and B- being the avereage grades.
