Re: 11341 - Term Strategy

A couple hints for those getting WA. The problem description is misleading, do not use the ` character in the phrase "Peter, you shouldn't have played billiard that much." Also, I did confirm that exam grades are non decreasing via an assert. One last thing, you can do the average at the very end an...
