Reduce assignments/tests worth 50% and over at McMaster University

Exams are a stressful period of the year for University students, and having an exam worth majority of your grade can add even more stress. Therefore, I have decided to petition McMaster University to reduce final percentages of exams and assignments worth 50% and over. These percentages cause anxiety, depression and mental health issues among students, due to the pressures of maintaining high marks as well as studying for various exams. Having dealt with this myself, I know the pressures that come with these high valued assignments and exams. High percentages are especially daunting for students who are graduating, and need specific marks to determine their next steps (masters, graduate school, etc). I feel that the University needs to consider the mental health and well being of it's students, in order for them to excel and succeed in their academics.
