This Hasn't Happened In A Long Time

Today I took the 2nd test in my Probability Theory class.  I was allotted 50 minutes, and when 50 minutes hit I wasn't done.  Sure, I could have taken another 5 minutes, tops, and finished it, but I had to sign that I played by the rules and that 5 minutes isn't worth as much as my integrity.  I stopped mid-problem and wrote "out of time" and turned my test in to my proctor.

I'm hoping for some "max partial credit".

Update, 11/3/13:  I got 97%.  I lost 3 points on the problem I didn't finish.

Sounds wicked. :) Glad you're up to that challenge, and you probably did well on it. Waiting for the results must be stressful, though!
