(FTP directory copy) - Grading guidelines

Please note that these are only guidelines and are subject to change

Your code will be graded out of 10 points. Seven of the points will be based on your code's functionality as determined by the automatic testing script. The additional three points will be based on your code's design and style.

Among the 3 style/design points, we will consider the following while taking off points:
