The teacher I was student teaching under never gave a student below a 30% on anything. The rationale was that you only have a 30% passing window (70-100%) but a 70% failure window (0-70%) so it's not weighted fairly to begin with. Then you have students who half way through the semester get their act together but are now saddled with a 15% in the class and it's impossible for them to crawl out of it.

I actually like the 50% minimum, it's still an F so what's the difference between that and 0% but at least it keeps the door open for them.

It's for the person who is undergoing surgery to have more information about what is happening to them. Not necessarily for the person doing the surgery.
