15% for each of the two exams during the term

Or, your score equals your final exam score, whichever is larger.

If, for example, you score is between 70 and 72, your grade would be C-; if your score is between 73 and 76, your grade would be C; and if your score is between 77 and 79, your grade would be C+.
