Is it legal or normal for a professor to require 65 or above on both assessments to pass the unit? [closed]

Our grades for the Coding class I am taking are divided between projects and exams. The professor I take the class under has the following policy on her syllabus:

If our cumulative average for either our exams or projects is below 65% we receive an F in the class.

For example, lets say your class grade was an 75% (C) with a 90% average for projects, but a 60% average for exams. You would receive a failing grade. To me this seems highly immoral considering some students simply aren't good test takers.

Just curious, but is this policy legal in any way?
