- What are the current Mark and Grade Schemes?
The letters in your results are grades. Each course is assessed using one of the following grade schemes. Students must direct queries about their marks and grades for their courses to the School office.
See the Past Grading Schemes page for past grades used within the University.

- Replacement/Additional Assessment (R/AA) Results
R/AA Examination Codes
UR = Replacement Examination on medical, compassionate or extenuating circumstances
US = Additional Assessment or Task
The results of Replacement Examinations (UR) offered on medical and/or compassionate grounds will be classified using the normal grading system. However, if you completed the primary exam, and then sat the replacement exam, your existing primary result will be replaced by the replacement result, regardless of whether the latter is higher or lower.
The results of Additional Assessment or Task (US) offered on academic grounds will not be graded above the level of 50 Pass. Where the Additional Assessment or Task produces an overall result that is different from the primary result, the better of the two results will apply up to 50 Pass.
All students will receive a single final result for each course, whether or not an R/AA was necessary to achieve that result. No indication of the R/AA will appear on your official academic transcript. Students are advised to refer to the Modified Arrangements for Coursework Assessment Policy for more information.
- Academic Transcripts
- Examination Scripts
Students have the right to access their examination scripts. Schools must retain scripts for 12 months to allow for possible appeals and re-marking, after which time they may be disposed of in confidential waste. Students may access their examination scripts for discussions with academics if they place their request in writing to the examiner within 28 days of the issue of the official results.
See the Student Grievance Resolution Process website for further information.
- Re-marking & Appeals
If a student is dissatisfied with an assessment grade they should follow the Student Grievance Resolution Process.
Stage 1: Informal Discussion - In the first instance the student should contact the person who marked the assessment to informally discuss the grievance with the grade.
Stage 2: Formal Review - Lodge a written request for review of result or independent re-mark to the relevant Head of School within 10 days of notification of the result.
