Replacement/ Additional Assessment Results

R/AA Examination codes:

UR  = Replacement exam on Medical, Compassionate or extenuating circumstances

US = Additional Assessment or Task

The results of Replacement examinations 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 (offered on academic grounds) will not be graded above the level of 50 Pass. Where an Additional Assessment or Task produces an overall result that is different from the primary result, the better of the two results will apply.

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 Arrangement and Coursework Assessment for more information.

Academic Transcripts

Academic Transcripts are available to all students who have commenced or completed academic study at the University of Adelaide.

If you would like to purchase an official Academic Transcript, you will have a number of options via the online shop.

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. The scripts should be offered back to the students after 12 months. If not collected by the students, they can then 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. Schools may choose to offer other arrangements.

Requests for re-marking of scripts
