Help with your results
Grading and results update
To support you in achieving the best possible academic outcome during the disruption caused by COVID-19, we’ve made some changes to grading and results in 2020. Changes include the removal of fail grades, the option to withdraw units after results release and to exclude units from your GPA and WAM calculations. For all options available to you and the eligible teaching periods, see the grading and results update.
Understanding your results
For help with understanding your results, take a look at:
- reading your marks
- Grade Point Average (GPA)
- Weighted Average Mark (WAM)
- failed and invalid units
- feedback on exam performance and assessment.
Academic transcript (record)
To get an official copy of your academic transcript, you’ll need to order and pay for it using the Web Enrolment System (WES). Within three working days of payment, your record will be available in digital format through My eQuals.
For more information, see academic transcript (record).
If you have concerns about your results
If you didn’t get the result you were hoping for, or you failed a unit, there’s no need to panic. For specific teaching periods, fail grades will be automatically removed from your academic record and you’ll have the option to withdraw units after results release (so they don’t count towards your GPA and WAM). For all the available options, and the eligible teaching periods, see the grading and results update.
If you’ve failed a unit, you should take a look at failed and invalid units. You can also get advice from your faculty on how to deal with these results or with an invalid unit, or ask to view your exam responses.
Incorrect unit result
If you think a result is wrong, you’ll need to contact the unit’s chief examiner. For units taught by the Faculty of Engineering, contact the unit coordinator.
The first step is to get some course advice by contacting your faculty during business hours. For contact details, see a list of who to talk to for course advice.
If you’re feeling stressed or anxious about your results, it's always good to talk to someone. We have University counsellors available to help you. You just need to reach out.
