Results – reading your marks
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. 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.
The following table provides a key to results on the academic record (transcript) according to the year of study. You should also refer to the Grading Schema Procedure (pdf, 0.26 mb)
|HI||First Class Honours||80+|
|HIIA||Second Class Honours Division A||70–79|
|HIIB||Second Class Honours Division B||60–69|

80–100 You’ve demonstrated extended knowledge, skills and attributes at an exceptional level, showing fluency, originality and integration of concepts.
70–79 You’ve demonstrated extended knowledge, skills and attributes at a superior level, showing fluency, emerging originality and integration of concepts.
60–69 You’ve demonstrated fundamental knowledge, skills and attributes at a proficient level, showing fluency in concepts.
50–59 Satisfactory. You’ve demonstrated fundamental knowledge, skills and attributes at a satisfactory level.
0–49 You lack satisfactory demonstration of fundamental knowledge, skills and expected attributes.
45 A Hurdle Fail grade means you didn't satisfactorily complete all hurdle requirements but would have otherwise passed the unit.
You’ve been granted a deferred assessment (exam or assessment task) or an alternative assessment task, resulting from your special consideration application.
A deferred assessment is an assessment postponed to a later date. These are held:
- during the official deferred assessment/exam period
- or at a time determined by your faculty. They will email your Monash account with the details, giving you at least five University working days' notice.
This grade is used to finalise a unit undertaken on a non-assessed, non-award basis.
Supplementary Assessment Granted
You have been granted a supplementary assessment.
Not Satisfied Requirements
A fail grade used for Study Abroad, exchange, and complementary study units when Monash has not taught and assessed the unit. The mark provided by the other institution is not recorded.
NSR is also used for any unit with a failing grade in eligible teaching periods that you may choose to retain but exclude from your WAM and GPA/CGPA calculation due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your study.
Pass Grade Only (no higher grade available)
Satisfied Faculty Requirements
A pass grade used for Study Abroad, exchange, and complementary study units when Monash has not taught and assessed the unit. The mark provided by the other institution is not recorded.SFR can also be applied to any unit with a passing grade in eligible teaching periods that you may choose to exclude from your WAM and GPA/CGPA calculation due to the impact of the COVID19 pandemic on your study.
Awarded for units that were discontinued after the census date and before the Withdrawn Fail period.
The assessment marking is incomplete and a final grade has not yet been determined. This could be because:
- you have an extension to finish outstanding assessment tasks
- you haven’t submitted your placement report (if you’re a placement student)
- the host institution for your Study Abroad units hasn't yet submitted your results from your time overseas
- your Unit Coordinator or Chief Examiner might still be marking your work and will update your result shortly.
You were awarded this grade based on extreme circumstances beyond your control, occuring or taking effect after the Withdrawn Fail period, and you weren’t able to complete all assessments for the unit. The WI grade is not a passing grade because you haven’t completed the requirements of the unit. Unlike the other fail grades, the WI is not included in your GPA calculation.
Withdrawn Fail is awarded if you withdraw from units between the start of the Withdrawn Fail period and the end of the teaching period.
