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.

Pass Grade Only (no higher grade available)

NEED DESCRIPTION

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.

Withdrawn

Awarded for units that were discontinued after the census date and before the Withdrawn Fail period.

Withheld

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.

Withdrawn Incomplete

You were awarded this grade based on extreme circumstances beyond your control, occuring or taking effect after the Withdrawn Fail period, and you weren’t able to complete all assessments for the unit.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Withdrawn Fail

Withdrawn Fail is awarded if you withdraw from units between the start of the Withdrawn Fail period and the end of the teaching period.
