Published On November 1, 2019 | By Amy | News

Results were released yesterday and we have been receiving a few questions and comments about what certain things mean. Given this, we’ve put together some FAQ’s that we hope will help!

If you haven’t received your results yet:

We have been receiving feedback that some students have not received their results in email, and/or have not received a text message with results despite having registered for SMS.

If you’re in this boat, we do apologise for the inconvenience and want you to know that we’re looking into this as a matter of priority.

Thank you to those who have emailed or inboxed over the weekend regarding your results notifications (either by email or text). 

If you are still trying to view your results and have been unable to access the website, we’d encourage you to try downloading the mUNE app and checking the Results tab there. You can find the app for Apple App Store here, or in the Google Play Store here, or in the Android Store here.

We greatly appreciate you bearing with us as we work to resolve this for you as quickly as possible!

 

FAQ

What does my Result Code mean?

You can view a breakdown of the meanings of different Result Codes here. If you have any questions about why you’ve received the grade that you did, make sure to reach out to your Unit Coordinator first.

My grade is RU, what does this mean? How do I find out my actual result?

An RU grade stands for Results Unavailable and can appear for a few different reasons. You can find information about RU grades here. If you have an RU grade, it’s best to get in touch with your Unit Coordinator directly to follow this up.

What is a GPA? What does it stand for?

GPA stands for Grade Point Average and refers to an average performance in study over a set period of time.

Where can I find my GPA?

You can find your GPA in a couple of places. The easiest place to locate this is by downloading the mUNE mobile app and checking the Results tab. This will give you a breakdown of your Trimester GPA and your overall Course GPA. 

Alternatively, you can log into your myUNE account, navigate to myEnrol, under ‘Enrolment Details’ in the top left select ‘Course Details’. On the next page, select your Course Code that will be underlined beside the word ‘Progression’.

NC Compulsory Fail – Failed an assessment component that must be passed in order to pass the unit
This grade is used when an assessment task, such as a final examination, that must be passed in order to pass the unit (as detailed in the Unit Requirements) has not been passed (resulting in a fail in the unit), but where the overall mark is 50% or higher.
