If you’re concerned that your results aren’t quite what you expected, or you’ve failed one or more units and are wanting to chat with someone about your options, book an appointment with the Student Success Team, to chat at a time that suits you. 

 

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’. 

What is my GPA equivalent to?

We’ve had a few questions from students about their GPA and what it means in terms of marks, so here’s a summary:

HD High Distinction [equivalent to Honours Class I (H1) in intent, 7 on the GPA scale]

Numerical conversion: scores and/or aggregate marks between 75% and 84%
C Credit [equivalent to Honours Class II, Division 2 (H2B) in intent, 5 on the GPA scale]
Good performance indicating reasonable and well-rounded understanding and/or application of the subject matter; achieves all basic but only a few higher-order intended unit objectives and graduate attributes linked to the tasks; a few more serious flaws or several minor ones; clear and unambiguous evidence of possession of a reasonable level of most required skills; demonstrated reasonable level of interpretive and/or analytical ability and intellectual initiative; reasonable level of competence.
Numerical conversion: scores and/or aggregate marks between 65% and 74%

Numerical conversion: scores and/or aggregate marks of less than 50%
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.
 
NI Fail – Did not satisfy unit requirements [0 on the GPA scale]
One or more mandatory requirements for the completion of the unit (as detailed in the Unit Requirements) were not fulfilled.
 
S or US Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory [S = 4, US = 0, on the GPA scale]
In some units, the grading system is organised on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (pass/fail) basis. When this grading system is used the appropriate interpretive descriptors to apply will be those for the grade of at least Pass or Fail.
 

 

W Withdrawn

    Hi, a few weeks back there was a post about the coronavirus which said that you could get a D, C or P changed to a satisfactory if it was going to bring your GPA down. In the article it said more instructions would be given when marks were released. Will that be happening in the next few days?

    tri 1 results have been disappointing. I origin ally asked for special consideration since i had IT problems and am not very key board efficient.
    I applied and was advised that there are no special considerations for IT related problems and not being able to type very fast. I have failed the two units.
    The property law lecturer offered a special exam but i had to answer before 30th June which seemed strange as the results only come out on 1/7/2020 and only as an online exam the very problem that i have.
    I believe that covoid and the resultant IT problems that i suffered did not help and i probably failed as a result. I am extremely disappointed and after doing two previous degrees and never failing a surject it is crushing.
    Furthermore i have discovered that UNE is now only considering online exams from now on. I feel that there is no place for me at UNE and must move to another university in order to get a fair crack instead of being forced into this situation.
    I have emailed and tried to call to no avail and certainly no answers for me
    Amy, i am very disappointed and would like to move on as the lack of communication is a concern. In previous emails i have asked that staff dont ignore the emails and please respond but i have not heard anything back. As a result i dont expect anything from you either. I will just leave go to another university be very disgrentled.

    Regards
    Trevor Leith

      Hi Trevor,
      I can understand you’re disappointed with the outcome and the delay in response at the moment. All of our teams are currently experiencing unprecedented volumes of inquiry and are working through emails and calls as quickly as possible, but I certainly get that it can be frustrating!
      Special Exams or Considerations generally require you to apply around the time of your assessment, rather than as a response to results. Your Unit Coordinator was likely trying to comply with this policy but it sounds like it would help to chat and explain your options a bit better.
      In regards to online exams, paper based exams or alternative assessments are still available for certain circumstances, though unfortunately cannot be the automatic option at the moment for student and staff wellbeing given COVID-19 circumstances. The Student Support Team can chat to you about how to apply for an alternative assessment if an online exam is not suitable for you for privacy or other reasons.
      If you’d be interested in speaking with someone in our Student Support Team to discuss your situation and the options you might have from here, my best suggestion would be to book a phone appointment so that the team can call you at the time that best suits you. There are a couple of appointments left this afternoon, or several available tomorrow. You can book here: https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/UNECustomerServiceandCaseManagement@myune.onmicrosoft.com/bookings/
      Kind regards,
      Amy

    Hi Amy,

    Are you sure about this ???
    S Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory [S = 4, US = 0, on the GPA scale]
    ____________________________________________________

    1. NEW INITIATIVE
    In your update on 16 May 2020, a new initiative was outlined as part of further UNE support measures in response to COVID-19 impact on individual study performance. That is, students could apply to change a Pass (P), Credit (C) or Distinction (D) to a Satisfactory (S) grade. If granted, S grades would not be included in the calculation of the student’s grade point average (GPA). Apparently, more information would be provided after results have been released on 1 July 2020.

    2. GPA ANOMALY
    Otherwise, as indicated in the UNE blog post dated 1 July 2020, the grading system in some units under normal circumstances is organised on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (pass/fail) basis. If a student only receives 4 for a successful pass, then s/he would seem to be disadvantaged by such system. It would not be possible to achieve a maximum GPA based on meritorius peak performance. To level the playing field, I would wonder whether it is more appropriate to allocate a 0 for a pass/fail unit.
