What do your grades mean: HD, DN, CR, PS...
On this page you can find out how to access your assessment results, why results may be withheld and how to get a review of results.
NOTE: In Term 1 2020 only, an NF grade indicates that you have failed the course. Failed courses in Term 1 2020 only, will not appear on your academic transcript and will not be included in the calculation of your WAM, your academic standing, or be included in the calculation of the maximum number of repeat fails.
An outstanding debt with UNSW means you'll be denied some or all of the following services:

There are three withheld grades:
If you receive a WC or WD grade you must contact your course authority within the specified time noted in the course handout, but in any case no more than 5 days after the release of results, as it might be necessary to organise further assessment. You will be aware of the unresolved matter that a WJ grade relates to.
Any results not finalised by the set deadline will be converted to a course not completed grade (NC). This grade counts as a Fail in the calculation of academic standing and academic progression.
Following release of results at the end of Term 1, 2 and 3, initially all withheld and late entry grades (WC, WD and LE) will result in an academic standing level of Pending, if these grades prevent the determination of a true academic standing level.
Once the deadline for Suspension or Exclusion has passed, withheld grades of WD and WC are treated as Fails if the student's previous semester or term's academic standing was not Good. This is to ensure that students who may be at risk of failure are identified early and can consult an academic advisor before finalising their enrolment for the next term.
NOTE: You must submit your application no later than 5 working days after the return of the piece of work or, in the case of an exam, 5 working days from the date of release of results. For Term 3 2019 results, 5 working days after release of results will be 10 Jan 2020.
You can apply for a review of results for any of your assessment tasks.
If you are requesting a review of result for a group assessment, all participants must be in agreement before a request for a review of the group’s result may be requested. Please attach email confirmation from each group member when submitting your request (file size is limited to 2MB).
A review of your results may result in the mark going up or down.
If you wish to request a re-assessment of a piece of work, you should first discuss your performance with the Course Authority. If you still believe, after discussion, that the mark you've received doesn't reflect your performance, you may apply for re-assessment.
You'll be required to give reasons to justify your request for re-assessment. If you don't supply sufficient reasons, the School may decline to take action.
If you would like to have your results reviewed, please submit a Request for Review of Results here.
You must submit your application no later than 5 working days after the return of the piece of work or, in the case of an exam, 5 working days from the date of release of results.
Keep all marked work in case it is needed for re-marking.
