Your results, grades and progress

Your final results will be published on the dates set in the academic calendar and will be available via OASIS.

Any results you receive as a Curtin student will appear on your Academic Transcript. To find out how you can get a copy of your Academic Transcript view the official documents page.

If you have a sanction or exclusion placed on your record (e.g. outstanding fees, library fines) you will be unable to access your results, be provided with an Academic Transcript or graduate until you have cleared the sanction or exclusion.

The grades and marks you receive have been assigned based on the University grading system. These grades and your School’s Board of Examiners will determine your academic status.

University grading system

The tables below represent the grading system used at Curtin.

The grades and mark range correspond with the grades that you will see on your Academic eRecord and Academic Transcript. An unofficial Academic Transcript (Academic eRecord) containing past results can be accessed via your My Results tab of eStudent in OASIS.

Pass/Fail units - final grades

Grade Description Application
PASS Pass Student has passed a unit classified as a Pass/Fail unit.
FAIL Fail Student has failed a unit classified as a Pass/Fail unit.
PX Pass After Further Assessment Student has passed the unit following a Further Assessment. PX shall replace the previously recorded X.
FX Fail After Further Assessment Student has failed the unit following a Further Assessment. FX shall replace the previously recorded X.
F-IN Fail - Incomplete/ Insufficient Assessment May be used as an alternative to FAIL at the discretion of the Board of Examiners where a student has not completed or submitted all required assessable work for the unit.
ANN Result Annulled Due to Academic Misconduct

An ANN grade shall remain on the student's academic record for a minimum period of 12 months after the student ceases study at Curtin University. After this period, a student may apply to the Academic Registrar to have the ANN grade converted to a FAIL (Pass/Fail units) or an F:0 (grade/mark units). The application must be in writing and provide an explanation of the circumstances of the original offence and justification for converting the ANN grade. The Academic Registrar shall take into account the views of the relevant Head of School in making a decision whether to convert the ANN to a FAIL or F:0. In deciding whether to approve the conversion of an ANN grade to a FAIL or F:0, the Academic Registrar may take into account any relevant factors including:

  • the circumstances of the original offence and the level of seriousness of the academic misconduct that led to the imposition of the ANN grade or grades;
  • whether the student was found guilty of more than one instance of academic misconduct;
  • the period of time that has elapsed since the ANN grade or grades were imposed.

The Academic Registrar may refuse to convert an ANN grade to a FAIL or F:0 where a student has been found guilty of more than one instance of academic misconduct or where the offence was of such magnitude that conversion to a FAIL or F:0 is considered inappropriate.

Interim grades

Used for both Pass/Fail and Grade/Mark units.

Grade Description Application
X Outstanding Further Assessment Student, who otherwise would be awarded a grade of F or FAIL, is granted a Further Assessment by a Board of Examiners. Once the further assessment is completed, the student shall be awarded a grade of either PX (Pass After Further Assessment) or FX (Fail After Further Assessment). In both cases, for Grade/Mark units the original mark shall be retained. An X grade must be converted to a final result by no later than the end of the subsequent study period in which the student is enrolled. Any extension must be approved by the Director, Student Services (or delegate).
DA Deferred Assessment Where a final component of assessed work within a unit of study is approved to be done at a later date, but not later than the end of the next study period in which the student is enrolled. A DA grade must be converted to a final result by no later than the end of the subsequent study period in which the student is enrolled. Any extension must be approved by the Director, Student Services (or delegate).
OA Ongoing Assessment This interim grade may be used where assessment tasks and assessment for a unit cover more than one study period (the study period of enrolment and the subsequent study period). The OA grade may be used as an interim (holding) grade until the assessment tasks and assessment are completed. An OA grade must be converted to a final result by no later than the end of the subsequent study period in which the student is enrolled. Any extension must be approved by the Director, Student Services (or delegate).
GNS Grade Not Submitted A result in a unit is not available to the Board of Examiners because marking is not complete. A GNS is an interim grade and must be converted to a final grade within 1 month after the Board of Examiners. Any extension must be approved by the Director, Student Services (or delegate).

Further assessments

Further assessment is also known as a supplementary assessment.

There is no application process to apply for a further assessment. Further assessment may only be approved by the Board of Examiners if you:

  • Are enrolled in a unit within your first 200 credit point of study in your course or it is the final study period of your course
  • Have attempted all required assessment tasks for the unit and have marginally failed the unit
  • Have not been found guilty of Academic Misconduct in that unit.

If you are eligible for a further assessment you may only be offered two opportunities for a bachelor level course or one for all other courses.

If you are granted a further assessment you will be notified of the date, time and venue in writing via either

  • your Official Communication Channel in OASIS
  • a hard copy letter
  • an email to your student provided account.

If you pass the further assessment, you will be awarded a pass in the unit. The mark of the initial examination or assessment will be retained.

It is your responsibility to be available to attend or complete the further assessment based on the instructions provided by the organising area.

International onshore students must attend their further assessment at the Curtin campus in which they are enrolled.

Understanding academic status

Your academic status is based upon your academic performance and is determined at the end of each study period by the Board of Examiners. There are three academic status levels.

Good Standing

This means you are achieving satisfactory results and you can continue your course and re‑enrol.

Students on a status of Good Standing have a semester weighted average (SWA) of 50 or higher.

Conditional

A Conditional status means you are at risk of not achieving satisfactory course progress.

You are permitted to re-enrol but may be subject to conditions which are determined by the Head of School. The conditions are to help you improve your academic progress.

Terminated

A Terminated status means you are not achieving satisfactory course progress and have been terminated from your course.

You are not permitted to re-enrol in your course.
