University Grades

Accessing your results

Examination results will be available via OASIS approximately three weeks after the examination period.

The tables below represents the University Grading System used at Curtin.

The grades and mark range seen below will 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.
PC Conceded Pass The Board of Examiners has conceded a pass for the unit even though the student's percentage mark is less than the deemed pass mark for the unit.
PX Pass After Supplementary Assessment Student has passed the unit following a Supplementary Assessment. PX shall replace the previously recorded X.
FX Fail After Supplementary Assessment Student has failed the unit following a Supplementary 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 Supplementary Assessment Student, who otherwise would be awarded a grade of F or FAIL, is granted a Supplementary Assessment by a Board of Examiners. Once the supplementary assessment is completed, the student shall be awarded a grade of either PX (Pass After Supplementary Assessment) or FX (Fail After Supplementary 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).
