Supplementary assessment

Supplementary examinations are available to students in certain circumstances under the provisions of the Assessment rules.

Students who will be offered a supplementary assessment:

  • those who receive a final fail result for a course that is between 45- 49 percent (inclusive)
  • those who fail a course because a pass in the final assessment is necessary to achieve a pass in the course, and the student achieves a final result for the course of not less than 45 percent.

Students who won't be offered a supplementary assessment:

  • those not meeting the criteria above
  • those who receive a final fail result of NCN (not completed/fail).

How will a supplementary assessment be offered?

Students who are eligible to sit a supplementary assessment will receive a PX (offered supplementary assessment) result for the relevant course.

The University will notify the student of the time, place and form of the supplementary assessment.

What happens if I pass the supplementary assessment?

What happens if I fail the supplementary assessment?

Students who fail the supplementary assessment will receive the original result with a final result of N (fail) or NCN (not complete/fail).
