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.

To accept the offer of a supplementary assessment the student must write to the Course Authority, noting their acceptance of the offer, within seven working days of the publication of the result. Failure to accept an offer within the specified time frame will automatically result in failure of the 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?

Students who pass a supplementary assessment will receive a final result of 50PS (supplementary pass) for the course.

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).
