2020 New Grading System

Last updated: 21 September 2020

What is the new grading system?

We recognise that 2020 has been a very disruptive time for you and your learning. To assist students during this time, a new grading system has been developed for 2020 coursework courses.
This new grading system will allow you to opt-in to change most 2020 coursework grades to:

Course Requirements Satisfied (CRS)

Instead of a passing grade e.g. High Distinction (HD), Distinction (D), Credit (C,  Pass (P) or Pass at a Supplementary Examination (PS). CRS means that course requirements have been met and that the course will count towards your degree or award. Please note, a CRS grade will not form part of your GPA calculation.

Course Requirements Not Satisfied (CRN)

Instead of a fail grade e.g. Fail (N) or Not Completed/Fail (NCN). Please note, a CRN grade will not count towards your GPA calculation and it will not be viewed as a fail in the context of your expected academic performance.


Am I eligible for the new grading system?

The new grading system is available for ANU students who were enrolled in coursework courses in 2020. To find out more, please select one of the relevant academic sessions listed below:
