2021 Grading System

Semester 2, 2021 is the final semester for which the CRS/CRS adjustment will be in place.

CRS/CRN will not be available for courses in 2022 or beyond. 

What is the CRS/CRN grading system?

The CRS/CRN grading system supports students who have experienced extraordinary circumstances in the context of COVID-19 and/or overseas political circumstances.
This grading system will allow you to opt-in to change most 2021 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.

Conditions apply.
