Assessment Appeal:

2020 New Grading System:

We recognise that this year 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.

This new grading system will allow you to opt-in to change most 2020 grades to either Course Requirements Satisfied (CRS) instead of a passing grade, or Course Requirements Not Satisfied (CRN) instead of a fail grade. More information can be found on this webpage.
