Grades update due to COVID-19

Students who fail a course in Trimester 1 2020, Study Period 1 and Study Session 1 2020, and Teaching Periods 1 to 3 2020 will not have a fail grade recorded on their academic record or included in calculations of their Grade Point Average (GPA).

A new grade NOG – No Grade Associated has been introduced to manage this, and the following fail grades will be converted to this new grade: 1, 2, 3, NGF – Non Graded Fail and FNS – Failed no Assessment Submitted. Students will still need to repeat the course and will be liable for fees.

In addition, students who withdraw from their courses after the census date will only have a W - Withdrawal grade recorded on their academic record and will not be included in the calculations of their Grade Point Average (GPA).
