Release of Marks

All during-term assessment marks will be recorded on the Mathematics database and be made available on the Mathematics secure student web portal normally within seven days of the assessment being marked and returned to the student, or the end of the teaching term - whichever is the earlier. 

All marks will be available only to the student to whom they are allocated. In addition, a small amount of information on the distribution of marks for all the students in the course may also be made available. (Note that the distribution will only be for those marks that have already been entered, so may not be accurate until a week or so after the marks are first displayed.)

Students are to check their recorded marks promptly and inform the Course Convenor if there is any error or omission. This must be done no later than the first Friday after classes finish. Any request to correct a mark that is received after exams start will not be accepted even if there is an error.

The School of Mathematics and Statistics will publish on its secure student web portal provisional marks in all its courses (for which assessment is completed) by the end of the week in which exams finish. The provisional mark will be the same as the mark that the School sends to the University. It is possible, but not common, for this mark to alter as all final marks must be approved by a Faculty Examinations Committee which can alter marks, for example by asking that all marks in a course be re-scaled.

Final marks and grades in all courses will be available from the University at a date that is announced, but is usually the end of the week about 10 days after the end of the exam period. The School of Mathematics and Statistics will also display these marks and grades on their secure student web portal for a short time at the same time. In some cases the Mathematics web portal will show marks and grades where the University only shows a grade. In any situation where there is a difference in mark or grade between the University and Mathematics, the higher one will be taken as the correct one.

Offers of Additional Assessment arising from illness or misadventure will show as a WC grade. The Mathematics secure student web portal may also show a mark. Additional assessment will only be given for approved Special Consideration applications through MyUNSW.

Students are now email from the Exams Branch as to when their Additional Aseesment or Supplemetary Exam will be held.
