Exam information


In accordance with the University Assessment Grades/Codes, the College applies the following scale when awarding grades:

Final pass grades
HD High Distinction 80-100%
D Distinction 70-79%
CR Credit 60-69%
P Pass 50-59%
PS Pass at supplementary examination 50%
Final fail grades
N Fail 0-49%
NCN Not completed / Fail Not graded
WN Withdrawn with failure Not graded
Interim codes
DA Deferred assessment N/A
PX Offered supplementary assessment N/A
RP Result pending N/A
WA Grade withheld for administrative reasons N/A
WD Withdrawn without failure N/A


Scaling can increase or decrease a mark but does not change the order of marks relative to the other students in the course. If it is decided that scaling is appropriate, then the final mark awarded in a course may differ from the aggregation of the raw marks of each assessment component.

Results Notification

To access results students should check their ISIS accounts on the advertised date for release of examination results. After publication students enquiring about results must provide an ANU student card as proof of identification. For privacy reasons students should not make enquiries regarding the results of other students.

Examination Timetable: Final Examination Period

Details of the final examination timetable are available on the ANU Timetabling website. Students are expected to check the time of examinations themselves.

Examination Timetable: Mid-Semester Examinations

When a mid-semester exam is scheduled, timetable information will be posted by the relevant School.

The University's Discipline Rules apply to all students, undergraduate and graduate, and define misconduct in relation to an examination as including but not limited to:

  • cheating
  • plagiarism
  • except with the approval of the Delegated Authority, submitting for an examination any work previously submitted for examination
  • failing to comply with the University's instructions to students at, or in relation to, an examination
  • acting, or assisting another person to act, dishonestly in or in connection with an examination
  • taking a prohibited document into an examination venue.
