Frequently asked questions

Visit the Failing a subject page for information on what happens if you fail a subject and what to do next.

Throughout your degree you are given a Weighted Average Mark (WAM). The WAM gives you an indication of your overall academic performance in your degree and can be viewed in my.unimelb. At some other institutions, this may be known as a Grade Point Average (GPA).

When can I see my WAM?
The WAM is updated progressively as results are added to your record, so the best time to view your WAM is when you can see all of your results for the last study period.
