Request a review of your results

If you believe your grade is not a reflection of your efforts and have considered the
failing a subject page
, you can request a review of your results.

  • Seek feedback

    If you have any queries about your mark, you should initially seek feedback by speaking to your subject coordinator about the reasons for your grade in that particular subject.

    These discussions can help you understand your overall result; they are not an opportunity to request that your exam paper be re-marked or that your mark be adjusted.

    If you have performed below expectations in an exam and wish to view your paper, you may do so by requesting a script viewing session. Some Departments, Schools and Faculties have official script viewing sessions for each subject. If your subject does not have an official viewing session, contact the subject coordinator.

    Exam review appointments for Faculty of Business and Economics students are available for undergraduate and graduate subjects.

  • Reassessment

    Reassessment is not available in all courses. The dean determines the availability of reassessment and publishes applicable details in subject outlines. Refer to the Assessment and Results policy for more information.

  • Reviewing a Result

    If, after you have sought feedback from teaching staff, you wish to request a review your result, please visit the seeking a review of a result.

Frequently asked questions

  • What do I do if I fail a subject?

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

  • What is my Weighted Average Mark (WAM)?

    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).

    The WAM is updated progressively as results are certified and 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 in which you are enrolled. For more information visit Weighted Average Mark (WAM).
