Frequently asked questions
- I failed a subject
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).
First Half Year and Second Half Year 2020 subjects will not be included in the calculation of a student’s Weighted Average Mark (WAM) unless the mark achieved for the subject is equal to or higher than the WAM the student had achieved at the beginning of the semester. Find out more about WAM assessment updates.
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.

- Visit the Academic Skills website and take advantage of their services including individual tutorials, workshops, and online resources.
