Marks for supplementary examinations

If you pass your supplementary exam you will receive a grade of PS (Pass Supplementary). No mark will show on your record, however a mark of 50 per cent will be used to calculate your weighted average mark (WAM) and grade point average (GPA).

If you fail your supplementary exam you will receive a grade of FS (Fail Supplementary). The original mark will show on your record and be used to calculate your weighted average mark (WAM) and grade point average (GPA) you received.
