Guide to grades

Each course a student undertakes at UNSW is assessed using a variety of methods. Course authorities are responsible for assigning a single, final result to each student who has enrolled in any of their courses throughout the semester.

This result generally takes the form of a mark between 0 and 100 which determines your final grade.
