Exam board outcomes
At the end of each stage of your programme, school and faculty exam boards meet. They decide whether you have met the requirements for progression or for an award.
Assessment marks and unit results
Assessment marks and unit results are provisional until ratified by an exam board. Schools will publish marks and results after exam boards and email you when you can access them in eVision.
Understanding your results
When your assessment and/or unit marks are published, you can see mark signals next to the provisional and confirmed mark.
Mark signals provide information about your assessment marks and unit results, and indicate whether you need to attempt assessments again.
Understand the mark signals on your assessments, units and transcripts.
Your programme outcome is the decision made by an exam board about your progression to the next stage of your study.
You can usually view your programme outcome for the academic year after the summer and reassessment exam boards. This is usually released at the same time as your unit results.
When it is available, your programme outcome will be displayed below the unit details for the relevant academic year in eVision.
For outcomes other than progression to the next year of study, there will be a brief comment that describes the outcome and whether it is an appealable decision.
Find out what each of these outcomes mean:
- Resits and supplementary assessments
- Continued part-time study
- Supplementary year
- Conditional progression
- Progress and transfer
- Required to transfer
- Required to withdraw
