Accessing Your Results
Results will be released on the below dates:
- 4th July 2023: Confirmed results and level/award decisions will be published for all Year 4 Finalists, and all Year 3 students (both Finalist and Progressing). Semester results will also be published for both September and January Entry MSc students.
- 17th July 2023: Confirmed results and level decisions will be published for all non-final year undergraduate students in Foundation Year, Year 1 and Year 2.
- 14th September 2023: Results from the August Supplementary period will be released for all undergraduate and MSc students.
- The enrolment timetable for the 2023/24 academic year can be accessed here.
To view your supplementary results, please sign into your MyUni account and access the University Intranet.
You will see the marks for each module throughout the academic year, as well as your supplementary marks. You can expand each module to see the assessment component marks.
For both September and January entry students with supplementaries, the results released in August will be your final, confirmed results for the 22-23 academic year. When final results are released, you will see:
- Your end of level decision i.e. the final outcome of your academic year.
- An attached results PDF document, which will open in another window. This document will give you a more detailed explanation of your results and your options.
You can download an official signed and stamped transcript of all your results so far from your University Intranet account by selecting the ‘Course Details’ tab on the left hand menu and then clicking on the ‘Transcript’ link on the right hand side of the page.
Your award certificate and transcript is also available via the Gradintel system. If you have not already done so, you may activate your Gradintel account by logging in to your MyUni dashboard and accessing the Gradintel area. To activate your Gradintel account, please look for an activation email delivered to your student email account. If you have any issues, please contact MyUniHub@swansea.ac.uk. Once your account has been activated you will have permanent access to your certificate and transcript and be able to securely share them with third parties.
Understanding your Results
When you view your results, the Level Decision indicates your overall outcome for the year. Next to your decision, you can also access a decision letter (a PDF document) which contains an explanation of your outcome. Please click the blue text which says 'An explanation of your Level Decision can be found by clicking here'. This will open in a separate window, so make sure you have pop-ups enabled.
Your year average takes into account all credit-bearing module marks. The relevant weighting is applied to each module given the amount of credits it is worth i.e. a 20-credit module will count twice as much towards your year average as a 10-credit module.
Module marks are calculated by giving each component mark the specific weighting assigned to it. For Engineering students, these weightings should be detailed in the Engineering Part 2 Handbooks for your year and programme. For Science programmes, please check Canvas module pages for information, and contact your Module Coordinators directly for any specific queries.
|Module Component||Weighting (%)||Weighting (Decimal)||Raw Component Mark (Out of 100)||Weighted Mark|
Module Mark = (56 x 0.7) + (62 x 0.1) + (69 x 0.2) = 39.2 + 6.2 + 13.8 = 59.2
The safety-net calculation below was applied to students’ modules during the 19 - 20 academic year only as a response to the initial impact of the Pandemic. If you were eligible for a Safety Net calculation in 2019 - 20, the Safety Net calculation will not appear on your record as a progressing student, but has been saved and will be considered when awarding your degree classification in your final year. If you are a Final Year student in 2022-23, your 2019-20 Safety Net classification will be considered when calculating your final degree award in July.
If you have a module with ‘QF’ as the outcome, this means that you have failed to qualify for a pass in the module even if your overall module mark is above the pass mark threshold. This is because there is a component of the module which you are required to pass or attain a certain mark in before you can progress or receive your degree. The reason a pass or given mark is required in certain components is to ensure that specific learning outcomes for the module are met. If you have a module with a ‘QF’, you cannot tolerate it and will be entered for the failure redemption assessment in the August Supplementary Assessment Period.
For Engineering programes, specific module rules are identified in the Part 2 Handbook for your programme or on Canvas.
For Science programmes, please consult with your module coordinators directly for any queries related to specific modules.
For students sitting supplementary exams in the August exam period, please note this is the final attempt to redeem any failed modules for this academic year. Therefore, unless indicated on your level decision, there will be no further attempts to redeem failed modules following the supplementary exams.
If you have met the criteria, you may be offered a repeat level of study decision. More information can be found here: Repeat Level of Study Options.
Please note that students cannot progress to the next level of study until all criteria is met for your course and level of study. Further information can be found here: Assessment Regulations.
Swansea University does not allow elective resits. Following your End of Year results in July (September for January Entry Year 1 students), you will not be granted a resit in any module which you have passed.
In the event that you re-sit a failed module and achieve a lower mark, the University will apply the ‘Best Mark Principle’ and your original assessment mark will be included on your transcript and in your level/award calculation.
If following the August Supplementary Exams you think a mark may not be correct, you may request an Accuracy of Published Marks check within 10 working days of the release of results. Before submitting any request, please read the information below.
The Accuracy of Published Marks procedure is available to all students who feel that one or more of their module marks may not be correct.
- The process will ensure that marks recorded for assessment components and the overall module are free from administrative and/or arithmetical error e.g. that marks have been transferred into the Exam System correctly, that marks have been added up correctly on an exam script etc.
- It does not involve assessments being re-marked nor will it provide further information as to the reasons for particular marks having been awarded.
- Please be aware that module marks can decrease as well as increase following an Accuracy of Published Marks Check Request.
- Students must complete a Request to Confirm Accuracy of Published Marks form online, no later than 10 working-days from the release date of your results (this form will be open for submissions from the day that results are released).
- The faculty has a response target of 5 working-days to provide an outcome. However, please be aware that we deal with a high volume of requests and may not be able to meet this target in every case.
If you have any questions about the process please contact the faculty Exams team by emailing email@example.com or see the University's Accuracy of Published Marks FAQ document and University APM guidance.
If you want to appeal against a decision taken by the University Examination Board, you can submit an Academic Appeal Form to the Student Cases Team following the publication of your End of Year result. Please refer to the University's Academic Appeal advice page and contact the Student's Union Advice Centre for support with your application.
Please be aware we as a Faculty are not able to directly advise students with this process.
