To view your results please sign into your MyUni account and access the University Intranet. Then click on the ‘Course Details’ section on the lefthand side menu and select ‘2021 modules’ for the 2021-22 academic year.
You will see the marks for each module throughout the academic year. You can expand each module to see the assessment component marks.
For September Entry students, the results released in July will be your final, confirmed results for the 21-22 academic year. When final results are released in July 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.
For January Entry students, the results released in July will be provisional marks for the Spring Semester. These marks will be provisional until confirmed, and your final confirmed marks will be released after you have completed all of your taught modules.
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 2021-22, 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.
- Once final confirmed results are published in July 2022, all full-time non-finalist Science and Engineering students will be automatically entered for re-sits in up to 60 credits of failed modules, where supplementary assessments are possible. Please note that for a small number of modules that are based on practical/lab work, group work, or design work, it will not be possible to have supplementary assessments and still meet learning outcomes, and for these modules there are either additional criteria to be eligible for redemption, or it is not possible to offer failure redemption.
- For Engineering students, please refer to the module descriptions in the Part 2 Handbooks to see which modules have additional criteria for redemption and which modules are not redeemable. For Science students, please refer to the Science Handbooks available on FSE Intranet, or contact your Module Coordinator to ask about failure redemption.
- For programmes that allow Tolerated Failures, any failed modules that are eligible will be automatically counted as Tolerated Failures to allow progression provided all other progression criteria are met.
- All supplementary assessment marks are not capped in Foundation Year and Year 1, but are capped for Year 2 and Year 3 students on 4-year advanced programmes, unless appropriate Extenuating Circumstances apply.
- If you have failed more than 60 credits upon the publication of End of Year results in July but have passed 20 credits, you will not be entered for re-sits, and will instead be offered the opportunity to Repeat the Level of Study.
- Students may only repeat a level of study once, and in the event that you are already enrolled on a Repeat Level / Repeat Failed Modules year, no further opportunity will be granted and you will be withdrawn from your programme.
- If you have not passed the minimum 20 credits needed for a Repeat Level of Study, you will be withdrawn from your programme.
Year 3 students on 4-Year programmes
Students in Year 3 of 4-year Masters of Engineering programmes (MEng) are entitled to 20 credits of resits, and must have an average of 55% once they have completed those resits.
Therefore students on MEng Year 3 must pass 100 credits in order to be granted resits. If you do not pass 100 credits they will be transferred onto the 3-year BEng programme and will follow the finalist rules for resits (please see the notes for Finalists in Engineering programmes below).
Students in Year 3 of 4-year Masters of Science programmes (MPhys and MMath) will follow the usual progression rules and are therefore entitled to 60 credits of resits at Year 3 (as above).
Finalists in Science programmes
- In the final year, students may tolerate up to 40 credits of failed modules down to a mark of 0%. Any failed modules that are eligible will be automatically counted as Tolerated Failures, provided all other progression/award criteria are met.
- Re-sit of final year modules will only be granted where previously agreed as a result of approved Extenuating Circumstances (i.e. deferrals). Please note that Final Year students with deferrals to August will miss graduation in July, and will be invited to January graduation instead if appropriate.
Finalists in Engineering programmes
- All Engineering modules are 'Core' and must be passed in order to award an accredited BEng/MEng degree in accordance with the Engineering Assessment Regulations.
- Bachelor/ Master of Engineering Finalist students who have not met the minimum requirements to graduate with an accredited degree, may be offered the opportunity to complete a re-sit in a maximum of 40 credits of failed modules, where supplementary assessments are possible.
- All re-sits will occur during the August Supplementary period, 8 - 19 August 2022.
- All students must achieve an overall level average of at least 35%, in line with the relevant standard assessment regulations.
- All supplementary assessment marks will be capped unless appropriate Extenuating Circumstances apply. Please note that Final Year students with either resits or deferrals to August will miss graduation in July, and will be invited to January graduation instead if appropriate.
- For students enrolled on the BSc Software Engineering, this is a Science programme, please refer to the guidance for Science students above.
MSc Taught Programmes
- Students who are enrolled on MSc Taught programmes will be automatically scheduled for resits in all failed modules, where supplementary assessments are possible.
- For students on Science MSc programmes where Tolerated Failures are allowed, students may request to tolerate up to 30 credits of failed non-CORE modules within 10 working days of the release of their End of Year results in June, provided that they have all of the progression criteria for their programme. Failed modules will not be automatically tolerated, and students will need to apply for Toleration within the 10-day timeframe. Toleration will be allowed provided:
- The overall average mark for Part One is 50%
- Students must apply to request tolerated failures if they are eligible.
- The marks for the failed modules are between 40 - 49%.
- Student has achieved at least 90 credits of passed modules.
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.
Marks will be capped in line with the notes below, unless supported by appropriate Extenuating Circumstances.
- If you are in Year 0 (Foundation) or Year 1 of your respective degree programme, your re-sits will not be capped.
- If you are in Year 2 or 3 of your respective degree programme, your re-sit results will be capped at 40%.
- If you are in Year 4 (M Level) or are enrolled on an MSc Taught Programme, your re-sits will be capped at 50%.
Please note, if you are in the Final Year of Study re-sits will be subject to the Assessment Regulations applying to your programme. Please ensure you check the Engineering or Science Regulations for the guidance which applies to you.
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.
Issues with Your Results
After your final, confirmed results are released in June/July, if you think that a mark may not be correct, you may request an Accuracy of Published Marks check, within 10 working days of the release date 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 want to appeal against a decision taken by the University Examination Board, you can submit an Academic Appeal Form to MyUni Hub following the publication of your End of Year result in July. 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.
