    Results and grading scales

    Results

    Module results are determined in two stages:

    1. Subject Assessment Boards –Teaching staff in conjunction with external examination assessors.
    2. Programme Progression Boards (non-finalists - to determine progression on programme), or  School Assessment Boards (finalists - to determine final awards)

    All results are published on MyUnihub on the date listed in your academic calendar.
    The University also relays your current status to the local education authorities, where applicable.

    Grading scales

    The University has a 1-20 grading scale, with grade 1 being the highest grade.  Level 1 modules, which do not contribute to the final classification may be awarded a Y grade (ungraded pass).

    • Other Grading Definitions

      • Administrative Grades

        X Ineligible for assessment due to inadequate participation in the learning process but may be retaken with permission.
        I Incomplete with good reason. (May be assessed without penalty at the next available opportunity)
        U Academic misconduct allegation being investigated.
        P Fail - Academic misconduct proven.
        Y Ungraded pass (No numerical value for classification of qualifications).
        S Aegrotat.
        H Not assessed.
        (Students not following Middlesex qualifications only)

        Administrative grades may sometimes be added to a numerical grade either to indicate any additional action that needs to be taken by the student regarding further assessment or to confirm a decision taken
        by a first or second tier Board:

        C Compensated failure
        For the purposes of degree classification a compensated grade counts as a 16.
