Common results questions
If you have any questions or concerns about your assessment, or the outcome of your results, it is best to speak to your Unit Chair or Unit Coordinator. You can find their contact details on the Find Deakin Staff on the Contact us page.
In the meantime - here are some answers to questions you may have.
Firstly - woohoo! If you think you have completed all the requirements for your course, check out the Graduation website for more details.
Routine feedback will not normally be provided to students for individual exam papers. There is a formal process for conducting a Review of Results (please refer to the next question).
You may apply to the Unit Chair to check the administrative accuracy of your result.
There is also a formal process to apply for a review of result through each Faculty Academic Progress and Discipline Committee (FAPDC) within 5 working days release of results. The procedure is outlined in the Assessment (Higher Education Courses) Procedure. Before starting this process, you should discuss this with your Faculty. The Review of Result process may result in your grade/mark being marked higher or lower. These webpages below provide links to each Faculty's process for Review of Results.
- Arts and Education - review of result
- Business and Law - review of result
- Health - review of result (requires authentication)
- Science, Engineering and Built Environment - review of result
There is no fee charged to request a review of your results.
You may be eligible for a pass conceded (PC) if you are one credit point short of completing your course and meet certain other conditions. The eligibility criteria are outlined in the Assessment (Higher Education Courses) procedure. Refer to your Faculty site below for further information and the process to apply.
It is recommended that students re-enrol but it is the student's responsibility to check withdrawal dates, fees and penalties in case the grade is successful. Study-at-Deakin
