Final Unit to Complete
For students enrolled in Business and Law courses only
The 'Final Unit to Complete' (FUTC) provision, described in clauses 56-62 of the Assessment (Higher Education Courses) Procedure, offers you the opportunity of a Pass Conceded grade (PC) or Supplementary Assessment where you are one credit point short of completing your degree.
You must apply to the Faculty which owns your course:
Course codes starting with A or E: Faculty of Arts and Education
Course codes starting with H: Faculty of Health
Course codes starting with S: Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment
- The Faculty Academic Progress Committee (FAPC) will usually award a PC grade over a Supplementary Assessment if you are eligible for both.
- Neither PC grades nor Supplementary Assessment will be awarded for units worth 2 credit points, or if you have more than one credit point remaining to complete the course.
- If you opt for Supplementary Assessment, the outcome:
- does not guarantee a pass in the unit
- is final and there is no further opportunity for additional supplementary assessment, review of result or PC grade
|Pass Conceded requirements||Supplementary Assessment requirements|
|Outcome: if awarded, a PC grade and eligibility to graduate||Outcome: if awarded, a supplementary assessment with a maximum possible grade of 50P and there is no guarantee of a pass|
How to apply
Applications for Trimester 3 2018 will open at 6pm on Thursday 1 March 2018.
