Supplementary exams for Science students

Am I eligible for a supplementary examination if I am an undergraduate Science student?

If you have been granted a supplementary assessment, your grade will appear as “SG” in studentConnect when results are released for that semester. You cannot apply for supplementary assessment, a supplementary assessment is granted automatically by the Board of Examiners.

Supplementary assessments are offered to undergraduate students only under the following circumstances:

  • for a unit you are currently enrolled in; and
  • it is the only remaining unit required for your degree completion; and
  • you have achieved a mark between 45-49% in that unit; and
  • you have achieved a mark of 45% or higher in an assessment component for the unit which  mandates a minimum level of performance as a requirement for passing that unit, if there is a failed component indicated in the assessment mechanism of that unit.

For some undergraduate science units (usually level 1 only), supplementary assessment opportunities may be offered to students whose marks fall between 45-49%. The unit details pages in the handbook specify whether or not a unit offers a supplementary assessment under the "Assessments" section.
