ZN grades - What do they mean?

A ZN grade means that you have been granted a supplementary assessment. If you have a ZN grade, check your student email for information about your supplementary assessment. Sometimes these emails don't arrive until the day after results are released. If you haven't received an email, or you need more information about the arrangements for your supplementary assessment, contact your Course Coordinator.

Assignment marks

If you don’t understand the marks or written feedback that you received for an assignment, the first thing you can do is email your lecturer or tutor and request a time to meet to discuss your assessment and feedback. Make sure you provide your name, student number, and which course (subject) and assignment you are enquiring about. Often being able to discuss and ask questions about your feedback is helpful and will put you in a good position to prepare your next assignment for the course.

Requesting a second marking

In some cases, after receiving more feedback, you might still disagree with the marks that you have received. If the grade that you have received differs substantially from your usual grades, then you may request a second marking by writing to your course coordinator. The relevant University Procedure is the Higher Education Assessment Procedure Section 9. B Requesting a second marking.

Appealing a grade

If there is a mark that you still disagree with at the end of the semester, a Final Grade Appeal may be an appropriate option to make your case for having your assessment re-marked. Please note there are strict time limits to submit this application. If it is earlier in the semester and you do not want to wait for a Final Grade Appeal, please get in touch with us and we are happy to discuss your options with you.
