Results FAQs


Results questions

How will I receive my results?

Results are sent by email and are also available in My Student Records (MySR).(opens in a new window)

When will I receive my results?

Results are usually released one to two weeks after the final exams for the session.

You can check for upcoming results release dates at www.westernsydney.edu.au/dates.

Why can't I see my results?

Please check throughout the day as you may not receive your results email until the afternoon/evening. If you have an encumbrance on your student record, you will not see your results in your email or in MySR.

If an encumbrance was placed on your record, an email notification would have automatically been sent to your Western Sydney University student email account which includes instruction on how to have the encumbrance lifted.

Results for previous study sessions will not be displayed in your email or on your results page in MySR. To see previous session's results in MySR go to:

  • Course and Unit details (listed under the 'Course Details' heading)
  • Click on 'show details' under the course code you want to see results for
  • Then click on the units for the course

I didn't receive my results email. What does this mean?

If you didn't receive your results email, there may have been a technical problem with the system. Continue to monitor your emails for advice, and your results should also be available in MySR.

I got an "I", "J" or "N" grade. What does that mean?

I = Incomplete (assessment tasks incomplete due to illness or misadventure)
J = Deferred exam (due to illness or misadventure, with formal approval granted for the student to sit an alternative to the formal scheduled exam)
N = Result pending (grade still to be finalised)

For a full list of grades, please view the Results webpage.

I can't see my results but can see my credit points have changed yet my GPA hasn't? 

You will need to wait for your results to be released. You can check for upcoming results release dates at www.westernsydney.edu.au/dates.

If I am not happy with my results, what can I do?

Firstly speak to your Unit Coordinator. If you are unable to resolve the matter you can apply for a Review of Grade. All Review of Grade applications are made through eForms.

You should read the Review of Grade information before submitting your application.

Why has my GPA dropped?

GPAs are calculated over the duration of your enrolment involving a specific calculation. This calculation uses the number of units, grades achieved and unit credit points. For example, if you have done poorly in a unit carrying more than 10 credit points, it will have a greater impact on your GPA than a unit of only 10 credit points.

How is my GPA calculated?

GPA = the sum of (credit points for the same specific unit x grade points for the specific unit)/total number of credit points attempted.
 
Please view the Graduation Policy for more GPA information.

I am experiencing difficulties accessing my results on MySR

Please check your student email account to view your results email or refresh MySR. If your results are not displaying MySR may be experiencing a temporary load issue.

The most common problem students have is that pop-up blockers are preventing MySR from working properly - you might click on MySR and nothing happens. You will find instructions for disabling many common pop-up blockers on the MySR help page.

You may not be able to see your results if you have an encumbrance on your record.

If you have any other issues when using MySR, call the Student Central Infoline on 1300 668 370.

I have failed one (or more) units. Can I reenrol? How do I reenrol?

Provided you have not failed a progression rule, you will be able to reenrol if the unit is offered in the next session. You must meet any pre-requisites and/or co-requisites needed for the unit.

If you are eligible to reenrol, please do so through MySR. However, you should meet with your Director of Academic Program or Academic Course Advisor to discuss your course progression and seek advice regarding your studies. If you are required or choose to repeat a unit that you have have already studied, the fee attached to that unit will be reapplied and you will need to pay as you normally would with any unit of study even if you paid it when you first studied that unit.

Your grades will carefully be checked against all progression rules after the results release date. If you do not meet progression rules or are 'at risk' you will receive an email to your student email account with further instructions in the days following results release. Progression emails will be sent following results release.

For more information go to the Progression webpage.

The University runs programs and courses to develop students' academic literacy, mathematics and study skills which are listed on the Workshops webpage.

I have already enrolled for next session, however one of my units now says INVALID. What does that mean?

  • You have most likely failed a pre-requisite or co-requisite that is required to be completed before enrolment in this unit, or
  • You may have already achieved or have exceeded the maximum allowable credit points at level Z (unspecified advanced standing), or levels 1 and/or 2.

All the units I am enrolled in for the next session have been cancelled or discontinued. Why?

You may have failed a progression rule and you should monitor your student email for advice on your progression. Progression emails will be sent in the days following results release.

If you still have questions please call the Student Central Infoline on 1300 668 370.

I have received a progression email. What do I do now?

Your progression email will state whether you are 'At Risk', on 'Conditional Enrolment' or if you have been 'Excluded'. The email also contains detailed instructions regarding the next steps to take.

For more information refer to the Progression webpage.
