If I fail a unit, then attempt it again successfully, will the fail grade still show on my academic transcript (record)?

Question:

If I fail a unit, then attempt it again successfully, will the fail grade still show on my academic transcript (record)?

Answer:

If you redo and pass a unit that you previously failed, both grades will show on your academic transcript and be included in your WAM or GPA calculation.


From 2020 WAM will be used to measure your academic achievement instead of GPA.

WAM = Weighted average mark


WAM is a more accurate representation of your achievement because WAM calculations use your actual marks eg 56, 65, 89, 71 and so on. Your WAM will be the average of the actual marks you achieved in all units of your course and is a mark out of 100.

WAM also incorporates ALL marks, including those from a fail grade ie 35, 46 etc, whereas GPA gives a calculation of zero for any fail grades.
