I received a fail grade for one of my units. If I repeat the unit and receive a pass or a higher grade, will the fail grade disappear from my record?

Answer:

All the grades that you receive are shown on your Macquarie University official academic record. Therefore, even if you repeat the subject, the fail grade will remain on your record. Your WAM (Weighted Average Mark) or GPA (Grade Point Average) will reflect both grades/marks.
