I have got a SC (special circumstance) grade - what does it mean?

Question:

I have got a SC (special circumstance) grade - what does it mean?

Answer:

A Special Circumstance or SC grade is awarded to students that do not meet the assessment requirements of a unit. It is only applicable to specific study periods that were impacted by COVID-19. If you don’t pass a unit: 

  • your results notification email will display an SC grade for that unit, and the mark you achieved. 
  • the corresponding mark will not be included in your WAM calculation 
  • your official transcript will just display just the SC grade, however no mark will be displayed.

 

You can find more information about SC Grade on our Grading System page.
