Glyndwr University Exam Results
Notification of results to students on Undergraduate (UG) and Postgraduate Taught (PGT) Programmes 2016/17
During the year, you will be given provisional marks by your tutors as part of your feedback on assessments. This is to help you with your learning, give an indication of how well you are achieving and what you need to do to improve in the future. However, all provisional marks are then subject to moderation as part of an independent external examining process. This is part of a quality assurance framework that enables the University to ensure all its assessment and marking processes are fair, rigorous and of a suitable standard. Once marks are agreed with the external examiners they are presented to a University Assessment Board for consideration and confirmation. Following the Assessment Boards, you will receive confirmed results from Academic Registry. This will be done in slightly different ways at different points of your programme.
The University holds three main cycles of assessment boards in February, June and September.
You will not receive confirmed results or information on how and when to undertake any deferred or referred modules until the end of the current level of your programme. The main progression and award assessment boards at the end of your level of study are usually in late May for many programmes at Wrexham, but can be at any of the three assessment points for programmes at GUL or some partners. The format for the communication of these confirmed results will depend on your actual results. If you have passed all your modules so far and are continuing on your programme, results will be online and you will be notified in the form of an email only. If you have completed your programme or have any reassessments or deferrals to undertake as well as online results a letter and transcript that will be sent to your home address on or before a specified date. These letters will also give details of any reassessments you need to undertake and when these reassessments will take place. Further information on reassessment opportunities can be found in the Academic Regulations which are available on Moodle.
Following reassessment, your work is submitted to the next available board and you will be sent a formal results email or letter, in hard copy to your home addresses, in the usual way as outlined above.
Postgraduate Masters Programmes
After the main progression and award assessment boards, at the end of the ‘taught’ stage of your master’s programme, the format of these confirmed results depend on your actual results. If you have passed all your modules so far, results will be available online. If you have either (i) completed all taught modules and are progressing to dissertation (ii) completed your programme, or (iii) any reassessment to take, as well as online results a letter and transcript will be sent to your home address on a set date. These will also give details of any reassessments you need to undertake and when these will take place. Further information on this can be found in the Academic Regulations which are available on Moodle.
You will not receive information on how and when to undertake any deferred or referred modules until the end of the taught stage of your programme. Depending on the number of credits you have not passed you may have to undertake reassessments before progressing to the dissertation stage, Specific reassessment requirements for individual students will be included in their results letter. Further information can be found in the Academic Regulations.
Following reassessment, your work is submitted to the next available board and you will be sent an email or formal results letters, in hard copy to your home address, in the usual way. Students on programmes at GUL and partners where there are multiple intakes should also read the document on GUL & Partner 2 or 3-intake programmes – agreed patterns of delivery and progression.
Semester One results
For some undergraduate programmes at GUL, partner colleges and for some PGT programmes, it may also be necessary to have Semester One module assessment boards, and award/progression boards, usually in January, because for some students this is the end of their level of study. These award/progression boards may grant you reassessment opportunities if you have reached the end of your current level of study at this time. If you are a student whose marks go through an award /progression point at the end of Semester One, you will be sent a formal result email or letter, in to your home address, in the usual way as outlined above.
If Semester One is not the end of your level of study, your marks will not usually be confirmed by an assessment board at this time, but you will receive feedback and provisional marks from your tutors.
