|This box only appears if you are graduating.
It shows the award classification – in this example “2nd class hons grade 1”
It also shows the award mark in this case 66.7%.
Note that the award mark is based on a combination of annual marks – in this example a student in a three year degree will have an award mark based 70% on the third year mark and 30% on the second year mark.
|This box shows the result and mark for this period of study. In this example it is the result for third year. The annual mark includes only modules in which credits were earned.
|Credits academic year
||This is the total of credits earned (i.e. passed) this academic year.
|Credits Period of study
||This is the total credits earned in this period of study. It will be the same as the figure above except where you repeated a period of study, in which case it shows the cumulative credits from all attempts at the period.
|Credits to date
||Shows the cumulative credits in this qualification. In this example the student has completed three years, and earned 60 credits in each year, so has 180 credits.
The lower part of the statement of results shows the module and subject results for this academic year. For students repeating a period of study, the statement shows only the modules repeated, but the annual mark includes the modules from previous attempts.
Overall result: final year
If you are in final year, you will see one of these two results:
This means that you have completed your programme and met all the requirements. You will be awarded the qualification. You should also see an award mark (the overall mark for the award) and the award classification (e.g. second class honours).
This means that you have not yet met all the requirements for your qualification.
This might result from a mark below 40%, earning fewer credits than needed, or not meeting some other condition of the programme.
The award classifications:
|First Class Honours
|Second Class Honours Grade I
|Second Class Honours Grade II
|Third Class Honours
How the award mark is calculated
In undergraduate programmes, your award mark is a combination of your last year, and the earlier years.
- In a three year degree: the weighting is 70% final year and 30% second year.
- In a 4-year degree: the weighting is 70% final year, 20% third year and 10% second year (with the exception of a three year degree with a year study abroad – 70% final year, 30% second year).
This mix is not optional – it applies to all students with one exception.
The exception is that if you did all or part of second year in 2015-16 or before. If so, you may be eligible for a review, on the basis that you did second year before the changes were announced. This is the only exception that may be considered for review.
In a taught postgraduate degree, your award mark is the credit weighted average of all the modules making up the award.
Overall result, not in final year
If you are not in final year, you will get one of the following results:
This means that you have passed all modules without compensation. You can progress to the next year of study.
In some cases you may want a higher mark than a pass mark. This could arise if you want to transfer to a single major, or you want to transfer to another qualification. If you passed but need a higher mark to progress in your chosen path, you can normally use the supplemental resits to improve your results. If you are considering this, you should consult the relevant academic Department before making your decision.
You did not achieve a passing mark in all of your modules, but your results were sufficient to allow compensation. Because you have some modules that were passed by compensation, your result is restricted. The restriction is that you can only progress in the subjects that have a progression result. You may progress to the next year of study in any subject that has a subject result of Pass (P), Pass by Compensation (PC) or Allowed Progression (AP). In some cases you will have progression results in all of your subjects, and in that case this restriction will make no difference to your choices. If you want to progress in subjects which do not have a progression result, you will need to resit or repeat to improve your result and earn a progression result in the other subjects.
This means that you have some modules which were not eligible for compensation, and therefore you have a credit deficit. You may choose to progress to the next year, but you will carry a deficit and will need to take additional credits to make this up before graduating.
Even though progression is allowed, you are strongly advised to try to use the resit options to make up the deficit straight away. This will cost less in fees than the other alternatives, and will avoid having a heavier workload at a later stage in your degree.
Because you have not passed all modules, your result is restricted. The restriction is that you can only progress in the subjects that have a progression result. You may progress to the next year of study in any subject that has a subject result of Pass (P), Pass by Compensation (PC) or Allowed Progression (AP). In some cases you will have progression results in all of your subjects, and in that case this restriction will make no difference to your choices.
If you want to progress in subjects which do not have a progression result, you will need to resit or repeat to improve your result and earn a progression result in the other subjects.
This means that you have sufficient credits to progress, but that there are some modules that you did not pass. Your result is restricted. The restriction is that you can only progress in the subjects that have a progression result. You may progress to the next year of study in any subject that has a subject result of Pass (P), Pass by Compensation (PC) or Allowed Progression (AP). In some cases you will have progression results in all of your subjects, and in that case this restriction will make no difference to your choices.
Restricted No Progression:
This means that your results were sufficient to allow compensation, and compensation has been applied to any modules in the compensation range (normally 35-39). However, you do not have a combination of subjects with a progression result that will allow you to continue to the next year. You will need to take the resits, or repeat, before progressing to the next year.
This result means that your results were not sufficient to allow progression. You were not eligible for compensation, so compensation was not applied.
You will need to retake some of your modules in order to progress to the next year.
Summary of annual results and their implications
Progress, but restricted to subjects with a progression result.
Progression results are Pass (P), Pass by Compensation (PC) or Allowed Progression (AP).
Progress, but with a credit deficit that must be made up before graduating. Progression is restricted to subjects with a progression result. Progression results are Pass (P), Pass by Compensation (PC) or Allowed Progression (AP).
||Progress, but restricted to subjects with a progression result. Progression results are Pass (P), Pass by Compensation (PC) or Allowed Progression (AP).
Restricted No Progression
Compensation applies but there is no viable progression path. Some additional work will be needed before progression.
The expected standard was not met. Some additional work will be needed before progression.
If you don’t understand your result, please have a look at the questions below. These are some of the frequently-asked questions, and the answer to your question may be here:
I have passed all the modules in a subject, so why is the subject result “not passed”?
This can arise for a number of reasons:
- If you have an average mark of under 40 in the subject, the result is not passed.
- If you have not passed at least half the credits in a subject without using compensation, the result is not passed.
- If you have a pass by compensation (PC) result in a module that is a required module the subject result will be not passed. You must pass a required module without compensation in order to progress in a subject.
My annual mark is over 40 so why is my overall result “not progress”?
The annual mark is calculated as the credit weighted average mark in the modules where you earned credits. If you have modules which you did not pass, these are excluded from the calculation. The first thing to check is the number of credits you passed. If you did not pass sufficient credits your result will be Not Progress.
My award mark would be higher if second year was excluded, can I have this changed?
In most cases the answer is no. The exception is that if you took some of your second year modules in 2015-16 or before, you may be able to have a review of composition of the award mark, because you did these modules before the change in rules was announced. See the section "Review under previous Marks and Standards".
If you have received your results, but you cannot understand where the annual mark, the subject mark or the award mark comes from, you can calculate them for yourself, using our Exams-Mark Calculator.
If you believe that an error was made in the calculation of your mark, you may seek a recheck. A recheck does not involve re-assessing your work. It is simply a check to make sure that all components of your work were properly included in the overall result.
A recheck must be submitted within 2 weeks of the publication of the examination results, and the form and further information can be found here.
You have the right to appeal an exam result.
Please note that an appeal is not a remarking of your paper. An appeal can only be made on one of two grounds:
- If there is evidence of substantive irregularity in the conduct of the examination
- If there are circumstances which the Programme Examination Board was not aware of when its decision was taken.
If you are considering an appeal, please read the details of the appeal process are available on the Registrar’s office website at https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/registrar/examination-recheck
Note: Requests for Exam Appeals must be submitted within 3 weeks of publication of results.
Please include your student number in all correspondence.
If you did not get the result you were hoping for, you may be able to improve your result by taking the resit options. Most modules with a written examination have a resit option. Some modules assessed by continuous assessment also allow a supplemental option over the summer.
If you want to take the resit option, you MUST register to resit. You will need to submit your registration form by 12th July.
If you register after that date you may find that the exams you want to take are scheduled at the same time, so please make sure to register before the deadline.
Full details on how to register will be available on the tab How to Register for Supplemental/Resit Exams below.
Autumn written examination will take place from Wednesday 7th August 2019 to Saturday 17th August (approximately), including Saturdays.
What do I need to resit?
- You should resit any module that they have not earned credits for.
- You should resit any module not passed (NP) result.
- You may resit any module with a mark of under 40 (even if PC).
Note: A module under 35 will never compensate.
A module over 35 may compensate, but if it is a required module, may still block progression.
To proceed in a subject with a required module you MUST have a full pass in that module.
Subject and associated modules and their requirements can be checked using Course Finder
There is normally no cap on a resit mark.
Module details can be checked on Course Finder and by contacting your department.
It is best to check by subject rather than module, as some modules may be required within a subject.
A required module is a compulsory module in a programme which must be passed without compensation (i.e. a mark of 40% achieved) in order to progress in that programme.
To check Course Finder: using the link above just enter your subject code and select your module from the list. When the module details appear go to the “assessment” section and all information should be there.
If a module is capped you may apply to have the cap waived using the Extenuating Circumstances form (RE1) available here: RE1 form
The University introduced new rules in May 2016, and applied them to the class that started from September 2016, and all subsequent classes. However if you are in the group that started before we made the change, we allow a review under the previous rules, if you are blocked from progression. Look at the table below to see which rules apply to you.
|Your year of study in 2018-19
||Which rules apply?
|First year, Second year, Third year and Fourth Year
| (2016) Marks and Standards.
Note that if you started your degree in 2015, you may have the option of a review under the previous rules IF (and only if) you are blocked from progression or graduation.
If your annual result is Incomplete, you may seek a review under the previous rules. If you would have progressed under the previous rules, your result will be adjusted accordingly.
See the section on review options for more information.
|Repeat academic year students
If repeating 4th year, you will be assessed under 2016 rules. However if you started your degree in 2015 or before you may be able to seek a review of your results.
See the section on review for more details.
Review under previous Marks and Standards
If you started your degree before the (2016) Marks and Standards were introduced, you may be eligible for a review under the previous rules. This will apply if ALL of the conditions below are true:
- You started your degree in 2015-16 or earlier.
- You have been registered each year since then without a break.
- You are blocked from progression (or graduating).
- You would have been able to progress (or graduate) if the old rules applied.
To apply for this review, you should wait until after the result have been released.
This form is now closed. Please contact the Exams Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any queries.
Review of the composition of the award mark
Your award mark is calculated as the weighted average of all of your years of study, excluding first year and years of study abroad. The weighting is adjusted so that the final year contributes 70%. This is shown in the table below.
Weighting of the award mark
|Three year degrees
||Three year degree with study abroad
||Four year degrees
If you are graduating this year, and did some of your second year modules in 2015-16 or before, you may request a review of the composition of the award mark. To apply for this review, you should wait until after the result have been released. This form is now closed. Please contact the Exams Office (email@example.com) with any queries.
Staff will be available in Academic Departments to meet students on Consultation Day, Wednesday 3rd July 2019. This is an opportunity to review your examination scripts and discuss your options with the department.
