*This question is specific to OUA students only*

At UniSA you will be awarded a final grade and an assessment notation according to your performance in each unit of study.

Open Universities Australia has a generic system of notations across OUA providers, and the grade you obtain from UniSA will be converted in the OUA grades or notations if you obtain a statement of academic record or a statement of achievement through the OUA portal.

The following is a comparative table of the grading notations used by OUA and UniSA:

 Grade   UniSA Notation  OUA Notation  Notational %  Descriptor
 High distinction  HD  HD  85-100 Outstanding performance on all learning outcomes
 Distinction  D  D  75-84 Excellent performance on all learning outcomes
 Credit  C  C  65-74 High performance on all learning outcomes OR excellent performance on the majority of the learning outcomes
 Pass level 1  P1  P  55-64 Satisfactory performance on all learning outcomes OR high performance in some learning outcomes.
 Pass level 2  P2  P  54-50 Satisfactory performance on the majority of learning outcomes
 Fail level 1  F1  N  40-49  Unsatisfactory performance on a number of learning outcomes OR failure to meet specified assessment requirements
 Fail level 2  F2  N  below 40  Unsatisfactory performance on the majority of learning outcomes
 Non-graded fail  F  N  0-49  Unit assessed on a pass/fail basis only. Failed to meet specified assessment criteria to required standard
 Withdrawn  W    Withdrew after the census date without penalty
