The University marks in grades and not percentages.  The UG grading structure goes from A+ to D- (pass marks), F+ to F- and G (fail). The PG grading structure goes from A+ to C- (pass marks), F+ to F- and G (fail). 

Failure to submit an item of assessment, or attend an examination will result in the awarding of a ‘G’ grade. Each grade is linked to a numeric value in the student record system to ensure that the classification algorithm can be run.

LG – submitted late and outside timeframe allowed; “3”

NG – submitted but work contained nothing of merit; “2”

AG – submitted but awarded G grade following outcome of Academic Misconduct Panel. “1”

G – nothing submitted.  “0”

Prior to Submitting and Grading Electronically (SaGE) students whose grades were suspended due to suspected misconduct, staff would have allocated a ZZ Grade. Exempt Grade is the electronic equivalent.
