What do the results code mean?

I remembered when I got my results back for the first time at uni and I had absolutely no clue what they meant!

My friends at other unis were talking about distinctions, HDs..and here we are with this H1, H2A thing which made no sense to me at the time.

So, I hope this post gives you a better idea what those subject codes represent.

What do the result codes mean?

Okay, there is a great big table online with a full run down of what alls the result codes mean. You can find that table here: http://policy.unimelb.edu.au/MPF1052#section-3.2

But you know what – here is the main stuff you’re looking for.

If you want to check out how our grading system matches up to other Australian universities, I found this good table on wikipedia (good old wikipedia).

Don’t know how credible this is

And if you’re wondering about what ‘GPA’ means…

GPA: What is it?

GPA stands for Grade Point Average which is basically your overall average at uni.

Our uni doesn’t publish our GPA because each uni has a different way to calculate it. For info why they don’t publish our GPA, read here.

BUT! Melb uni has a Grade Point Calculation Procedure available if you want to work your GPA out.

Hope this helps!
