Glossary of terms

Result not available

This indicates that a final result has not been able to be provided. The reason could be your practical component is still underway, assessment yet to be marked, illness of an examiner or examination paper not yet received from an overseas centre. The upgraded result will be released as soon as possible. 


If you have received a result of 'Fail' you will need to re-enrol in the course in the future if you wish to gain credit for it. 

Result withheld

If your results have been withheld, it will be because of outstanding fees or a library fine. Your results will be released as soon as the relevant fee is paid. 


A course which is transferred to a new program will have the grade changed to "T - Transfer to another USQ program" under the original program where the course was first studied. The original grade the student received for that course will only show under the new program and will contribute to your GPA under this program only. 

Block exemption

A block exemption is a block of courses (allocated grade "K") which may be used to satisfy pre-requisite requirements in the program.
