Understanding your Transcript / Certificate of Achievement

Attempt Numbers

Where an attempt number is greater than 1 this indicates a re-sit attempt.  The number of re-sit attempts may differ on a programme by programme basis.

Selection Status

  1. A selection status of ‘ST’ indicates a module was followed on a study only basis and no results are expected.
  2. A selection status of 'TR' indicates a transcriptable module and the marks recorded are not used in the calculation of the classification awarded.

Module Mark Schemes

The transcript lists all the modules studied by the student named which contribute towards the overall named award. Study only modules and transcriptable modules (detailed above) are listed on the transcript but do not contribute to the overall award.

Each module will display a percentage mark (to one decimal place) and a module grade. Queen Mary uses a number of mark schemes for different awards and different levels and although many of the grades are the same, there are differences between the qualifying pass marks for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Please see the appropriate mark scheme below for details of individual module marks.
