Marks and classifications must be uploaded into Banner and released to the Assessment & Progress Team and the necessary paperwork submitted by the deadline.
The deadlines for return of marks and classifications can be found in the current timeline, available on the Timelines for Programmes and Assessment webpage.
Return of Final Marks
Once marks have been agreed by the Assessment Board they can be entered into the Banner form SWADMRK (or SWADRMK for resits). Following ratification by both the internal and external examiners they can be released to the Assessment & Progress Team for processing by clicking the 'Release marks' button.
Schools are required to send to the Assessment & Progress Team (via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org) the Notification of Approved Module Marks memo with a full and accurate list of the modules where marks have been approved by the internal and external examiners, and released. The list should include confirmation that the marks have been approved by the internal and external examiners, the full module code and title, the module CRN, and the academic year. The memo can be found on the Process Management SharePoint site. (To to access the site members of staff will need to use their University username and password. If unsure of how to access the site staff members should contact their Functional Manager.)
The Assessment & Progress Team will only roll marks into academic history once the memo has been received and the marks will not appear on Minerva for students to view until they have been rolled into academic history.
Schools will be unable to make any further changes to marks once they have been released. Any requests for amendments to marks should be submitted to the via the online Change of Marks form and sent together with the signature or approval of both the internal and external examiners. Once approved the mark will be changed in Banner. More information on the process and a link to the form can be found on the Process Management SharePoint site.
For more information on how to input marks into Banner, please refer to the B220 Departmental Exams Banner training manual.
Return of Classifications
Classifications can be released to the Assessment & Progress Team through the Classification Tool on Banner (SWADCLT). The tool will only allow a classification to be released if all the student's marks have been released by the teaching schools and the Notification of Approved Awards and Classification memo with a full and accurate list of the programmes which have been approved by the internal and external examiners is received by the Assessment & Progress Team.
Change of Awards cannot be released from the Classification Tool, the Assessment & Progress Team must enter these awards manually. Details of what the changed award is (both the new programme and classification) should be noted in the comments section in the Classication Tool.
The memo should include confirmation that the awards and/or classifications have been approved by the internal and external examiners, the full programme code and title and the academic year. The memo can be found on the Process Management SharePoint site.
The memo must be submitted to the Assessment & Progress Team (via the email address email@example.com).
For more information on using the Classification Tool, please refer to the B273T Classification Tool training manual.
Releasing Results in Schools to Students
Schools may release provisional marks and grades to students when these are available, however final results may not be released to students until after the official results day.
After this time, Schools may post final results within the school (using anonymous mark sheets/pass lists) and offer feedback on performance and information on resits and/or progression to students.
Release of Results by the Assessment & Progress Team
On the official results day, all marks and classifications which have been rolled into academic history will be released to students on the Results and Resit Application page (available via Minerva). For more information on how to access the results page see the Results webpage on the Student website.
