Module results reporting
Each School (or department) should have an official designated member of staff who is responsible for signing off module results. The member of staff should be the Head of School, Director of Teaching, or an authorised examinations officer.
Deadlines for reporting module results are available in the ‘Key dates and deadlines for staff’ document on the semester dates page.
How to report results
Schools must use the Module Management System (MMS) to report module results after exam diets in May, January and August. They should also use MMS to conclude deferred or undecided results.
After submitting modules results through MMS, Schools must also submit the following forms attesting the approval of the process by the examining board, including external examiners, to Registry (firstname.lastname@example.org):
Distance learning or non-standard modules
For non-standard or distance learning modules, Schools should also use MMS to report results.
However, Schools must first notify the assessment and awards team (email email@example.com or phone +44 (0)1334 46 4100) before using the system so that they can ensure the appropriate functionality is available in MMS.
To report a module result, use the following module grades alongside the numeric marks from the common reporting scale.
|P||Pass||7.0 to 20.0|
|P||Pass for pass/fail modules||0.0|
|F||Fail with right to re-assessment||4.0 to 6.9|
|F||Fail with no right to re-assessment||0.0 to 3.9|
|F||Fail for pass/fail modules||0.0|
|X||Failed to meet module requirements
