5.9 Mark Release and Transcripts

Mid-Year Marks

The marks given for assessed work and examinations taken before the end of the academic year are always provisional and may be changed by the Board of Examiners.

Students should retain all of their assessed work because it may have to be resubmitted to the department just before the Board of Examiners meeting.

Assignments and Class Tests
  • Assignment and class test marks will be published via an appropriate online method. This may take the form of a data reveal page linked from a module resource page or the grade area of a Moodle module page.
  • Weekly / fortnightly assignments for first and second year modules with related tutorials / seminars will normally be returned to students in the small group session. These are likely to have a grade physically written on the paper, however it may not include penalties or considerations of mitigating circumstances. The online published version of the mark will be used to calculate the module mark. You are advised to check your online marks and contact the support office if you believe there is a discrepancy or issue
  • Assignment and class test marks will normally be returned within 20 working days.
December / January Examinations
  • Module marks will be returned within the academic year. These marks are provisional until considered by the examining board and ratified by the external examiners.
  • Marks will be returned as soon as possible therefore it is not possible to specify an exact date. However it will normally be no later than the end of term 2. You will be notified by email when the marks will be released.
  • Marks will be released to personal tutors in the first instance and will be published online one week later.
  • Personal tutors will not release marks by email or phone. You must use a published office hour in person to obtain your module marks if you wish to collect them prior to the online publication.
April / Summer Examinations
  • Year average / classifications will be published online as soon as possible after the relevant examining board.
  • You will be notified of the release of the summary information and provided a link by email.
  • We expect, but are not able to guarantee, that summary information will be released at the following times:
      • First year – 5 pm on Friday of week 10 of term 3

      • Second year – 12 noon on Friday of the week following the end of term 3

      • Third year – 12 noon on Thursday of week 10 of term 3

      • Fourth year – 12 noon on Thursday of week 10 term 3

      • MSc – 12 noon on Thursday of week 10 of term 3

  • Your personal tutor will have access to your individual module marks when the summary information is published.

    They will be available to discuss your results after the release on the Thursday in week 10 of term 3 (third and fourth years).

  • You should make arrangements to meet your personal tutor in good time via their preferred sign up method.

  • You are strongly advised to meet your personal tutor in person.

    • First and Second years who are required to resit or withdraw, or whose degree status is otherwise changed, will be provided with the contact details of a senior member of the department (usually the year tutor) who will be able to give additional advice.

    • Individual module marks for ST modules will become visible in Tabula approximately 2 weeks after the summary information is published.

MSc Dissertation and Classification
  • MSc dissertation marks will be released at the same time as the overall classification after the MSc examination board.
  • This is likely to be in early December in the Autumn Term following the dissertation submission.
  • You will be emailed with a link to access your results online.

Transcripts are only available for undergraduates via their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).

The HEAR is a record of academic and non-academic achievements which have been verified by the University. The HEAR provides a fuller picture of a student’s achievements whilst at university. As well as including information about academic achievement, it also includes more detailed information about the course of study and other activities undertaken, such as volunteering.

The HEAR is delivered by GradIntelligence (GradIntel) and is accessible online at

You will receive a registration email from them during your first academic year and you generate your own username on your first log in. Your Warwick e-mail is not your username but it is your default account so you can use it to regenerate a forgotten username and password. If you are a finalist you should consider changing the associated email account as your University of Warwick email account expires 12 months after graduation.

The GradIntel website gives you the option to share your HEAR with employers/institutions of your choosing by sending an electronic token which enables them to view your HEAR. Details about how to do this are available on the GradIntel website.
