Exam Results & GPA

Module results for students currently studying at UWS will be available once they have been confirmed by the Subject Panels, which meet at the end of each term.

Details of students’ eligibility for an award or for progression to the next stage of their programme will be available after the Progression and Awards Boards (PABs) have met. For most programmes, PABs meet in June and August.

Where can I access my module results?

If you are a current student at the University and you simply wish to view your module results, this can be done by logging in to Self Service Banner with your Banner ID and PIN. If you have forgotten your login details, you should contact the Hub.

From Self Service, you will be able to print out the confirmed module results from the current academic session.

You will be able to access your module results from the “Grade” screen within Student Self Service Banner. You will also be able to use the same screen to see the decision of the PAB (Progression and Awards Board), which will show you whether you are eligible to progress to the next stage of your programme; whether you are eligible for an award; or whether you are required to undertake re-assessments.


When will this information be available?

  • Term 1 (T1) module results will start to become available from early February
  • Term 2 (T2) module results will start to become available from early June
  • Term 3 (T3/Resit) module results will start to become available from early September

These module results have been confirmed and approved by the subject panel and the subject external examiner. They take account of Extenuating Circumstances Statements which have been upheld by the University Panel.

Where appropriate, decisions from the Progression and Awards Boards will start to become available in mid February for T1, mid June for T2, and mid September for T3.

More precise dates are published on the Moodle 'Welcome' page and on Self Service Banner Main Menu nearer the time. Results and decisions are released as quickly as possible following these dates, so students are advised to check Self Service Banner on a regular basis.

If your results are not shown by the end of February for T1, the end of June for T2, and the middle of September for T3/Resit, you are advised to contact your School or personal tutor.

Please do NOT contact the Examinations Unit directly, as they are unlikely to be able to give you more information and this will just cause delays in the releasing of the results.

Will the results still be sent to me by post?

All students should access their module results and progression / award decision on-line via Self Service Banner.

If you are deemed eligible for an award from the University, this information will be confirmed in a results letter which will be sent to you within 5 working days of the date when the award was approved by the Progression and Awards Board.

What should I do if I cannot access the information?

If you are having technical problems in accessing the results via Banner, you should contact the Hub.

Who should I contact if I have questions about my results?

If you have any questions about your examinations or coursework results, you should contact your School office in the first instance.

The Examinations Unit can be contacted by email at or by telephone on 0141 848 3940.

What is a Grade Point Average (GPA)?

When you complete a module at UWS you will receive a mark expressed as a percentage. This mark is associated with a grade.

Since 2016/17, a Grade Point Average (GPA) is applied to your result. For example, a mark of 65% would mean a grade of B1 and a grade point score of 2.5.

The GPA is the average of all of your grade points, with each module weighted according to its credit value so, for example, a 40 credit module would carry twice the weight of a 20 credit module. Otherwise, all modules are counted equally so modules in later stages of your programme are given no additional weight over modules from earlier in your programme.

Your GPA will be automatically calculated in Banner on a rolling basis and you will be able to view your current GPA there at any time.

Further information can be found in the GPA Information Booklet.
