Course Grades

Course results are available for paid members of the Institute.

Students will be notified by email when their course results are released. The release date for grades may vary by course. It is important for students to keep their email contact information up to date in their member profiles.

To obtain results:

1. Log in to your member account

2. Go to “My Education”

3. Go to “My Courses” > “Course Record”

Results will be available as PDF files from the same area of the website. Results will not be mailed except by request.

The Institute does not return examination answers or copies thereof, and registration in an examination waives any right of access a student may have to the same. Refer to the Appeals section.

Examination results may be released to the student’s employer. A student or member who tampers with or amends the official notice of examination result or transcript published by the Institute, or utters a document falsely purporting to be a true copy of such notice or transcript, will be subject to the penalties described in item 12 under the heading At the Examination Centre.

Examination Grades

Honours standing will be granted in each subject if not less than 80% of the possible marks are obtained in the course, as well as on the final exam.

A minimum of 60% of the possible marks must be obtained in order to receive a passing grade. A minimum of 55% must be obtained in the final examination by all classroom students and by distance learning/independent study students eligible for bonus marks.

Passing grades:
H = 80–100% of the available marks
B = 75–79% of the available marks
C = 65–74% of the available marks
D = 60–64% of the available marks

Failing grades:
X = 55–59% of the available marks
Y = 40–54% of the available marks
Z = less than 40% of the available marks

Actual exam marks will not be published.

Students who are unsuccessful and receive an X grade (55–59% of the marks) often feel they may have missed passing by only a mark or two. It should be noted that, as classroom courses are out of a total of 300, 1% is equivalent to three marks. Therefore, 55–59% is a range of three to 15 marks, and students may be more than one or two marks away from a pass.

Likewise, with the final exam grade, as the final exam is out of 200, 55–59% is a range of two to 10 marks.
