Course results are available for paid members of the Institute. Grades are released once the exams are marked, and it may vary course by course. On average grades start being released approximately 4 weeks after the start of the examination administration period.
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 examination answers and marks. If you wish to appeal your grade please refer to the Appeals section.
Examination results may be released to the student’s employer, upon consent by the student. 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 Examinations Regulations.
Honours standing will be granted in each subject in which 80% or more of the possible marks are obtained in the course, as well as on the final exam. To qualify for an Honours certificate, a student must obtain a minimum of EIGHT (8) honours grades out of TEN (10) subjects. See Credits/Exemptions for more information.
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.
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
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Actual exam marks will not be published.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 final grades for 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.
Note: Students who are unsuccessful and receive a Z grade (less than 40% of available marks) are required to enroll in Continued Tuition and retake the course. Please review our Rewrite policy for more information.
