Exam Results are out on Monday, 6 December. What happens next?

You sat for your exams and now have your results. But what if you didn’t do as well as you hoped? Read on for some advice from our experienced MGA advocates.

First of all, please don’t panic! We all have our ups and downs and these things happen sometimes.

If you do receive an email regarding academic progress from your faculty, you may be required to fill in a form. There are three levels of response and depending on how many units you have failed, your faculty will advise about the steps you need to take. That is why you should read your email carefully. 


Here are some things to remember:

  • If there is a due date to respond, put it in your diary and respond by that date! 
  • The University will not take any action during the close-down period from Thursday, 23 December 2021 to Monday, 3 January 2022. 
  • If you are required to attend an academic progress meeting, this will take place in February or March 2022. 
  • You may need to gather some documents to show the University what went wrong with your studies and you will have plenty of time to prepare. 

Most importantly, remember that the MGA advocates can guide you through this situation. They can help you complete the forms. They can come to the hearings with you.

MGA advocacy is a free and confidential service, so please get in touch! You don’t need to go through this alone.
