Honours WAM calculation

Course Weighting per UoC:

General EducationLevel 1 CoursesLevel 2 CoursesLevel 3 CoursesLevel 4 Courses
\(\text{Faculty Honour Wam}=\frac{\sum{\text{Course Mark}\times\mathrm{UoC}\times\text{Course Weighting}}}{\sum{\text{UoC}\times\text{Course Weighting}}}\)
Honours WAM calculation notes
  • The Faculty WAM will not be the same as the overall WAM shown on your academic transcript on myUNSW, as the courses in your transcript are all assigned a weighting of 1.
  • For dual degrees, only the courses which count towards the Bachelor of Engineering degree are included in the Faculty WAM calculation.
  • In the event of failure(s) in a course, the first mark obtained is used in the Faculty WAM calculation.
  • Academic Withdrawal (AW) grades will count as 00FL (Fail) for the purposes of calculating the Faculty WAM.
  • The Faculty WAM is calculated to one decimal place and is not rounded up or down for the purposes of awarding honours.
  • Courses completed at another institution either prior to or during enrolment at UNSW are not used. E.g. cross-institutional, exchange programs or courses for which transfer credit was granted.
  • The year in the degree when a course is actually taken is irrelevant.
