You will need your password and student number to access your results.
To reset your password, follow these steps:
If you still encounter issues log a call with ITD (select ‘Forgotten Password).
What do I do if I am unhappy with my results?
Read - There are processes available for students who may be unhappy with their results. These can include the Viewing of scripts (see here) Grade rechecks (see here) and grade appeals (see here).
If students have deficient grades (F or NG grades) they will need to re-sit these exams at the annual repeats process during the summer.

Engage – You may have questions around your results and its implications for your academic progression. If so, it might be worthwhile to engage with a member of academic or support staff so that you can get the information, support and advice you need. To speak with the designated Student Support Officer in your faculty our SSO Contact Page to find our contact details. First Year Undergraduate students also have a designated First Year Support Coordinator see here for information. It might also be worthwhile to chat with your module leader, Course Director or Academic Advisor.
Support - It might be worth your while to reflect on your experience last semester and consider whether accessing an available service would be of support to you going forward.
The Student Affairs Division have a wide range of Support Services available to students to provide guidance, information, advice, and support to students throughout the academic year. There are also a wide range of academic supports available to students through the Learning Centres; see here.
Understand - Many students will experience receiving a disappointing grade or exam result during their time in academia. Often this can be a difficult to accept, particularly if you feel you put lots of time and effort into your study/preparation. Try not to be overly self-critical, rather try and take some time to understand what happened so that you prepare for future assessments. Your grades don't define your success!
Learn from it! Look forward! - Try and find out what needs to improve. Accepting that you have received this grade and understanding that you need to improve can help you move on. If possible, talk to a classmate or friend who sat the exam. Also talking to your module leader or someone with knowledge in the area can help you reflect on your grade, decipher where you might have lost marks and offer some tips going forward.
