We've put together the following list of assessment terms to provide you with more information for when you receive your results letter, along with more general information around assessments.

All definitions are generalised to standard assessment regulations. Many programmes have specific regulations that are applied which are not detailed here. If you are unsure of what your results mean, you must speak to a member of staff for more specific details. If you do not know who your programme team is, contact AskBU.

You can find all BU standard assessment regulations on the Important information page, under the ‘Assessment’ section.
