Including information on getting a transcript, what you will see with your results and where to get additional support or advice.

Results dates

Results are released in February or March (semester 1), July (semester 2), September (supplementary period), and November (PGT dissertation/project results).

On the day of results release you will receive an email from the University, following which you will be able to view your full results via SAMIS. Some part-time and all distance-learning students may have different results release dates.

The next results release will be as follows:

  • Monday 6 March 2023

IMPORTANT: Your unit results are provisional until the end of the academic year, unless you are a student in one of the course years listed below:

  • Final year BSc Architecture
  • Year 3 BSc Business/ Business Administration

If you are in either of these course years, you will receive your semester 1 unit results and progression decision on Monday 6 March. Both your unit results and end-of-stage (progression) decision will have been confirmed by a Board of Studies. This means that if you wanted to, you can submit an academic appeal against these results.

What you'll see: unit results

For your unit results you will see:

  • the assessment item mark(s)
  • the unit result (a mark and grade)
  • the outcome of any IMC claims (see below)
  • if scaling was applied to any of the units you took (see below)

If you submitted an IMC claim you will see if it was accepted. If not, you will also see a short reason why. We have released information about how IMC claims work and what IMCs can and can't do.

If scaling has been applied to assessment marks in any of your units information about the reason for the scaling and the method applied will be available in SAMIS.

What you'll see: end-of-stage results

If applicable you will see the following information which has been agreed by a Board of Studies:

  • Your end-of-stage progression or award decision
  • The award classification.

We’ve released the following guides with further information about end-of-stage results:

  • Understanding your results - which confirms how results were considered by Boards of Examiners
  • Academic Decision Codes - here you will be able to find a link to all the decision codes received with results with a full explanation. This explanation will help you understand your results and any next steps for you. This is the decision about your progression or award that has been agreed by the Board of Studies.

Your Self-Service Transcript or Record of Assessment

You will be able to access the Self-Service Transcript and Self-Service Record of Assessment facilities in SAMIS once the results have been released.

Transcript for submission to a third party

If you need a copy of your transcript to be sent to a third party or another institution to confirm your results, please request one via the Bath Self-Service Portal and ensure you include the email address of the third party or organisation you need it to be sent to.

Getting feedback

Feedback on your assignments: what it is and how to use it explains how to use your tutor's feedback for your future assignments.

How can I appeal against a decision?

You can appeal a decision of the Board of Studies (for example, regarding your progression or classification), within normal timescales. There is a guide which provides further support and information on the process of appealing against an academic decision. You cannot make an appeal if your results are provisional.

Further advice and support

The University understands that sometimes your results may not be what you were hoping for or expecting. Please remember that there are many sources of support for you here at the University, both academically and more personally. Please do reach out to talk to someone.
