What does U / Q / X Grade mean?

Q

means query. There may be circumstances when your results are incomplete because of a query over some or all of your results. If this is the case, a Q will be reported on your provisional statement of Results until the query is investigated and resolved. Once a query is resolved, you will be issued with an updated result.

X

means incomplete results. This could be because requirements of the specification have not been met. Please contact your centre for more details. An X in CoPE means that you were absent.

U

means ungraded. This means you have not reached the minimum standard required to achieve a grade in the qualification or have zero marks or were absent. This result will not be recorded on your certificate.
