Massey University Grades

From 2017 Massey University will adopt a new marking scheme. We will drop R grades, introduce a new C- grade, and change the mark range for each grade to be consistent with the other universities in New Zealand.

Our new marking scheme will look like this:

Marking Scheme Cut-off Points


What has changed?

There are three significant changes:

  • the introduction of the C- grade for marks 50 through to 54.99
  • the elimination of the Restricted (R) pass
  • the adjustment of the range of marks for other grades to align with this change (e.g. a C grade will now be 55 to 59.99)

The changes mean we will have the same marking scheme as other universities in New Zealand. So, the grades you receive at Massey University have equal meaning across the university sector.
