Grade assignment decision rules

Note. If an assignment meets some of the descriptive criteria for a degree class (e.g. Merit), and some of the descriptive criteria for another degree class (e.g. Pass), it is at the discretion of the marker where to assign the grade (i.e. somewhere in the Merit or Pass range).
