Keep Studying Newstep in 2021

As you have up to two years to complete Newstep, you can continue studying in 2021

How to calculate your progress

Remember, to successfully complete Newstep you need to pass a total of 80 units, including compulsory core courses and directed courses. Visit the program page for the list of courses and completion requirements.

Check your grades in myHub and use the following to calculate how many units you need to complete Newstep:

80 UNITS – TOTAL UNITS PASSED* = UNITS TO COMPLETE

*Passed units include grades P, C, D, HD, UP or EX. For more information on grade codes click here. Please note you cannot attempt a course again that you have already passed.

Any Fail (FF), Withdraw (WW) or Incomplete (I) grades do not count towards completing your program, you will need to attempt the course again, or try a different course and pass it.

  • WC is a unique grade for 2020 which recognises the effect COVID-19 may have had on your studies. For a mark of 49 or below, you will receive a WC grade instead of a formal Fail (FF) grade and it will only appear on your unofficial transcript. You will still need to re-attempt this course if you want it to count towards completing your program.
