Grade Rosters are a means of collecting exam result information in a centrally maintained format, to enable the population of official University transcripts with useful and accurate data relating to a student's academic results.

What is a Grade Roster?

All data relating to assessment is held in CamSIS in tables called Grade Rosters. There is a Grade Roster for every module/paper within a subject and another to record the Class/Pass/Fail information for each subject. This enables meaningful data to appear on a student's official University transcript. This is important, as the University of Cambridge has a statutory requirement to provide students with their official University transcript after they have had a degree conferred either in person or in absence at a Degree Ceremony (excluding the Cambridge MA), or after they have completed a formal course of study where the qualification is not obtained by conferral at a Degree Ceremony.

Departments and Faculties upload their Grade Rosters, which are comma separated value files, onto CamSIS directly.The Student Registry offers training, guidance and support to enable this procedure to be completed successfully.
